Porex to Present Suite of Innovative Solutions for Broad Range of Healthcare Applications at Compamed 2018

(Fairburn, GA – October 26, 2018) – Life sciences technologies that improve sample accuracy, expedite lab results and enhance patient comfort will be among the various products featured at the Porex booth in Hall 8a / C14 at Compamed 2018 in Düsseldorf, Germany, Nov. 12-15.

Porex delivers innovations for the healthcare industry that improve performance, purity, reliability and accuracy through its array of liquid handling, wound care, medical device and diagnostic solutions. Using proprietary and patented technologies, Porex designs and manufactures products that are revolutionizing life science applications.

“With our diagnostics and liquid handling technologies, we strive to engineer and optimize products that provide accurate and reliable results for diagnostic and analytical applications without fear or concern that the sample has been compromised,” said Maria De Capua, vice president at Porex.  “It is with this high level of expertise, precision and care that we are able to address critical material design challenges in the healthcare industry.”

Porex’s “Collection to Detection” materials not only increase the accuracy of test results but also expedite laboratory operations and procedures that reduce overall costs. The diverse portfolio of POREX® products, media and filters improves the speed, flexibility and mobility of sample collection, transport, preparation and analysis for diagnostic applications.

Manufactured without additives and with a proprietary polyethylene (PE) matrix material that prevents cross-contamination and sample carryover, the FORTRESS™ pipette tip filter is the first certified pure liquid barrier filter. Sample purity and accuracy within manual and robotic liquid handling operations can be transformed with this technology.

POREX® advanced antimicrobial, medical-grade foams and composites enhance patient care by adding comfort and decreasing healing times.  Their full spectrum of customized dressings of varying thicknesses and absorptive capabilities covers the most complex wounds –  including ulcers, lacerations, incisions and infected areas.

“POREX® patented foam and formula technologies are able to deliver highly effective healing while offering enhanced safety without the cytotoxicity and other drawbacks of traditional silver-infused dressings,” said Jack Chan, strategic marketing director of medical technologies at Porex. “Our unique matrix composition using specialized techniques for incorporating silver provides long-term healing capabilities.”

POREX® porous solutions also provide infection prevention, surgical equipment design and medical packaging options. POREX® Virtek™ Medical PTFE materials and filters, which are used in multiple applications including infection control, urinary drainage and injection therapy, are engineered to increase  medical device durability and functionality.
