Ensuring the Reliability of Disposable Syringes with Light-Cure Adhesives

Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of disposable medical syringe production involves permanently and safely attaching the stainless steel cannula to the plastic hub. This joint is critical to the safety of syringes found on hypodermic and biopsy needles, syringes, winged infusion sets, blood lancets, and a variety of other devices. In all these applications, poor hub-to-cannula assembly could result in leakage of bodily fluids and medication or catastrophic device failure, situations that could be dangerous to the patient and the medical professional. Mechanical failure of a syringe can cause painful insertion or extraction, seal failure during use, cancellation of a procedure, or other unsafe complications.

Laser Treatment Supports New Paper Electronics

By using lasers to treat graphene, Iowa State University researchers have found new ways to enable flexible, wearable, and low-cost electronics. Fabricating inkjet-printed, multi-layer graphene electric circuits and electrodes with a pulsed-laser process improves electrical conductivity without damaging paper, polymers, or other fragile printing surfaces.

Evaluation of Platelet Aggregation on Commonly-Used Blood-Contacting Medical Polymers

The blood compatibility of polymers used for medical devices which facilitate the movement or storage of blood is critical, particularly in devices whose applications where device-contacting blood will be re-introduced into a patient (dialyzer housings, storage vessels, IV components, etc.). Standard biocompatibility testing conducted in accordance with the ISO 10993 series of standards for these materials includes various tests for hemocompatibility1, including platelet interactions, but direct microscopic examination of platelet adhesion and activation is less common. This white paper presents the results of a scanning electron microscopic (SEM) examination of human platelet adhesion on polymeric materials, which shows that CYROLITE® materials may be less likely to aggregate and activate platelets than some other commonly-used blood-contacting materials.
