Molex Introduces MediSpec™ Micro-Miniature Coiling Offering Precision Performance Wire for Medical Procedures at MD&M Minneapolis
Molex Incorporated will showcase the company's MediSpec™ Micro-Miniature Coiling (MMC) capability designed for medical applications, including minimally invasive surgery, catheters and implanted devices at MD&M Minneapolis, October 30 through November 1, booth 1344. Constructed of biocompatible materials, MediSpec MMC features a continuous length coil enabling extrusion of micro gauge (50 to 26 AWG class) wire at virtually infinite lengths.
“Consistent with the Molex strategy to develop differentiated interconnects for the medical market, the MMC technology allows us to offer a wire solution to the growing market for minimally invasive and implantable interconnects,” states Anthony Kalaijakis, medical strategic marketing manager, Molex.
Molex MMC technology is tailored for device designers in cardiac rhythm management, pacemakers and defibrillators, as well as implantable neurological pain management and stimulation. Conventional coils produced on a lathe are restricted in length and do not always provide the tolerances required in mission critical procedures. New customizable MediSpec MMC continuous length coils can meet extremely tight tolerances to 0.0254 mm (0.001”) outer diameter. MMC coils are offered with or without a retracted tube mandrel in a wide selection of high performance fluoropolymers and PTFE suitable for invasive/implanted applications.
General Manager of Temp-Flex,LLC., a Molex company, Peter Evans adds, “With Temp-Flex's expertise in specialty wire and cable products, Molex has further extended the MediSpec product offering. MediSpec micro-miniature coil provides a unique canted coil design over a hollow mandrel, which allows an extremely flexible coil for routing within the body, in addition to serving as a path for other media, such as cameras, ablation, fluid and gases.”
Biocompatible MediSpec MMC meets Class 3 standards for medical probes and devices. For more information about Molex MediSpec solutions, please visit http://www.molex.com/link/medispec.html.
