Combining biomaterial science with fabric engineering

Secant Medical is to demonstrate its observations of the ways biomaterial science combined with fabric engineering can benefit minimally invasive devices at the MD&M East Exhibition and Conference in Philadelphia from 18-20 June 2013.

“Medical device manufacturers face a variety of design challenges, from minimising the delivery profile of a vascular graft to maintaining consistent porosity of a neurovascular stent. We partner with our clients to overcome these challenges by providing high-quality biomaterial components with versatile performance characteristics,” said Amy Woltman, business manager at Secant Medical.
