Material Selection

image-materialselection.jpg
The material selection process is a key factor to long term medical device success.

When developing a medical device, selecting the proper materials requires an understanding of the biological, physical, and chemical characteristics needed. Our material selection process takes into account the entire lifecycle of a product including functional performance, processing limitations, environmental stability and cost parameters. 

There are also considerations and complexities to go along with each choice that need to be factored into the product design, development, and manufacturing process. Additional key aspects to consider in the selection process are:

  • Required performance characteristics
  • Molding or processing capabilities
  • Documented and biocompatiblity of materials
  • Willingness of supplier to sell raw materials for application
  • Sterilization interaction
  • Shelf life durability
