The World’s First Virus-Killing Filter Treatment

Dr. Filter is the simple, safe, cost-effective whole-building solution that targets and kills COVID-19, as well as other viruses and emerging pathogens.

Dr. Filter was developed by ThruPore Technologies, an innovative materials company that originally gained prominence for its unique carbon manufacturing platform.

ThruPore was spun out of The University of Alabama in 2012. In 2014, ThruPore re-located its’ headquarters to New Castle, DE, and has been awarded over $1.7 MM from the National Science Foundation to develop various technologies. In addition to creating Dr. Filter, ThruPore has developed over 50 customized catalysts for various chemical processes over the last 3 years.


The Dr. Filter team is made up of a dedicated group of scientists and business leaders committed to helping you provide a safe and virus-free environment for your tenants and workers.
