1,000 autopsies coming up

Our UK-based senior research chemist, Max Fazel, developed RO membrane autopsy techniques with Ted Darton when both worked for Houseman Permacare in the early 1990s.

From 1998 to 2001, Fernando del Vigo, now technical director for Genesys Spain and Latin America, was based at the Houseman factory in Wythenshawe, Manchester, where he assisted Max with autopsies.

When Genesys started in June 2001, Fernando was the first employee. He set up a flat sheet test rig and equipment at his home in Santander and used his parents’ garden to cut open membranes.

From these humble beginnings the Genesys Membrane Products autopsy lab has developed into a world-renowned facility that has now completed 987 membrane autopsies, probably more than any other lab in the world. The resulting data has been the source of a number of papers, which you can download from our website.

At the IDA world congress in 2013, Nuria Peña won the best research paper prize in the membrane category for her work on physical and chemical damage to membranes.

The Madrid autopsy lab will hit the milestone of 1,000 autopsies sometime in early 2015. To mark the occasion, we’re offering a prize of an iPad to the person who submits the thousandth membrane for autopsy. If company rules dictate that you can’t accept the prize, we’ll make a donation to the charity of your choice to the same value.
