Drug Delivery Devices

A Proven Process for the Manufacture Micro Molded Medical Devices for Critical Applications

Micro-sized components are often the key enabling elements of Class II or Class III medical devices and drug delivery devices, and because of their size, they often require micron-level tolerances. With 30 years’ experience in micro injection molding, Isometric Micro Molding has developed a best-practice risk assessment strategy called “Microns MatterTM”, which is used for [...]

Isometric Micro Molding to present at Antec 2018, co-located with NPE

Micro sized components are often the enabling components to Class II or III medical or drug delivery devices and, because of their size, require micron-level (0.0000397”) tolerances. Micro molding drug delivery devices to micron tolerances requires a solid risk assessment and a correspondingly extreme fine tuning of existing injection molding technologies. A case study for [...]

Micro Medical Device Chips Deliver Pinpoint Pain-Relieving Therapies

Often times in micro manufacturing, we use what has been successful in nature.  Commonly, natural pressure, or piezoelectric, capillary, and venture-type actions utilize pressure and surface tension to move fluids to and through implants and needles to move blood or active ingredients to direct places in the body. Isometric Micro [...]

Eye, Blood, and Joint Fluid Traveling Devices- Where Micro Molding Meets 3D Printing

It’s long been known that micro vs. macro physics have thwarted some efforts to create micro components and assemblies.  The study of Newtonian (fixed viscosity) and Non-Newtonian fluids (variable viscosity) fluids have an unique impact on developing and scaling drug delivery devices and body-fluid flow.  Non-Newtonian fluids can be found in [...]

Tiny Medical Devices – Designing for Success (part 2)

VALIDATION Picture this – your medical device is designed and you’re ready to validate the tiniest component – the technology piece that enables your intellectual property. You dive in head first, knowing your part has +/- 5 micron tolerances on a plastic part. You start like any engineer would start – with a solid stack-up [...]
