Sample Analysis

IVD/Micro Fluidic Media and Filters

Advances in micro fluidic systems have strong potential for detection of a wide range of analytes with reduced sample and reagent volume, lower costs and shorter analysis times. High–fidelity multiplex and multiclass assays that synergize components and achievements in nanotechnology, molecular diagnostics, micro fluidics and microelectronics, have the ability to create new and powerful measurement tools in a small device footprint that meet or exceed today’s analytical performance requirements.

Critical to the function of lab-on-a-chip, molecular diagnostics and POC analysis solutions is the incorporation and use of highly specialized, pure materials and media in the areas of sample filtration and absorption, particulate capture, debubbling, venting, fluid metering, separation and more.POREX Micro Fluidic Media and Filters are the smart enabling materials that provide critical functionality in micro device applications.

Additionally, POREX Micro Fluidic Media and Filters are robust, certified non-leachable and extractable, easy to handle and can be device inserted using common techniques as press fitting, heat staking and ultrasonic welding.POREX Micro Fluidic Media and Filters are available in sheet and complex three-dimensional structures, in a wide variety of advanced porous material configurations including porous plastics, microporous PTFE, porous polymeric fiber, porous glass fiber membrane, porous composites and functionalized and bioactivated porous media.


Intake Filters

Use with automated instrumentation, bench top dispensers or wherever sample is drawn from a master storage bottle. Disposable filter is manufactured of UHMWPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) and filters particulate matter down to 10 micron. Attaches to equipment line with glass weight (not provided). Packaged 55 filters per container and 10 containers to the case or 1,000 to the bulk package.

6603 Container of 55 filters
6965 Container of 1,000 filters

Inline Filters

Use inline air and gas filters from Porex to filter laboratory reagents, gas, air, fuel and a variety of other liquids. The tortuous path filter element contained in a solid polyethylene housing traps particles as small as 10 microns. Inline air filters and gas filters are available in 10, 25 and 125 micron sizes with a length of 2.394 inches (60.81 mm). Retention efficiency as tested per ASTM F795-88 in water with particle sizes of 25–30 microns.* Packaged 500 filters to the package and 5 packages to the case.
