AMI Medical Tubing 2016
BTG Labs will host a booth and present at the Applied Marked Information (AMI) Medical Tubing Conference September 13-14, 2016. The event will take place in Crowne Plaza Boston-Woburn, Woburn, Massachusetts. This international event displays the latest in polymeric medical tubing and catheters, covering designs, materials, production and applications. The conference will host discussions on the latest standards and certification requirements. This field of medical device manufacturing is growing and evolving rapidly along with the use of polymers in medical tubing.
BTG Labs and the Surface Properties of Medical Tubing
BTG Labs will present on the sensitive and complex surface properties of medical tubing such as wettability, adhesion, antithrombogenicity, and biocompatibility. These properties depend on the chemical composition and structure of the uppermost 2-3 nanometers of the material. Thus, monitoring and managing these properties is crucial in manufacturing. This can be challenging as surface monitoring devices such as total reflectance infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) can be impractical to employ on the manufacturing floor. BTG Labs will discuss the Surface Analyst™ and ways in which it can be utilized to monitor these minute surfaces accurately and sensitively on the factory floor.
BTG Labs’ Booth
The BTG Labs booth will feature the Surface Analyst: the solution for monitoring surfaces on a sensitive and highly accurate level. The field of medical tubing necessitates high regulation in instrument manufacturing. The BTG Labs booth will demonstrate ways in which the Surface Analyst can contribute to accuracy and consistency in managing and monitoring surfaces and meeting surface requirements.
Attend the BTG Labs’ presentation and visit the booth for discussions and demonstrations on how the Surface Analyst can assist and improve the manufacture and development of medical tubing.
