Catheter-based Interventions: Invibio offers many biocompatible options.

Drug delivery ports are just one example of the diverse applications for PEEK-OPTIMA polymers.

Evolving minimally invasive surgical techniques require continual advancement in catheter systems — whether developing a catheter to be used acutely in the delivery of specialised device or a drug delivery system that will be permanently implanted.

  • Invibio offers a range of biomaterials with high tensile strength, tailored radiopacity and compatibility with multiple sterilization methods.
  • PEEK-OPTIMA polymers can easily be extruded into tubing with excellent kink resistance.  In addition, it can be moulded or machined for complex catheter connector components with high-strength and MRI-compatibility requirements.
  • PEEK-OPTIMA polymers are highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals and are resistant to stress cracking – the process that can occur from extended exposure to liquids when used as a port.
