biocompatible solutions for optimized performance
When it comes to medical devices biocompatibility, compliance, and patient safety are the key requirements. Whether it is a hemocompatible surface technology, a customizable adhesive and potting compound, or a phthalate-free plasticizer, aurorium helps medical device customers optimize device performance and improve manufacturing efficiency. Backed by regulatory and application experts, aurorium solutions are approved by global regulatory bodies and are used by leading medical device manufacturers worldwide.
A clinically proven, time-tested, truly multifunctional surface technology, PC Technology™ imparts to the device surface antithrombotic, anti-inflammatory, hydrophilic, and antimicrobial properties that reduce biofilm formation and subsequent fouling and encrustation.learn more
Citroflex™ B-6 phthalate-free plasticizer offers excellent performance in medical PVC plastics formulations. With a clean toxicological profile, Citroflex B-6 presents a proven, field-tested alternative to traditional DEHP plasticizers.learn more
Biothane™ Polyurethane Systems can be custom formulated to provide the optimum pot life, cure time, strength, and flexibility required to fit the unique needs of catheters and specialty medical device assembly processes.learn more
4,4′-Dichlorodiphenyl Sulfone (DCDPS), is a monomer used for polymerization into the production of polysulfones (PES). High-performance sulfones are categorized by high transparency and high-temperature performance. Sulfones are used as replacements for metals and glass in medical products.
Electrophysiology (EP) studies are done to measure the electrical activity of the heart and to diagnose arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm. To perform the test, electrophysiology catheters are inserted into large blood vessels (neck and groin), that then enter the heart. EP catheters must be designed to enable safe and effective use within this highly sensitive environment. Materials used in EP catheter construction are carefully selected to optimize their electrical and mechanical properties. Meeting these mechanical demands and more, Biothane™ Polyurethane Sealant Systems are biocompatible and customizable.
When it comes to plastics for medical devices, softness, flexibility, and patient safety are the key attributes. Whether ensuring optimum patient comfort for the tubing that interacts with the body or providing safe storage and transportation of blood and its components, plasticizers play a crucial role. Citroflex™ B-6 Plasticizer has low extractability into lipid media, making it particularly useful for blood bags and related products. It nearly duplicates the properties of diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP).
Medical devices routinely used in blood-contact procedures play a very important role in minimizing the risk of adverse reactions. PC Technology™ offers a truly multifunctional, surface technology to make medical devices more biocompatible. A clinically proven, time- tested, truly multifunctional surface technology, PC Technology imparts to the device surface antithrombotic, anti-inflammatory, hydrophilic, and antimicrobial properties that reduce biofilm formation and subsequent fouling and encrustation.
