Summary

Summary: 
A German company together with a project partner have developed a medical endovascular catheter to remove blood clots and thromboses from the human body. The tool features a refined design in the size range of <100 micrometres. They are seeking a suitable partner for the integration (assembly) of the device into a marketable product (complete catheter) in the form of a manufacturing agreement.

Description

Description: 

The German company is specialised in additive manufacturing of large-scale industrial applications including application development support, the setup of pilot factories to demonstrate target costs, quality and lead time as well as part production for production ramp-up and transfer of additive manufacturing production to clients or suppliers.
Together with a project partner, the company has developed a micro-surgical tool via 3D printing. The tool is extremely small (micrometre range) and can serve surgeons to remove blood clots and thromboses from the human body. A suitable partner is sought for the integration of the micro-surgical tool into sterile, medical catheters and suitable sterile packaging in the form of a manufacturing agreement. Ideally, the partner will also act as distributor of the certified (ISO 13485) product to medical resellers.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Cooperation sought: 
Technical expertise and production facilities to integrate very small components in the micrometer range into sterile, medical catheters and suitable sterile packaging according to ISO 13485. Network of medical resellers and end users.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
Companies active in the medtech sector. Integration (assembly) of a 3D printed medical micro catheter device into a marketable product (complete catheter). Ideally, the partner will also act as distributor of the certified (ISO 13485) product to medical resellers.
