Central Venous Catheters (CVC)
Central venous catheters (CVC) are placed percutaneously in the large veins of the neck or in the groin (femoral vein) with the distal end of the catheter typically terminating in the lower 1/3 of the superior vena cava (SVC).  CVCs are used to administer medication or fluids, obtain blood samples, and measure central venous pressure.

Key Capabilities & Technologies

  • Single-lumen, multi-lumen
  • Bump tubing
  • Pressure extrusion
  • Extrusion tipping
  • Hub molding and luer assembly
  • Customizable luers with limited tooling needed

Implantable Port

Implantable Ports
Implantable ports are implanted subcutaneously in the upper chest with the distal end of the catheter typically terminating in the lower 1/3 of the superior vena cava (SVC).  Implantable ports are used for long-term venous access for infusion of medications, parenteral nutrition, or IV solutions.

Key Capabilities & Technologies

  • Single-lumen, multi-lumen
  • Bump tubing
  • Pressure extrusion
  • Extrusion tipping
  • Hub molding and luer assembly

Hemodialysis Catheters
Hemodialysis catheters are dual lumen catheters used for exchanging blood from the patient to and from the hemodialysis machine.  Hemodialysis catheters are typically placed percutaneously in the large veins of the neck with the distal end of the catheter terminating in the superior vena cava (SVC).

Key Capabilities & Technologies

  • Single-lumen, multi-lumen
  • Bump tubing
  • Pressure extrusion
  • Extrusion tipping
  • Hub molding and luer assembly
  • Customizable luers with limited tooling needed

Angiographic / Diagnostic Catheters

Angiographic Catheters
Flexible diagnostic catheters are used to gain vessel access and deliver radiopaque dye for the purpose of performing angiography.  Diagnostic catheters may include side-hole configurations.

Key Capabilities & Technologies

  • Highly lubricious / durable coatings (pre-coat PTFE, hydrophilic, silicone, etc.)
  • Bump tubing
  • Pressure extrusion
  • Extrusion tipping

Energy-Based Device

Electrical & Optical Mechanical Devices
Energy-based devices are unveiling a new paradigm in diagnosing and treating cardiovascular related disease states.  More than ever before guidewires and catheters are tasked with not only providing conventional access and delivery functionality, but also supporting emerging energy-based technologies used across a myriad of modalities including imaging, pressure / flow measurement and plaque identification to mention a few.  Guidewire and catheter based devices in this area require innovative clinical solutions paired with exacting technical capabilities.

Key Capabilities & Technologies

  • Mechanical delivery platforms (spiral core, cut tubing, spline wire, torque cables)
  • Joining / connections (laser welding, wire wrapping, fine wire joining, proximal ring connectors)
  • Coatings / coverings (dielectric, isolative, hydrophilic)
  • Novel sensor and connector attachment
  • Automated ring on wire attachment
  • Electromagnetic sensor integration
  • Electrical and fatigue testing
