The newly completed Microbiology lab allows Triton Ceramics to test ceramic filters created right in Alfred. The location of the lab in Alfred, NY, USA keeps Nick close to many professionals and resources necessary to research this new water filter technology. The new lab puts us in an excellent position to both continue research on the technology, and to support SHEEP Indonesia. SHEEP are our partners in Indonesia, and previously we helped build microbiology and ceramics labs at their location in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The Indonesian and US labs are similarly set up. Because of their location, the labs in the US have external access to ceramics, and microbiology experts. They also provide easy access to the extensive array of testing machines located in Alfred. The US lab will be the seat of the research being done on the technology, while the Indonesian labs will support the development and manufacture that will eventually be done in that location.
Thanks to Jane and Paul Simkin, Poplar Ridge Monthly Meeting, and Ruth Hyde, Rochester Monthly meeting for donating the money used to buy supplies. Thanks to Astuti Bijlefeld for donating the pressure cooker we use to sterilize the lab equipment. And Joe Dosch and Nancy Evangelista for providing the space that the lab is in!
