Trelleborg Releases Whitepaper on Silicone Drug-Eluting Combination Devices

Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical releases a technical whitepaper discussing the different manufacturing processes of combining silicone with Advanced Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), the pros and cons, and test results that prove the effectiveness of the elution method in drug-eluting devices.

Novel Solutions 


Zach Fletcher, Business Development Manager for Drug Combination Devices, and author of the whitepaper, says: “Single entity combination devices continue to show promise for providing novel solutions to some of the most challenging conditions patients face today. 

 

“Silicone stands out as one of the most successful materials to support the production and advancement of combination products. Its biocompatibility and porousness make it a perfect fit for the growing market of implantable devices. When medical device manufacturers are supported by component suppliers early in the product development cycle, they can navigate all manufacturing considerations and determine the best method for adding API to silicone.”
