MEDICAL MURRAY STRENGTHS INCLUDE medical device catheter development for less invasive vascular, urologic, and surgical applications. We specialize in intricate designs requiring multi-layer/multi-lumen catheters with integration of various materials, control mechanisms, and embedded sensors.
Our development laboratory offers technologies and equipment to form, shape, attach, and test catheter tips with extensive geometric features. Our designs also integrate features for stent delivery, steering, drug delivery, and balloon dilation in sizes from 2Fr to 30Fr. Our core capabilities in catheter development and component design include:
- Multi-lumens (for inflation of balloons, wires, tip flexing, aspiration, stiffness control)
- Encapsulated electronic sensors
- Conductive wires
- Steerable design
- Marker bands
- Soft, atraumatic tips
- Hydrophilic coatings
- Insert molded components
- Luer connectors
Medical Murray has adopted Agile Methods for conducting the development of medical devices. Personal communication, iterative and incremental development, and progress measured by completed features are the main characteristics of this method. This process allows for greatly diminished risks for both parties, allows the product to be developed faster and results in a more robust design. Close customer involvement means that changes invariably encountered in new development can be integrated smoothly and quickly.
