Material solutions for the Medical Industry
In the highly regulated Medical industry, the selection of materials is paramount, with stringent requirements such as USP Class 6 and ISO 10993 biocompatibility for base resins and adherence to quality management systems under ISO 13485, traceability, and risk association. These criteria extend to both Life Science Grade (LSG) and Implantable materials.
When examining the diverse landscape of the Medical sector, it can be categorized into three primary product groups:
- Materials for 24 Hours - Skin and Body Tissue: These materials are intended for short-term use, primarily in contact with skin and body tissues.
- Materials for Under 30 Days - Tissue and Fluid: This category encompasses Regulatory Class II medical devices and medium-risk products, including items like forceps, ventilators, and diagnostic devices.
- Materials for Over 30 Days - Implantable: Here, we enter the realm of Regulatory Class III Medical devices and high-risk products, such as medical implants and orthopedic devices that are surgically placed within the body.
