Get Your Device To Market Fast...EPIC Medtec™ Centers

Welcome To Device Development Reimagined
You have a great idea for a medical device. You know what the device needs to do. But your R&D resources are involved with other projects; or you may need insight or unbiased opinion of a device’s design for manufacturability. Working together at one of our EPIC Medtec™ Centers (Engineering, Prototyping, Innovation, Collaboration), we can identify challenges and find answers, while controlling concept development and production costs.

We start by learning everything we can about your device concept and its application. Then launch into our proprietary, multi-stage IDEA Medtec™ Process (Innovation, Development, Engineering Accelerator) that incorporates your requirements early in the concept stage and maintains focus on design for manufacturability.

Ready to go into production? We can handle that too. With a global network of state-of-the-industry facilities, we provide extensive, vertically-integrated, manufacturing capabilities.

Think of Us as an Extension of Your R&D Team
Our EPIC Medtec™ Centers provide the help you need to reduce project risk and build a device using proven, in-house capability platforms. You will work directly with our multi-disciplinary team of engineers, material and polymer experts, and skilled technicians. Whatever the project demands, we have a spectrum of world class talent to draw from. Share ideas. Brainstorm out-of-the-box solutions. Question assumptions. Develop demonstrative prototypes. Gather feedback. It is a total collaborative process.

Our expert team is ready to provide support when you need it the most. We will work with you during any or all stages of the device development process.

The result: Product concepts that target your well-understood objectives, challenges, and application requirements. All developed with a focus on its manufacturability and a solid understanding of the limits of the core technologies being used to manufacture it.

New Suture Technology May Reduce Tissue Strangulation

Teleflex Medical OEM, a global leader in specialized sutures, braids, and fibers, announces an innovative suture technology: Force Fiber Fusion® Suture. This “two-in- one” construct transitions from round suture to a flat braid center segment and back to round suture. It has a broader footprint and offers a more uniform distribution of pressure than similar suture. This may reduce tissue strangulation and a “cutting effect” in applications where tissue pull-through may be a concern.

Prepared from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), Force Fiber Fusion® Suture is softer and more pliable than similar products on the market.** The suture also is strong, durable, and lubricious. Fusion®  Suture is braided using a proprietary, continuous process that creates seamless transitions between each segment. Don’t confuse it with look-alike products that are simply a flat segment “sewn” onto two round sutures.

Compared to similar suture* on the market, Force Fiber Fusion® Suture has a lower knot profile and an average knot height that is ¼ the size. In addition, the height of Fusion™ Suture’s flat center section is 38% thinner than similar products. Force Fiber Fusion® Suture is cleared in the USA for approximation and/or ligation of soft tissue, including the use of allograft tissue for orthopedic procedures. It is offered in USP suture sizes 1 to 5 and a wide selection of color and pattern options. Widths, lengths, and patterns can be customized to meet specific requirements.

New Hydrophilic Coating Technology from Teleflex Medical OEM

Teleflex Medical OEM, a recognized global leader in catheters, introducers, and delivery systems, announces a proprietary, hydrophilic surface coating for polymer-based devices that are navigated through the vascular system. The coating performs favorably in terms of lubricity and extended durability when compared to other coatings on the market. It has proven biocompatibility and shelf-life stability. It also exhibits low particulate count in testing, and outstanding adhesion to the substrate material. The coating can be customized to optimize certain performance characteristics based on specific user needs.

Similar to other hydrophilic coatings, Teleflex Medical OEM’s coating may reduce the required insertion force which may result in improved control, placement, and tracking of a device. Applications for this surface technology include introducers, diagnostic catheters, balloon catheters, and components.

The coating is applied through a fully-automated process in a temperature and humidity controlled cleanroom. Teleflex Medical OEM’s extensive, in-house capabilities enable medical devices to be engineered, manufactured, and coated under one roof. This vertical integration can reduce the complexity, and the development and commercialization time often encountered in launching new devices.

Innovative Braiding Technology Unveiled By Teleflex Medical OEM

Teleflex Medical OEM, a global leader in custom-engineered sutures, today announced an advanced braiding technology that can divide a suture into multiple end branches or integrate several “loops” within the strand. This continuous braiding process can produce variations of complex, divided segments at the end of a suture, or between singular round or flat tape segments. The need for expensive and time-intensive manual sewing is eliminated.

The braiding technology allows for a broad range of configurations that are expected to be used in orthopedic applications where two sutures are presently used for fixation.

At this time, the furcated braiding process can be used to customize Teleflex Medical OEM’s high-strength Force Fiber® OrthoTape® Braid, a flat tape, and to Force Fiber Fusion® Suture, a product that transitions from round suture to a flat center and back to round suture in one seamless strand.

Teleflex Medical OEM Opens Two EPIC Medtec™ Centers

Teleflex Medical OEM, a leading provider of medical device development and manufacturing services, announces two state-of-the-art EPIC Medtec™ Centers located in Mansfield, Massachusetts and Maple Grove, Minnesota. These facilities bring together expert engineering talent and extensive, integrated capabilities to enable clients to develop market-ready devices, reduce technical risk, and get the devices to market faster. Most device development can be accomplished in a few days instead of the weeks, months, or years required by traditional methods.

The EPIC Medtec™ Center (Engineering, Prototyping, Innovation, Collaboration) in Mansfield focuses on the development of sutures and performance fibers, while the Maple Grove center is dedicated to catheter and access device innovation. Teleflex Medical OEM already operates a third EPIC Medtec™ Center, focused on catheter and access devices, in Limerick, Ireland.

The facilities utilize the multi-stage IDEA Medtec™ Process (Innovation, Development, Engineering, Accelerator) that incorporates a client’s requirements into a device. New product ideas can be explored, prototyped, and tested on-site. Design for manufacturability is emphasized at each step of the process. Guess work is virtually eliminated since decision-making is data-driven via Teleflex Medical OEM’s proprietary analytic tools.

The smartly configured floorplans of the EPIC Medtec™ Centers were carefully planned to promote innovation in a collaborative environment. Everything is in place to move a device from concept to production-ready device. There are immersion labs for concept development, design engineering, and demonstrative prototyping and testing. Amenities such as a video conferencing center and 3D printing studio are also available.
