Copied to clipboard

Metric Medical Devices, Inc. needed a high-strength, biocompatible polycarbonate to house their Super Staple™ Classic bone fixation device, which contributes to faster medical procedures and helps speed patient recovery. We recommended medical grade Makrolon® Rx2530.

Task

Provide a polycarbonate that withstands considerable force

Metric Medical Devices, Inc. was looking for a material to house their Super Staple™ Classic, a stapling device that provides compression force to improve bone healing. According to Metric, the device also reduces complications and the associated healthcare costs.
Challenge

Ensure material matches all medical industry needs

To ensure optimum convenience and cost savings for the medical profession, the Super Staple™ Classic needed to include a complete procedure kit that was strong, transparent and biocompatible, as well as sterile and disposable.
Solution

A high-performance material that meets the highest standards

We proposed Makrolon® Rx2530 for the housing of the Super Staple™ Classic bone fixation device - because this medical-grade polycarbonate offers just the high strength, temperature stability, clarity and biocompatibility our customer needed. In addition to assisting Metric Medical Devices with material selection, we conducted tests to demonstrate the material’s compliance with ISO-10993-1 and U.S. Federal Drug Administration biocompatibility guidelines.

  • Biocompatible: Meets the necessary ISO 10993-1 test requirements.
  • Heat resistant: Suitable for superheated steam sterilization up to 143 °C.
  • Ultra-tough: Material is exceptionally durable and impact resistant.
