OxyDisc® Membrane Discs

Easy Assembly of Die-Cut Hydrophobic & Hydrophilic Membranes

OxyDisc® die-cut membrane discs can be easily mounted and produced using either hydrophobic or hydrophilic membranes for any filtration or venting application. 

The discs can be manufactured on a liner for use in a high-speed processing system or individually in special blister packaging. While offered in standard sizes, customized shapes and sizes can be provided. Both of Oxyphen’s membrane technologies, UNIQUE-MEM® and ROTRAC®, are available in this disc format.
