Event Detail:

The medical device industry is under exceptional economic pressure with the advent of the medical device tax and the trend by insurers to limit the amount to be paid for specific hospital procedures. At the same time, the manufacturing process is among the most highly regulated in the world to ensure patient safety, so the cost pressure must be balanced against the highest quality standards.

Polymers can replace metals in many situations and reduce costs by molding one part instead of multiple components. The plastics industry offers advice on material selection, properties and processing to medical device designers. Many companies have registered polymers with the FDA in a Drug Master File, to assist with the approval process. However, a lot of resin suppliers limit the use of their materials in medical and pharma applications and this is another factor to consider. This restriction on polymer selection has led to many medical manufacturers linking up with research institutes to develop their own new material supplies. Healthcare is improving all the time and the innovations need new plastics and elastomers with appropriate properties.

Medical Grade Polymers 2013 brings together medical device manufacturers and polymer suppliers, and aims to cover all aspects from innovative devices to biocompatibility testing. Experts in medical device design, manufacture and testing along with polymer producers and manufacturing machinery suppliers attend these events to discuss the latest developments in markets, technical and regulatory issues, and production technology.
