Highly reliable and sterile venting solutions
Slider

When a customer is seeking a highly reliable and stable venting solution, Oxyphen is the right partner. Our track-etched membranes not only enable a consistent air flow and high protection levels, but also allow for the most common sterilization methods such as Gamma and X-ray sterilization in closed containers. Our precise control of the pore size allows the usage of the membrane as sterile venting application.

Oxyphen solves customer-specific challenges with high-quality membranes with reliable parameters. To get excellent mounting, our membranes can be assembled using either ultrasonic welding or adhesive technologies.

Sterile venting for IV solution

Sterile venting for IV solution

The IV solution requires a sterile venting solution to keep the drug delivery to patients safe. In this specific case, the 0.2 micron pore size membrane is used and is mounted to the application by ultrasonic welding. The complete assembly is afterwards sterilized easily and reliable by Gamma irradiation.
