Building on Market-Leading Components
Our approach to catheter-based devices builds on our deep expertise and experience with complex components, including:
- Custom medical balloons
- Complex extrusions
- Specialized medical tubing
- Reinforced shafts
Specialized Tubing Expertise
Many catheter assemblies need specialized tubing to support complex performance requirements, like guidewire tracking, fluid flow, passage of other devices, and more. Our advanced extrusion and specialized medical tubing capabilities provide solutions for your catheter design challenges, including multi-layer tubing, polyimide tubing, PTFE tubing, and reinforced tubing. We also offer polymer solution casting, which allows you to build multiple performance characteristics into a single-piece construction. Contact us to learn more about our medical tubing offering.
We've made strategic investments to expand our capabilities, so we now offer a wide range of technologies from subassemblies to finished devices. Our team of 250+ dedicated, specialized catheter engineers and technicians can manage projects from concept to prototype, through FDA approval and full-scale manufacturing. Our catheter capabilities include:
- Over-the-wire catheters
- Rapid exchange (RX) catheters
- Fixed-wire catheters
Single-Source Solution for Catheters and Coatings
Nordson MEDICAL has partnered with DSM, a global leader in biomedical materials, to offer you the option of integrating the development, testing, and application of hydrophilic lubricious coatings into the catheter manufacturing process.
With Nordson MEDICAL as your single-source partner, there's no need to transfer finished devices to another supplier for development and coating application services. This streamlines your supply chain and saves time and cost.
These best-in-class coatings:
- Facilitate catheter maneuverability and enhance patient comfort
- Are UV-cured for consistent quality and uniformity
- Can be customized to meet specific device requirements
