Track-etched membranes are a porous system that consists of a thin polymer foil and channels from a surface to another. Latent ion tracks result from the passage of swift ions through the solid substances and are often etched very selectively. Due to the conical, cylindrical, or other shape channels can be achieved.
Track membrane technologies are used for industrial applications in the track etching technique. Track-etch membranes have various advantages in the conventional membranes reason being the precisely determined structure. The pore size, density, and shape vary with the need for transport and are individually managed when the production is going on. The principal production stage involved in the track-etched membranes is the irradiation of ions of the polymer film. Ions can help in the penetration of the polymer film, which concludes in the ionization and electrons excitement. These are followed by the remaining polymer chains and are etched after the suitable chemicals which can be removed small-sized particles through diffusion.
Track etched membranes are been utilized for purification of drugs and various vaccines, clarification of fluids, bioassays, environmental analysis, microscopy, and also to test the bacterial quality control of food and water. Track etched membranes can also be used to clean rooms, water purification, and also for the analytical systems.
COVID-19 scenario analysis:
Pharmaceutical and biotech companies together with governments around the globe are working to address the COVID-19 outbreak, from supporting the development of vaccines to planning for medicines supply chain challenges. Currently, around 115 vaccine candidates and 155 molecules are in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine have witnessed a dramatic surge in demand for the management of COVID-19. Such high demand for these drugs has presented huge opportunities for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs, as many developed countries are short of these drugs. Owing to the demand for vaccine and treatment drugs for COVID-19, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry is expected to witness a significant growth in the future.
Owing to such factors, COVID 19 is expected to have a significant impact on the Track etched Membrane market.
