Bioabsorbable Stents

Posted June 07, 2012 by Kristin

The article-  “Now you see me, now you don't: The bioabsorbable stent in clinical practice”  by Michael Riordan is extremely interesting in its differing  opinions from the consulting physicians.  I would be interested in knowing how people feel the data has changed these views since the 18 months that the article was written.  I am sure that the “jury is still out” but what have you heard?  Please read the article below and then give us your opinion in the comments!

Lumetrics Successes at MD&M East 2012

Posted June 07, 2012 by Kristin

Lumetrics®  exhibited at the 2012 Medical Design and Manufacturing Trade Show last week and it was a huge success.  The last three years have seen a significant reduction in the ability of many companies to provide measurement solutions for their process and quality problems.  Fortunately, Lumetrics® has stepped in to fill that need.

Product Watch: Automated X/Y Tissue Scanner

Posted July 28, 2010 by Kristin

Measuring pericardial and other collagenous tissue has always been a challenge for those in the medical field. However, the Automated X/Y Tissue Scanning System is leading the way in mapping three-dimensional thicknesses. With the data derived from this non-contact, non-destructive scanning system, you can create a safer, properly functioning product, improve inspection time, dramatically reduce costs, and ultimately improve customer satisfaction.

When you can easily measure this tissue, the guesswork is taken out of determining where the thickest and thinnest areas of the tissue are. Thickness plays a critical role in functionality of tissue based products. The Tissue Scanning System can be integrated with other components to configure a fully automated system.

The Food and Drug Association (FDA) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) hold strict compliance guidelines on all medical products to validate their safety for use in humans. This system will assure quality control and proper functioning in the products being produced.

The Tissue Scanning System is more accurate than the outmoded system of touch-gauge measuring, a manual, labor-intensive system that puts pressure on the naturally uneven, sterile tissue surface being measured, resulting in an inaccurate thickness measurement. 

By contrast, with the rapid, non-contact measurement of the Tissue Scanning System, the irregular surface of the product can be mapped while still maintaining a sterile environment. The tissue can be measured in a saline solution to maintain hydration and consistency, or out of solution to measure the relationship between dehydration rate and thickness.

Data is available instantaneously on the display in numeric graphical form and can be downloaded to a file or exported to an external database for further analysis.
