HOTLINECorrugations Make Kink-Prone Tubing Flexible
The product retains the chemical and electrical properties of straight-walled tubing
Corrugated FEP tubing is suitable for those applications in which the special properties of fluoropolymer are needed and flexibility is also required. Corrtef, which was developed
by NewAge Industries (Southampton, PA) is useful in situations in which tubing must bend around or through machinery, equipment, or structures, or in applications where tubing extension and compression are repeated.
Marking System Improves Identification of Medical Device Components
Customized markings on devices reduce the possibility of tampering and error
In compliance with FDA regulations mandating security measures for pharmaceutical and medical products used in hospitals, a cold-laser marking system improves the identification of tablets, capsules, and medical device components.
Tri-Star Technologies (El Segundo, CA) offers the M-100L-M series, a permanent marking system to eliminate the possibility of tampering and reduce the chance of error.
Bioreactor Advances Functional Tissue Engineering
Device may accelerate development of tissue-engineered products
Tissue-engineered products are expected to play a leading role in cardiovascular and orthopedic tissue repair and replacement.
EnduraTec (Minneapolis) has developed what it believes is the first commercially available intelligent bioreactor for functional tissue engineering.
