Bayer MaterialScience LLC has developed a new range of colors for medical applications.
The Rx Medical line, which is based on Leda-compounding color technology, is compliant with the biocompatibility standard of ISO 10993-1. The line allows new color choices beyond the beige and white chosen for most medical applications.
The new family includes four Makrolon polycarbonate resins that can be used for drug-delivery devices and components of surgical instruments, said the Pittsburgh firm.
The main Rx Medical colors are Electro, medium blue tempered with gray; First Aid, a light brown dabbling in gray; Stat, a red/purple/gray hybrid, and X-Ray, white tinted with a hint of gray.
