Medical procedures and therapies are often faced by the same challenge: accurately measuring and controlling lowest flow rates down to the microliter per hour range. In most of these cases the outcome of the therapy, as well as the well-being or even the survival of the patient strongly rely on the reliable a
Proximal flow sensors are widely used in respiratory devices for intubated patients and non-invasive ventilation patients in hospitals, home care situations and emergency rooms. With applications ranging from neonatal to adult care, the associated requirements for proximal flow sensors are both diverse and ch
Measuring gas flow in applications requiring high precision and cost-efficiency is a challenge. Experience in
recent years has shown that microthermal flow sensors are superior to other technologies.
Sensor technology takes infusion pumps to the next level by making failure detection reliable, even for infiltration.
Designed to mitigate the worst effects of fires, fire retardant materials play a particularly important role in aircraft construction. Used in aircraft, epoxies and silicones must maintain their primary role as adhesives or coatings while exhibiting resistance to heat and flame in accordance with government a
Die attach adhesives serve a vital role in semi-conductor assembly, manufacturing and throughout the product life cycle. In this white paper, learn how they facilitate assembly and about the application process. Find out why thin bond lines are so important for product life cycle. Bond strength is only one, a
The combination of increasingly complex assemblies and exacting quality requirements is compelling design engineers to be extremely diligent when selecting materials for the assembly of medical electronic devices. In this white paper, we explore various polymer chemistries and what the different families of c
With its outstanding light transmission properties and optical clarity, Master Bond UV15 is widely used for a variety of bonding, coating and sealing applications in the optical, electronic and optoelectronic industries. In fact, it has been effectively used by RMIT University, the University of Texas at Aust
A Study of Analytical & Clinical Interference in Porous Laboratory Components
getting smaller and more complex. As a result, test access points often compete
with components for real estate during the PCB layout process. PCB layout
designers and design engineering teams who are siloed from manufacturing
operations often assume that flying probe test or functional tests
As a society, we rely on our electronic devices and therefore batteries more than ever before. Small electronic devices, depending on their function, can improve communication, enhance quality of life, contribute to physical well-being, and generally provide entertainment, safety and security. However, the li
Even the simplest medical cable assembly projects contain numerous engineering considerations. And among the most complex applications, the quantity of requirements can skyrocket. Factors such as diameter, construction, material, coating, length, and tolerance are only a few of the often-mountainous specifica
Components—specifically springs used for device activation and needle retraction—play a key role in creating a flexible design. Pharma and biopharma OEMS need to engage spring suppliers at the very onset of new device planning.
A demanding application requires a custom spring solution engineered for consistent performance. From critical medical instruments, pharmaceutical delivery systems, robotic platforms, orthopedic implants or other system designs, reliability is the only option.
Understand the key areas that should be included in your vendor evaluation before you entrust your valuable project to a third party.
On January 14, 2020, medical device manufacturers that use Windows® 7 in their devices face a critical, expensive deadline. Windows 7 support is set to expire on that day. Millions of devices in the field run on Windows, and without upgrades, they are security risks. System upgrades are needed to maintain
This white paper offers solutions to solve these medical device upgrade needs and freedom from the upgrade cycle.
What you will learn:
- Why medical device OEMs are facing a huge problem in terms of both cost and complexity
- Different options for meeting upgrade needs in
Intellectual property (IP) is the core of competitive
advantage. When products are outsourced, the contract manufacturer performing
the final assembly typically has access to the complete documentation package
for the products they build. Where are the checks and balances? How can be
certain your c
When outsourcing is discussed, the conversation often
centers on its benefits in terms of labor cost reduction. The reality is that
labor cost reduction is often only the tip of the iceberg in terms of
outsourcing benefits. That said, there are differences in contract

Innovation in extrusion technology is opening the door to
enhanced product functionality and competitiveness. Forefront Medical Technology, a specialty
contract manufacturer with a focus in disposable diagnostic, drug delivery
systems and specialty medical
devices has a track record in leveraging a
