At the Porex Life Sciences Institute, our agile team of scientists and engineers work together with business development, operations, and sourcing to bring new technologies to life and rapidly take them to market. We believe that our diverse group brings exceptional ideas to the surface, fosters creativity, and enables the strategic decision making and problem solving integral to a successful product development team.
The Porex Life Sciences Institute fills the manufacturing and commercialization gap in the standard innovation ecosystem. From idea generation to product launch, we examine macro trends, collect voice of customer, and partner with research networks, scientific organizations, and academic institutions to design products that will advance the field of life sciences. By challenging organizational silos and fostering an environment of trust where all ideas are considered, learning and ingenuity thrives. Once an idea is formed, we use competitive design-sprint tools such as Hackathons to bring new concepts to light with inputs from across the organization.
Our innovative solutions in life sciences harness and build upon the material science and porous technology expertise established over the past 60 years within Porex. The elaborate capillary structure of our porous bonded fiber provides fast and controlled delivery of biological samples that can enhance the performance and functionality of testing platforms. Sintered porous plastics are ideal when strength and design flexibility are key for product development with controlled pore size and pore volume. Our porous open-cell foam is manufactured without the help of catalysts creating a biocompatible, hypoallergenic product perfect for skin contact applications. With a network of over 140 locations across 28 countries, we leverage the strength of the Filtration Group to bring these innovations to life with unsurpassed speed and scale.
