SureVent hydrophobic and super-hydrophobic membranes are gamma stable and can be used for improved sanitization capabilities. The membranes are suitable for a broad range of liquid barrier and gas vent applications, including bag and tubing vents, vial vents, transducer protection, vent caps, insufflation, and gas monitoring anesthesia.
Used within medical devices, the SureVent polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UPE) membranes provide an economical alternative to traditional ethylene oxide sanitization treatments. Stabilized for exposure to gamma irradiation, the membranes maintain their physical properties after gamma sterilization. As a result, sterile packaging processes are replaced with a single radiation step to deliver enhanced productivity.
