The EcoMet 250 grinder-polisher is designed to meet medical industry needs. This product offers options for preparing samples in single or central force modes when combined with an AutoMet 250 power head.
This polyurethane encapsulant, UR3005, exhibits very low moisture absorption and high elongation at low temperatures. A polybutadiene modified polyurethane, it has excellent moisture resistance with water pickup of less than 1% during immersion at 60°C.
This range of stock shapes made of Zeniva PEEK (polyetheretherketone) is one of four polymers that comprise the company's family of Solviva Biomaterials being offered for use in implantable medical devices.
Demron-M is a radiopaque, nano-polymeric compound fused between fabric layers and manufactured into medical garments that provide total radiation protection. It replaces traditional lead garments, which are dense, inflexible, and prone to cracking.
CCFLs powered by DC-AC inverters have been dominant in medical patient monitors, but LED BLUs are on the horizon and gaining ground in terms of usage. The benefits of each differ across many areas, including functionality, reliability, and cost.
Overcoming typical TPU processing problems involving moisture and temperature can be a challenge when fabricating components or extruding tubing for medical devices. This article offers several tips to address these common concerns.
A solid design can go a long way in the success of a product. Similarly, a solidly designed software solution that provides a true user-friendly experience can also lead to a very successful product.
Software is making its way into a variety of medical devices to help offer patients a higher degree of effectiveness from these devices.
Many systems require a variety of different capabilities, such as air, fluid, and electronics, to be connected to a tool. As such, device manufacturers must ensure that each element is kept completely separate from each other. This can be especially challenging at the connection point.
By Rob Wilkinson Here's the bottom line up front-platinum-cured silicone is the exceptional choice for medical, pharmaceutical, and biotech tubing applications, as well as medical devices that require extended contact with tissues and bodily fluids.
The Project: Connect the various subsystems of a left ventricular assist system with a solution that offers reliability and durability. The Solution: Utilize cable assemblies that enable easy, but not accidental, disconnects, and provide a comfortable feel for patients.
OSRAM Opto Semiconductors is providing, for the first time, thermal models for computing different LED designs as downloads. In addition to electrical, mechanical, and optical data, a compact model for Flotherm software is now permanently available for calculating thermal behavior.
