Materials Selection for Medical Devices

Granta and ASM International provide reference data for applications including cardiovascular implantable devicesJoin our short online seminar on Tuesday, October 25, to discuss the importance of materials selection for medical devices and how to overcome some key problems:

  • How do you conduct an exhaustive search for suitable materials?
  • How do you navigate the wide choice of commercially available plastic and elastomer grades?
  • How do you ensure an audit trail for your material selection?
  • How do you make that search reproducible?

Speed the design of new and improved devicesGranta experts will demonstrate a practical solution that combines the systematic selection methodology and powerful materials property charting tools of the CES Selector software with engineering, economic, environmental, and medical property data for the complete range of engineering materials.

With two broadcasts, timed for Europe and America, this short web seminar also provides an opportunity to take part in a live Q&A session with Granta's medical specialists.
