At Biocoat, we offer a complete solution for the coating of neurovascular medical devices. Our hydrophilic coatings offer best-in-class performance with the industry’s lowest particulate counts. Our flexible service model allows you to coat your materials either at your own production facility or at our Contract Coating Services Unit. Your medical device is specifically designed to achieve its intended goal and our coatings allow for your device to be easily maneuverable and highly durable, to optimize vascular access and minimize procedure time.
At Biocoat, we are focused on researching, developing, manufacturing, and applying the best coatings in the market. Our team is fully dedicated to providing our customers with a best-in-class experience at every step.
The following charts show the results of a series of tests that the Biocoat Research & Development team completed to test the friction, durability and particulates on commercially available microcatheters.
In order for our coatings to retain their best-in-class status, we continually test our products to ensure that they meet the three criteria on which hydrophilic coatings are measured. An effective lubricious coating should have each of the following components:
Our customer required a coating that allowed the device to reach further into the vasculature while including the use of a soft distal tip.
Biocoat was required to supply a coating that would be extremely durable, while ensuring optimal performance for maneuverability through the torturous paths in the neurovascular anatomy.
Biocoat’s Application Development team recommended HYDAK® Thermal coatings to the client’s Engineering team to develop a custom coating solution that allowed maximum lubricity, durability and to meet the FDA’s requirements for particulate counts. The client’s device was FDA 510k cleared for use and has become the leading neurovascular catheter on the market.
Our team of engineers and coating experts would be glad to have a discussion about your project and its requirements.
