Market Applications

Medical devices in these markets that are coated with HYDAK® coatings platform include but are not limited to: Guidewires, Catheters, Microcatheters, Delivery Systems, Introducer Sheaths, Access Systems and IOL Cartridges.

HYDAK coatings are designed for application on a wide range of devices in the Neurovascular, Cardiovascular, Peripheral and Ophthalmic markets.

neuro

Neurovascular Device Coatings

Due to the minute vasculature and remote anatomies involved in the development of neurovascular devices, it is essential to have a lubricious, low-friction surface. Neurovascular devices can be very delicate, so any coatings must be able to allow the device to reach the area of interest, with unquestioned durability and extremely low particulate counts.

Neurovascular devices are a specialty at Biocoat; we have extensive experience in coating all types of devices, including:

  • Percutaneous Thrombectomy Devices
  • Neurovascular Thrombectomy Devices
  • Embolectomy Balloon Catheters
  • OTW Microcatheters
  • Guiding Catheters
  • Micro-guidewires
  • Flow-Directed Microcatheters
  • INR Coil Delivery Systems
  • INR Flow-Diverting Devices
  • And many more!

In this chart the Biocoat R&D team purchased six (6) different commercially available neurovascular microcatheters, two (2) of which were coated with Biocoat’s HYDAK® technology. The Biocoat team measured both the lubricity and durability of each of the microcatheters in an effort to determine where HYDAK® stands in relation to industry competitors. Our testing proves that HYDAK® exhibits best-in-class lubricity and durability results. Data on file.

cardio

Cardiovascular Device Coatings

Cardiovascular devices often require a highly lubricious coating to ensure that the insertion of a catheter, guidewire or other device can easily access the area of interest. Medical devices that employ hydrophilic coatings that offer low friction, high levels of durability and low particle counts ensure that the patient is given the best option available.

We have experience in coating all types of cardiovascular devices including:

  • PTCA Balloon Catheters
  • PTCA Dilatation Catheters
  • Diagnostic Catheters
  • Stent Delivery Systems
  • Guiding Catheters
  • Guidewires
  • Introducer Sheaths
  • Coronary Atherectomy Devices
  • AAA Stent Graft Systems
  • CTO Crossing Catheters
  • IVUS Catheters
  • Transcatheter Heart Valve Replacement Systems
  • Embolic Protection Devices
  • And many more!

In this chart the Biocoat R&D team purchased six (6) different commercially available angioplasty catheters, one (1) of which was coated with Biocoat’s HYDAK® technology.

peripheral

Peripheral Vascular Device Coatings

In cases where medical devices are needed to improve vascular access, Biocoat’s HYDAK® coatings will allow your device to easily access the area of interest. Medical devices that employ hydrophilic coatings that offer low friction, high levels of durability and low particle counts ensure that the patient is given the best option available.

We have experience in coating all types of Peripheral Vascular devices including:

  • Atherectomy Systems
  • PTA Balloon Catheters
  • CTO Devices
  • Balloon Dilation Catheters
  • Drug-Eluting Vascular Stent Systems
  • Peripheral Imaging Catheters
  • Guidewires
  • Introducer Sheaths
  • And many more!
optho

Opthamology Device Coatings

Hydrophilic coatings are often used for intraocular lenses (IOLs) and the delivery cartridges used to place the IOLs must be lubricious. Devices that use HYDAK® are instantly lubricous and have low particulate counts, which is critical when dealing with this sensitive area of the body.

We have experience in coating all types of Ophthalmology devices including:

  • IOL Cartridges
  • Surgical Needles
  • Injectors
  • And many more!
