Developing a Custom Material for Trocar Seal Surgical Applications
The elastomer material for a customer’s new trocar surgical application was catching on material during insertion, often tearing the seal. They turned to our advanced materials group (AMG) team to create a material that solved this primary concern. See how our AMG team solved the problem and helped to make the trocar a superior solution for physicians.
New Material Formulation Leads to Seal for Point-of-Care Diagnostics
Our team was part of the rapid response to urgent COVID-19 patient needs. We created a new material formulation for a point-of-care medical diagnostics seal that meets strict chemical and mechanical requirements.
A large medical technology company aimed to upgrade its medical device solution used primarily to cut and cauterize tissue in minimally invasive surgeries.
