Implants

Medical Murray produces implants and their delivery systems for stents, stent grafts, bioabsorbables, textiles and sensors.

Medical Murray is a trusted partner to develop and manufacture implants and their delivery systems. Our tightly controlled cleanroom manufacturing and Good Manufacturing Practices ensure repeatability of all products and processes with minimal contamination.

We have created medical implants for a variety of applications including stent grafts, valve repair and replacement, occlusion, bioabsorbables, regenerative scaffolds, mesh, ureteral stents, nerve stimulation, gastric balloons, and infusion ports for drug delivery. We specialize in the following types of implanted products:

Material Selection

Medical Murray can support the design and material selection for your implanted device. When developing a medical implant, selecting the proper materials requires an understanding of the biological, physical, and chemical characteristics needed. Our material selection process considers the entire lifecycle of a product.

Material Selection Considerations:

  • Physical properties
  • Biocompatibility
  • Changes to material after implanted
  • Willingness of supplier to sell raw materials for implanted use
  • Processing limitations
  • Cost
  • Sterilization impact
  • Shelf-life durability

Implanted Material Experience:

  • PTFE and ePTFE
  • Bioabsorbable / Absorbable
  • Polyurethanes
  • Liquid Crystalline Polymer (LCP)
  • Polyester
  • Silicone Rubber
  • PEEK
  • Polysulfone
  • Nitinol
  • Stainless Steel
  • Other metals such as: Titanium, Cobalt-Chromium, Gold, Platinum, Platinum-Iridium

Implant Testing Services

We also provide testing of permanent implants to evaluate both design and performance standards. All testing is performed according to pre-approved protocol and conforms with required ISO and ASTM standards. Our testing supports regulatory filings, validations, and market comparison studies.

Examples of our implant testing services include the following:

  • Finite element analysis
  • Mechanical properties
  • Biocompatibility
  • Corrosion testing
  • Simulated use
  • Radial force & crush testing
  • Pulsatile durability
  • Implant Deployment
  • Degradation
  • Radiopacity
