There is a pressing need for low-friction, durable and cost-effective
coatings for catheters and guidewires used in many medical applications.
Medical Surface has developed the MediShieldTM Lubricious Coatings for
catheters and guidewires. The coating has ultralow friction, is extremely
durable (covalent bonding) and cost-effective.
The outer surfaces of implanted medical devices (including biosensors,
implants, artificial joints, heart valves) come in direct sustained contact
with host tissues. The host response to implanted biomaterials can
significantly interfere and impair the functions of implanted materials
and sensors. Medical Surface has developed the MediShieldTM
Biocompatible Coatings to effectively limit the Foreign Body Response
and to significantly extend the life of implanted materials and sensors.

Contact lenses are increasingly being used for developing biosensors that
can easily capture data on the various analytes within the tear film and
translate it to practitioners in real time. Due to the hydrophobic nature of
the materials used to make these contact lenses, hydrophilic coatings are
needed to prevent tear breaking, increase comfort and reduce infections
associated with long term wear. Medical Surface has developed the
MediShieldTM Hydrophilic Coatings for contact lens biosensors.
Medical Surface has developed an effective super-hydrophobic coating
technology and an effective super-hydrophilic coating technology that can
be used to coat gloves, fabrics, and general equipment used in medical
applications. The super-hydrophobic and super-hydrophilic surfaces have
self-cleaning effects that can keep bacteria off the surface.
Medical Surface has developed innovative surfaces for microplates and cell
culture ware used in laboratory assays and cell culture.
