Managing how a material can affect a device’s success starts with a strong, collaborative relationship with your materials supplier, which can help prevent a myriad of issues throughout the development of medical devices.
When a device is implanted in a human body, there is always a distinct reaction of the body’s immune system, often resulting in a thick layer of scar tissue surrounding the implant. With device miniaturization and by providing a ‘biomimetic’ device encapsulation, this body reaction will be reduced.
The most successful medical device companies have the same characteristic in common: They’re cross-functional. Whether it be the device design and development activities or quality and regulatory affairs, every operation works together to produce and market medical devices that improve patients’ lives.
Both paper and digital paper are outdated approaches to medical device quality management.
This complimentary event will give attendees insights on the market landscape and potential areas of opportunity.
Fine thin metal laser cutting is an ideal technology for the specialized cutting requirements found in the manufacturing of medical tube tools and components, which require an array of cut features with sharp edges, contours, and patterns within edges. From surgical instruments used in cutting and biopsy, to needles containing unusual tips and side wall openings, to puzzle chain linkages for flexible endoscopes, laser cutting provides higher precision, quality, and speed than traditionally used cutting t…
Prototyping is expensive. But creative construction and use of prototypes can dramatically improve the development process and save the development team a significant amount of time and money.
