Epoxy Technology’s line of biocompatible adhesives
Billerica, Massachusetts – Epoxy Technology Inc. has completed ISO 10993 testing of its previously Class VI adhesives, as well as the significant addition of 12 new medical device grade adhesives, to extend its MED line of biocompatible products to 23.
To date, 14 products have undergone ISO 10993-5 Cytotoxicity testing, an excellent screening testing for biocompatibility, and 9 additional products have undergone even more screening passing all ISO 10993 -4,5,6,10,11 testing. Included in testing for EPO-TEK MED-301 was an extended implantation test, from the normal 2 weeks to 12 weeks, which it passed. This specific optically clear epoxy adhesive is one of the most popular and well-proven material often used for molding header systems on many types of devices including pacemakers, ICDs and neurostimulators.
