Tubing plays an important role in medical devices ranging from catheters to IV sets to insulin pumps.

But choosing the right type of tubing for a given application can be challenging. There are numerous factors that must be weighed, including diameter, lubricity, and rigidity, to name a few.

A new MD+DI ebook sponsored by Optinova aims to help designers make the right choice when it comes to tubing.

Tubing and Extrusion in Medical Manufacturing offers advice on extrusion techniques, materials selection, and design considerations to ensure medical device designers end up the right type of tubing for the job. This ebook includes articles on the fundamentals of medical extrusion, coextruded medical tubing, neurovascular microcatheters, and balloon tubing.

If tubing is a component in your medical device, you should definitely check it out.

Meet tubing suppliers and other medtech industry vendors at the MEDevice San Diego Tech Showcase, September 1–2, 2015.
