WEBINAR: Solving MedTechs challenges using medical grade silicones

Material selection, supply chain integrity, and evolving regulatory requirements: three case studies addressing challenges faced by today's MedTech Designers.

Date: 25 May

Time:​ 7am Pacific Time / 10am East Coast time / 4pm CET

The current pandemic has revealed three critical aspects of the medical device industry to the public. First, this industry is of utmost importance to maintain functioning Healthcare systems around the world. Second, the fabrication and supply of medical devices can be disrupted by local events; therefore, the robustness and reactivity of their supply chain should be improved. And third, their use and supply are subject to regulatory approvals which vary in speed and complexity depending on the region of the globe.

Global Data and Elkem Silicones will host an exclusive webinar dedicated to medical companies on the challenges that are faced when developing and manufacturing medical devices. Three case studies will cover: the support on medical device design with medical grade silicones with a focus on performance of the end component, supply chain challenges with a presentation of worldwide fabrication options and medical companies’ journey through regulatory changes and challenges.

In this webinar, examples of collaborations between Elkem Silicones and medical companies will be presented. This presentation will enable to have an overview and learn more about:

  • Innovative medical grade silicones development supporting final performances of high-end medical devices
  • Capabilities to supply and transform medical grade silicones all over the world
  • How material suppliers can support medical companies achieve compliance to Healthcare regulations

Register to the webinar and find how Elkem Silicones could help have the keys to succeed in new product development & manufacturing with medical grade silicones.
