Blood Transfusion Safety System

Reduce risk of transfusion-transmitted infections

As an example of our partnerships with many innovative medical device manufacturers, Porex partnered with CERUS on their unique INTERCEPT™ Blood System that is designed to reduce the risk of transfusion-transmitted infections by inactivating a broad range of pathogens that may be present in donated blood.  Porex designed the porous media that incorporates the functional binder which is critical to the pathogen inactivating process.

Customizable for other blood management solutions, POREX® porous media:

  • Can be customized to your design specifications – Customized two- and three-dimensional porous matrix shapes can be developed for precise filtering and flow requirements.  
  • Can be functionalized – Proprietary binders and other media can be incorporated into the porous matrix to functionalize the filtering and binding capabilities.
  • Delivers high-quality and consistent reliability– Medical device manufacturers around the world rely on our customized medical device components, which provide functional solutions for challenging applications.

Dialysis Media Retention Filters

Increase containment of dialysis system media

Designed for depth filtration efficiency, fluid flow, back pressure and excellent chemical and physical resistance, POREX® retention filters provide specified containment of dialysis system media, such as those that utilize concentrated liquid sodium bicarbonate.

Trusted by manufacturers around the world, our customized retention filters:

  • Provide specific containment–Customized filters provide containment of dialysis system media, including those systems that use concentrated liquid sodium bicarbonate.
  • Increase filtration efficiency– Designed for depth filtration, fluid flow, back pressure and excellent chemical and physical resistance of dialysis media. The depth filter provides a more complete and secure filtration vs. typical screen filters.
  • Can be customized –Tailored to accommodate specific device design requirements of dialysis media.

Sepsis Blood Filtration Adsorber

Customized designs to capture lethal endotoxins

The ALTECO® LPS Adsorber is a unique medical device for extracorporeal removal of endotoxins during hemoperfusion that uses a synthetic peptide to selectively and irreversibly bind several times the endotoxin load found in patients with severe sepsis. In partnership with Alteco, Porex designed the porous matrix to provide an optimal binding surface for the peptide coating.   

Customizable for many blood filtration solutions, POREX® porous media:

  • Can be customized to your design specifications – Customized two- and three-dimensional porous matrix shapes can be developed for precise filtering and flow requirements. 
  • Can be functionalized – Proprietary binders and other media can be incorporated into the porous matrix to functionalize the filtering and binding capabilities.
  • Delivers high-quality and consistent reliability– Medical device manufacturers around the world rely on our customized medical device components, which provide functional solutions for challenging applications.
