Earning the trust of so many medical companies has required not just the technology, but also an unwavering commitment to a clean molding environment and defect-free molding to protect the safety of patients and medical professionals. In addition to our dedicated class 10,000 mobile clean rooms, our state-of-the art manufacturing facility has been measured at approximately 50,000, half-micron particulates (.0005 µm) per cubic foot.
This micro-molded tip is used in IVF (in vitro fertilization) applications for the transfer of embryonic cells. The hole in the tip measures justin diameter.
A micro-molded comb used for suturing during cardiac surgery. This part is required to be micro molded in a DNA/RNA free environment and is made from POM material with only a +/- 5 micron tolerance.
This 0.775mm-wide POM gear, with just 85 microns between the teeth, controls the blade used in cataract surgery. It is part of a unique new single-use, pre-sterilized, cataract surgical device from Eye Care and Cure (ECC) of Tucson, AZ, that was developed to bring cataract surgery to small facilities, third-world countries and other remote locales.
An Ultem barb stop, micro-molded at, that is used in US Endoscopy’s iSnare® system for the injection of media (drugs, dye, cleansing solution) and removal of gastrointestinal polyps. As seen in the photo, the barb stop has two, finely barbed legs and a small hole at the top.
