Applied Biomimetic A/S, a pioneer in the development of protein-based biomimetic membranes and other filtration platforms, announces the debut of its high performance ultrafiltration (UF) membrane platform, with its launch at the 2016 Membrane Technology Forum in Minneapolis, MN.

Applied Biomimetic developed its UF technology as part of a quest to create a high performance substrate for protein functionality.

Vice President William Harvey remarked: "Along the way of advancing our biomimetic protein science, we found it necessary to avoid pitfalls of conventional substrate membranes which do not adequately integrate with proteins and perform at the level we needed. What we developed is a platform of highly permeable and very low energy membranes based on both a new chemical foundation and new manufacturing methods. And we decided the time is right, and the market need is real for UF membranes with this performance profile."

The membrane field trials began earlier this year with end users and OEMs, and exhibited high performance results under real world feed conditions. The membranes are available in both plate and frame and spiral element configurations.

CEO Steen Sondergaard Nissen, added: "Our UF technology will serve as a launch point for a broad spectrum of membranes, both with and without biomimetic proteins. After so many years in the making, and through the hard work executed by our team of scientists to challenge conventional wisdom, we are excited to move from a research phase to the commercialization phase of our company."
