Porous polymers are the unknown science behind many of the products used in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. From diagnostic tests to UV disinfection chambers and countless other applications, the different types and functions of porous polymers can be used to improve product performance and flatten the COVID-19 curve.
Perfect for design and manufacturing engineers who have either a potential product concept or need to improve an existing product, this webinar will explore the science behind specific applications being used to flatten the COVID-19 curve and how to pick the materials most suitable for your design needs. Specifically, the following topics will be addressed and explored.
Diagnostic testing components recommended by the CDC test protocol for COVID-19 sample collection and analysis
Diagnostic testing components approved or in process with FDA to allow patient testing at the point of care
Microporous PTFE solutions for UV reaction chambers to increase disinfection
Foam solutions for N95 masks and other personal protection equipment (PPE)
Infection prevention solutions for use in hospitals to prevent healthcare-associated infections of frontline healthcare workers and patients
Ventilator component solutions that improve the safety, performance and patient outcomes of ventilator systems
Filtration, wicking and venting solutions across blood management and drug delivery devices

This webinar will bring together several members of industry to discuss the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the medical device manufacturing supply chain. The panel will engage in a roundtable-style discussion to determine what damage has already been done, and what they expect in the months or even years ahead. Will the industry have a return to normalcy soon after the dust settles or will the effects of this linger for quite some time? Find out what these individuals foresee and pose your own questions to them to get their insights.

Porous polymers are the unknown science inside many of the products we use every day, providing key functionalities to products as diverse as coloring markers and diagnostic tests. Join Avi Robbins, Porex vice president of product development and R&D, as he helps attendees explore how porous polymers can improve product performance across diverse healthcare applications from medical devices to diagnostics to wound care - and help them achieve market differentiation.
Perfect for design and manufacturing engineers who either have a potential product concept or need to fix a problem with an existing product, this webinar will explore the science behind porous polymers and how to select the right type of material for your application. Attendees will learn about the differences between the three core technologies of porous polymers – sintered particles, bonded fiber, and open-cell foam – and how they are used inside finished products in the healthcare industry to absorb, apply, diffuse, filter, vent, or wick. Achieving each of these functionalities requires different technical considerations for both designing and assembling the porous component into the final product.
By understanding more about the science behind each type of porous polymer and functionality, engineers will learn where porous polymers can play in various applications and what to consider when designing their products in order to determine the best solution.
