Wayne, PA Teleflex Medical OEM, a recognized global leader in catheters, introducers, and delivery systems, announces a proprietary, hydrophilic surface coating for polymer-based devices that are navigated through the vascular system. The coating performs favorably in terms of lubricity and extended durability when compared to other coatings on the market. It has proven biocompatibility and shelf-life stability. It also exhibits low particulate count in testing, and outstanding adhesion to the substrate material. The coating can be customized to optimize certain performance characteristics based on specific user needs.
Similar to other hydrophilic coatings, Teleflex Medical OEM’s coating may reduce the required insertion force which may result in improved control, placement, and tracking of a device. Applications for this surface technology include introducers, diagnostic catheters, balloon catheters, and components.
The coating is applied through a fully-automated process in a temperature and humidity controlled cleanroom. Teleflex Medical OEM’s extensive, in-house capabilities enable medical devices to be engineered, manufactured, and coated under one roof. This vertical integration can reduce the complexity, and the development and commercialization time often encountered in launching new devices.
