Medical tubing and catheters play a critical
role in a huge variety of healthcare applications, and demand is growing thanks
to factors such as an aging population and moves towards less invasive medical
The 4th edition of our Medical
Tubing conference will address the latest tubing and catheter developments for
a wide range of medical requirements including intravenous, infusion, dialysis,
respiratory, feeding, and drainage applications. It will also examine the
latest standards and certification requirements in this heavily regulated
There are a huge variety of polymer options
available for medical tubing production including flexible vinyl compounds,
thermoplastic elastomers, thermoplastic urethanes, polyolefins, fluoropolymers,
polyamides, polyimides, silicones, PEEK and PEBA. Inter-material competition is
strong and selecting the optimum polymer grade to meet requirements such as
flexibility, clarity, kink-resistance, dimensional stability, biocompatibility
and cost-reduction can present a considerable challenge. In addition, exciting new developments in
additives and the latest compound formulations are bringing added
functionality, increased performance and improved biocompatibility to medical
tubing products. Examples include antimicrobial, radiopaque, nanocomposite,
lubricious and color-coded compounds.
Speakers at Medical Tubing 2020 will address
the latest advances in polymers, additives and compounds to meet the growing
and evolving demands of this dynamic and highly competitive market.
On the design and production front, tubing
configurations are becoming more complex, including increasingly sophisticated
multi-layer, multi-lumen and micro-bore designs. These have to be produced to
extremely tight tolerances and at higher throughputs to deliver cost
efficiencies. At Medical Tubing 2020, you can hear leading experts discuss how
extrusion technologies are being developed and refined to meet these
The popular exhibition runs alongside two
busy days of presentations, providing plenty of networking opportunities during
breaks, lunches and the evening cocktail reception. Medical Tubing 2020 is the
perfect place to meet key players and decision makers from throughout the
medical tubing supply chain. Our Medical Tubing conferences in Europe and
the United States regularly attract more than 120 attendees with international
backgrounds, more than 20 key medical tubing and device producers and always
feature a busy and vibrant exhibition.
