Porex Corporation (POREX®), part of Filtration Group, offers advanced solutions for laboratory and medical professionals that speed fluid transfer of diagnostics, improve accuracy and purity in liquid handling, and enhance wound management and improve clinical outcomes. These offer new unmatched capabilities for a wide range of life science applications.
POREX is equipped to offer medical product designers and life science professionals unmatched capabilities and internal expertise to help develop solutions that address an array of material design challenges. POREX's solutions in porous plastics, foam, fibre, porous PTFE, Certified Pure Porex™ and functionalised porous media help designers significantly shorten the development of novel product designs and prototypes.
Looking to speed up operations and reduce the cost of diagnostics? Look no further than POREX's "Collection to Detection" complete diagnostics solutions, which utilize advanced enabling materials such as porous PE, microporous PTFE, glass fiber membranes, proprietary coatings and bio-activated media to provide critical functionality in the lab. The result? Accurate, precise and rapid results that will save you time and money, and at the same time, offering the latest advanced porous materials for diagnostics that speed fluid transfer and improved accuracy.
By preventing your samples from carryover and cross-contamination, the entirely inert and hydrophobic POREX FORTRESS™ liquid barrier pipette tip filters set the new standard for pipettes, making non-filtered pipettes virtually obsolete. Manufactured without interference-causing additives and with a proprietary material that blocks aerosols and contaminants, the FORTRESS pipette tip filter is certified as the industry's first pure liquid barrier filter.
POREX Advanced Wound Care Materials offered new concepts in wound care that improve patient comfort and promote faster healing, addressing infections and managing scars.
Promoting faster healing, addressing healthcare-associated infections and assisting with scar management, POREX MEDISPONGE® and SUPERSOFT® antimicrobial medical-grade foams feature ultra-pure formulations and contain optimised absorptive capacities. The hydrophilic, polyurethane foams and laminates resist tearing and improve fluid retention under pressure for diverse wounds, from acute to chronic. POREX's advanced wound materials are also soothing to the touch, improving patient comfort and care.
Through protection against unwanted fluid transmission, POREX fluid-canister, negative-wound-pressure and suction filters help improve infection control outcomes. The advanced filters use specialised porous polymer valves that seal off liquid and air flow when fluids reach a critical level. Optimised designs include an integrated splash guard that prevents premature shut-off from splash issues, a patented color-change valve that activates upon liquid exposure, and an enhanced infection-control design featuring activated carbon that controls odor and prevents unwanted fluid spillage.
POREX provides an unmatched scope of porous technologies to increase precision, accuracy and reliability in lab and medical challenges like filtration, fluid management, separation, extraction and purification procedures. POREX technologies are optimised for use in critical medical and clinical sciences such as diagnostics and liquid handling. Innovative solutions utilise an unparalleled portfolio of materials including porous plastics, porous PTFE, foam, fibre and functionalised and bio-activated porous materials. In the healthcare and bioscience markets, these materials are cost-effective and easily device-inserted.
For medical professionals seeking enhanced performance, consistency, scalability and a new standard of purity, POREX® can provide the ultimate solution from design to application.
