Optical Thickness Measurement of Coronary Balloons and Medical Tubing

Posted February 15, 2017 by Kristin

Medical device manufacturers often struggle when inspecting balloons, tubes, stents, and other medical products with many simplistic measurement devices in use today. There are limitations when using micrometers, microscopes, pin gauges, and razor blades that limit accuracy, repeatability, and general ease-of-use.

Lumetrics’ low-coherence interferometer, OptiGauge II, is a device capable of measuring the simultaneous wall thickness, inner-diameter, and outer-diameter thickness of medical devices. Combined with custom software and automated scanners, a medical balloon or tube can be fully profiled quickly and accurately, on-line or off-line.  Click below to download our app note!
