Laboratory Studies

 

LifeStraw® Family 2.0 is a newly designed product that utilizes the same membrane technology as LifeStraw® Family 1.0. The membranes used for the two products are exactly the same. Therefore, studies conducted on the efficacy of LifeStraw® Famly 1.0 can also be attributed to LifeStraw® Family 2.0.
