Polyzen Inc., a contract development and manufacturing company producing polymer-based components and assemblies for Class I, II, and III medical devices, is developing raw materials and products for protecting healthcare workers. For instance, the team has developed medical-grade, personal protective gloves offering leak, puncture, abrasion, and chemical resistance. The gloves could also be used in critical environments that require barrier protection, the company explained in a news release.
“We are grateful to be considered an essential manufacturer for our existing medical device customers, and believe it is our ethical and professional duty to help during this dire need. We are humbled and ready to work hard to save lives,” said Sunil Inamdar, Polyzen CTO, in the release. The company is also working with other manufacturers, universities, and the state of North Carolina on products such as face shields, face masks, ventilator bags and balloons, bed tents for patient transport, and other single-use disposables to assist in protection and sterility.
