Whether you require PTFE lined, multiple durometer, variable shaft diameter, imbedded marker bands, or thin wall construction, Teleflex Medical OEM should be your outsourcing partner for microcatheters. We have the experience and expertise to meet your rigorous specifications. Our microcatheters are available with flat or round wire, and coil reinforced configurations. Flat wire is generally used for thin-walled applications where "anti-kink" performance is critical. Coiled shafts are more flexible, but they do not have the same torque capabilities as a braided shaft.
Full range of material tensile strengths are available from annealed to full hard.
Braid wire density is described as picks per inch (PPI), which is the number of wire crossovers per inch of shaft. Depending upon wire and tube sizes, Teleflex Medical OEM can supply up to 250 PPI.
