Stefan Sproll, Ph.D
Vice President and General Manager – Life Science, Oxyphen
I joined Oxyphen as the Head of R&D in 2010 after completing my Ph.D. in Chemistry at the Ludwig-Maximilian University Munich. From the moment I discovered Oxyphen’s unique membrane technology, I have been captivated by its versatility and the endless possibilities it enables. At Oxyphen, we are driven by precision and quality which form the core of our DNA. We take pride in ensuring that our membrane serves as the reliable foundation for the products manufactured by our diverse range of customers.
In 2020, Oxyphen became a part of the Filtration Group, propelling our growth and development to new heights. After holding positions as Head of R&D and Deputy CEO, I eagerly accepted the challenge of becoming the Vice President and General Manager of the newly established Oxyphen Life Science division. It fills me with pride to combine the Swiss way of life with our membrane technology, enabling new applications and empowering our customers to bring their visions to life.
The applications of our membranes span a wide range of fields. Whether it be cell culturing and tissue engineering, sterile venting of medical devices, precision filtration/separation in diagnostic tests, or their use as electroosmotic pumps in wearables or high precision filters for particle and cell capturing, we provide comprehensive support to our customers. Our entire team at Oxyphen is delighted to contribute to our mission of making the world safer, healthier, and more productive. Each day, we strive to supply and improve one of the most remarkable filtration materials available, playing our part in achieving this noble objective.
Vice President / General Manager – Automotive and Industrial, Oxyphen
As the Business Unit Leader at Oxyphen, I spearhead the Automotive & Industrial segment. I joined shortly after Oxyphen’s integration into the Filtration Group in 2020, bringing with me a background in Business Administration and a wealth of experience in commercial and business development. My expertise primarily lies in technical fibers for capillary systems utilized in diagnostics, electronics, and consumer goods.
It is my pleasure to build on this experience in taking the Oxyphen Automotive & Industrial team to become the market leader in precision controlled venting solutions needed in various applications such as electronic safety and communication devices.
We will fulfill our mission of making the world healthier, safer, and more productive by continuing to build a strong team that is centered around flexible, decentralized work groups collaborating with a minimum of organization boundaries and a work environment in which everyone can play an active part in shaping our future.
Joining the Oxyphen team offers me the great opportunity to develop this small solution-based family-owned business into a globally known solution provider for pressure compensation solutions in critical applications such as electronic safety or communication devices.
Our various membrane solutions play a vital role in enabling our customers products to regulate pressure while safeguarding the internal components from water, moisture, or other environmental contaminants.
While these membranes already offer a 98% reduction in PFAS and deliver reliable and effective solution for fluoropolymer-based membranes I’m proud on our entire team who diligently worked on upcoming launch of a 100% PFAS-free membrane, which will contribute significantly to safeguard the environment.
This breakthrough will allow for critical pressure compensation and device protection without the use of forever chemicals, marking a groundbreaking advancement in membrane technology.
As a team we remain committed to ongoing research and development, prioritizing further CO² reduction efforts with the goal of achieving carbon neutrality by the end of this decade.
At Oxyphen, our mission to create a safer, healthier, and more productive world fuels us every day. Our team is wholeheartedly dedicated to developing innovative solutions that protect lives globally by ensuring the consistent performance of safety-critical electronic devices and battery packs. Ifirmly believe that our focus on precision manufacturing and stringent process controls is the key to fulfilling our mission.
