Biosan Medical-Biological Research & Technologies Company (Biosan) is green sustainable environment policy supporter located in Latvia. Since Latvia is one of the greenest European countries with low carbon intensity as well as one of the World top 25 in share of primary energy comes from renewables Biosan decided to implement these country values also in its production process and pay attention to each production step to make it nature friendly as possible.

Research and Development

Throughout the R&D process, the department is devoted in creating innovative laboratory equipment that emphasizes eco-friendly design principles and responsible research practices. We prioritize energy efficiency by incorporating low-power components and thermal management systems. We reduce material usage and waste by applying efficient PCB design. We follow DFM guidelines to ensure efficient and eco-friendly manufacturing processes, minimizing waste and optimizing the use of resources. Our material selection focuses on sustainable, recycled, and recyclable options, and we strive to avoid hazardous substances (RoHS compliance). 

In compliance with the 2012/19/EU Directive, we design products that are easy to disassemble, facilitating proper recycling and waste management. We perform comprehensive lifecycle assessments to identify the environmental impact of our products and uncover opportunities for improvement. We emphasize modularity and ease of repair, extending product lifespans and reducing electronic waste.

As part of our commitment to environmentally responsible product development (94/62/EC Directive). We strive to optimize the performance, weight, size and shape of our devices, making them easier to package with minimal waste. This approach not only reduces packaging materials but also contributes to more efficient transportation and reduced carbon emissions.

By integrating environmentally conscious best practices into our R&D processes, Biosan is committed to minimizing the environmental footprint of our laboratory equipment and contributing to a greener future.


Our commitment to sustainability does not end with our products being finished. We always try to optimize the production, not only to reduce the costs, but also to reduce the unnecessary production stages with its related energy consumption and waste. One of the examples is our UVR-M and UVR-Mi modification, where we had reduced the production time twice by switching from case thermoforming to molding. We incorporated the maximum fixing elements to be the part of the case rather than producing them separately. Another great addition was the switch from manual fixing of the metallic foil to batch coating. Both steps had positive effect on production and sustainability. Implementation of green policies through modifications is part of our way of live and every day thinking, rather than being obliged to follow a certain standard.


These intentions are kept in mind when project is transferred to manufacturing department, all materials used in manufacturing process have European certificate of conformity, majority of plastic parts are not painted because they already have appropriate brand color and used low melting point plastic help to further reduce the electricity consumption whereby CO2 emissions is reduced as well. Parts during manufacturing process is cleaned using closed loop bioremediation processes which help to reduce usage of harmful solvents which contain volatile organic compounds and may cause health and environment problems such as skin irritation or contaminated ground water. Implemented electricity saving and unleaded soldering. To further reduce amount of volatile organic compounds the silk print process is gradually replaced by printed front panels.


Although our equipment packages are made of recyclable materials, we recommend users to keep and store packaging material for future shipment or storage of the unit as well as revert the unit after its service life to Biosan for disposal in its packaging, thereby reducing the necessity to produce new packaging material. Pallets are reused, and recycled when damaged. In 2019 we have started replacement of expanded polyethylene filling material in transportation boxes with paper cushioning that is completely recyclable. We choose our agreed suppliers based on their approached environment and health impact, e.g., our main packaging supplier Environmental and quality policy.

Packaging Materials

Box, cardboard inserts, paper cushioning - corrugated cardboard (PAP 20)

Bubble-wrap, bags - low density polyethylene (LDPE 4)

Strapping tape, protection corners – polypropylene (PP 5)

Foam inserts - expanded polyethylene (EPE)(LDPE 4)

Since 2019 Biosan decrease by 25-30% EPE usage for packaging materials.


All leavings during R&D, modifications, manufacturing and packaging as well as other business processes are managed in Biosan and collected by waste management and recycling companies in accordance with EU (e.g., 94/62/EC Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive) and national legislative requirements.

Quality / Integrated Management System

Biosan complies and is certified in accordance with international standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 requirements, also fulfills all requirements of ISO 14001:2015. Biosan operations comply with the 2012/19/EU Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE-directive) and according marking is indicated on the product labels. Biosan is ready to receive the products after the service life for further passing for disposal. All products manufactured by Biosan comply with the requirements of the RoHS3 Directive 2015/863/EU.
