Conference on the development of medical tubes and catheters

Novoplast Schlauchtechnik and Fleima-Plastic at the Medical Tubing in Cologne

Novoplast Schlauchtechnik and Fleima-Plastic, the two medical technology brands of the Masterflex Group, will be taking part in Medical Tubing in Cologne from June 19 to 20. The conference provided by Applied Market Information Ltd. (AMI) informs about the latest developments in the design of medical tubes and catheters.

Tubes and catheters play a crucial role in a variety of medical applications.

Martin Oye, Sales Director Medical Products at the Masterflex Group: "Demand is rising sharply due to the ageing population and the trend towards less invasive medical procedures. However, this is also accompanied by increased performance requirements for the materials and their processing.

Leading experts will discuss selection criteria and procedures, the latest developments in polymers for medical tubing and catheters, standards and certification requirements, improvement of important properties such as flexibility, clarity, buckling resistance, dimensional stability or biocompatibility, advances in the development of extrusion dies for complex medical tubing configurations and optimization of extrusion lines for faster and higher quality production of medical tubing.

In addition, the results of new research and development work in this market, monitoring the quality and consistency of medical tubing and case studies on the development and production of medical tubing will be presented.

In addition to demanding presentations, the conference offers excellent networking and exchange opportunities with key players in the entire medical tubing supply chain.
