更安全的旋塞阀连接
抗药性和抗脂质性聚合物在提高患者安全性方面发挥着越来越重要的作用。严格的灭菌技术会导致常用塑料出现开裂、银纹和发雾。它们还会使某些聚合物变黄,从而影响连接器应用中的颜色编码系统。

Eastman Tritan共聚聚酯可耐受多种医用液体,例如肿瘤药物、药物载体溶剂和脂质。除了其韧性、低残余应力和灭菌后的颜色稳定性外,Tritan还是流体管理组件的绝佳选择。

医疗市场的法规在不断变化。当面向OEM市场的一次性医疗器械的世界一流制造商Elcam Medical希望进一步提高其流体管理设备的安全性和有效性时,他们求助于Eastman,以寻找一种既符合新法规又能优化性能的聚合物。

Working with our technical experts, Elcam developed drug- and lipid-resistant BPA-free stopcocks and connectors made with Tritan. They are designed to meet new ISO 80369 standards, which encourage worldwide consistency in small-bore connectors for liquids and gasses in healthcare applications to reduce the risk of misconnections between medical devices and accessories.

为更安全的器械提供安全连接
小口径连接器是许多肠内喂养器械的重要组成部分。良好的设计至关重要,因为管道错误连接或故障会使患者面临严重受伤或死亡的风险。

管道连接器的全球设计标准现在正在帮助提高患者安全性和器械功效。 ISO 80369要求小口径连接器由半刚性和刚性材料制成,从而减少错误互连的可能性。肠内器械是第一个经历这种变化的临床应用。
为了达到这个标准,您可能需要调整您的设计,这意味着您可能需要一个新的模具或新的材料。Eastman Tritan共聚聚酯是一种刚性材料,具有符合这些规定所需的特性。

BPA-free Tritan demonstrates excellent chemical resistance, toughness, and color stability post-sterilization. It also helps maintain device safety and efficacy by ensuring that connecting parts retain their shape, dimension, and clarity during and after sterilization.

Using a rigid material that won’t be compromised by sterilization helps ensure patient safety and the efficacy of your device. Contact us for more information on switching to Tritan.

聚合物与肿瘤药物的相容性
由于为改善癌症治疗而持续努力,各制药公司正在开发经过改进的全新肿瘤药物。 然而,先进的肿瘤药物和 载体溶剂对递送装置中使用的聚合物的耐化学性提出了挑战。这种情况会阻止器械正常工作或导致它们过早发生故障。当出现器械性能或生命周期受损的模式时,监管机构可能会告诉制造商停止使用某些材料,从而保障患者安全。
 
Polymer selection is critical to a medical device. Engineering polymers offer many advantages for infusion and blood contact devices compared with other materials. Advantages include design and color flexibility, aesthetic appeal, reduced weight, corrosion resistance, and clarity. But polymers that have a low level of compatibility with chemicals-such as lipids, disinfectants, and specific oncology drugs and solvents-can experience environmental stress cracking or premature device failure in the presence of applied or residual stress.
 
It’s important to evaluate polymers for chemical resistance to keep patients safe and ensure device longevity. Eastman Tritan copolyesters have good overall chemical resistance and provide an attractive alternative to polycarbonate (PC) or acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) for oncology drug delivery devices. For closed-system transfer devices and other infusion devices, Tritan can be a candidate for molding devices that are compliant with safety alerts from regulatory agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices.
 
Eastman technical specialists can help you early on in your process to produce high quality medical devices. Contact us to learn more about the attributes of Tritan and how it compares to other commonly used materials when tested for chemical compatibility.
