Our products

Product category: Suction devices

Adhesive Applicators

POREX® Adhesive Applicator Wicks are designed for fluid-based applicator devices used as sealing agents for wound closure, such as topical surgical incisions. Adhesive applicator wicks can also act as filters if the solutions are mixed and expressed from crushed glass ampoules. The wick design offers optimal wicking rate of the liquid adhesive from the reservoir to the tip surface, which is then used as the applicator. It also provides specified lay-down of the liquid adhesive from the applicator to the wound surface. The wick’s strength and pliability ensures appropriate press-fit seal between the wick applicator and the device’s exterior barrel, and also allows for automated assembly processes. Adhesive applicator wicks can be sterilized by either gamma or ethylene oxide (EtO) processing.

Arterial Syringe Vents

POREX® Arterial Syringe Vents are engineered to eliminate blood bypass in arterial syringe devices to protect healthcare workers from exposure to blood and bloodborne pathogens when collecting blood samples from patients. These vents are comprised of porous plastic containing a functional additive that immediately swells upon contact with blood or other fluids. They are optimized for desired airflow and pressure-drop characteristics generated by arterial pressure and are compatible with ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilization processes.

Product category: Filtration systems

Retention Filters for Dialysis Media

POREX® Retention Filters provide specified containment of dialysis system media, such as those that utilize concentrated liquid sodium bicarbonate. The filters are designed for balanced filtration efficiency, fluid flow, back pressure, and excellent chemical and physical resistance. Filters can be customized to accommodate device design requirements.

Drug Reservoirs

POREX® Drug Reservoirs are loaded with a powdered pharmaceutical agent (e.g., nicotine) and incorporated into a drug delivery device (e.g., a smoking cessation device). Porex can develop the reservoir either from porous plastic or porous fiber materials, depending on the design and mechanical requirements of the reservoir. Both types of materials are engineered for dosage accuracy and structural integrity. They are optimized for loading and absorption of the drug into the porous material and for statistical consistency of drug dose release, as well as for air flow and chemical resistance. Customized part geometries can accommodate varied device requirements.

Inhaler Filters

Customized POREX® Inhaler Filters are used in metered dose inhalers to deliver measured amounts of pharmaceutical agents to patients via oral-bronchial administration. The replacement air is filtered into the device during dosage administration and the filter protects the pharmaceutical agent from contamination by airborne microbes. These filters are optimized for pore size, airflow, and dimensional tolerances based on device requirements and specifications and are designed for the most demanding production requirements. In some inhalers, the filters are also used to protect the device's mechanical valves from particles of dry powder. They can be customized to promote preservative-free packaging.

P3 Technology™

Is your packaging maintaining sterility after sterilization?
As prevention of healthcare associated infection (HAI) becomes more important, hospitals are asking questions about the protection provided by medical device packaging after sterilization.

To assist device manufacturers with the prevention of HAI, Porex has developed P3 Technology. It is a new venting capability for ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilization in medical device packaging applications. The initial offering will be specialty porous PTFE membranes that are outstanding sterile barriers with high airflow. Compared to flashspun high-density polyethylene, the porous structure of PTFE is more uniform. POREX P3 Technology can help improve the EtO sterilization efficiency and maintain medical device sterility after sterilization.
