Asahi Kasei Medical, a leader in virus filtration, is strengthening its production capacity for hydrophilic PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) hollow fiber membranes for Planova BioEX filters at its spinning mill in Oita, Japan. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the demand for planova filters needed for the development and mass production of anti-coronavirus agents.

Asahi Kasei Medical will use state-of-the-art technology to double the spinning production capacity of this site. Capacity growth is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Planova N series filters using cellulose hollow fiber membranes are operating safely at all six existing factories, including the spinning factory completed in Miyazaki City in 2019, and are responding to growing global demand. ..
