ISO 80369: A New Standard to Avoid Medical Device Misconnections

Anaheim, CA 9280
Irving Paz, Healthcare Market Manager, Nexeo Solutions, will discuss the new standard ISO 80369 and the impact it has on selecting the right material in your plastics healthcare needs.
When selecting a material for the production of small-bore connectors, it is important not only to take into account the likelihood of medical devices misconnections, but also to understand the exposure to different forces and substances. Standard plastics could be cheap and do the job when aggressive substances are not in contact with the medical device and its connections. However, if you are dealing with medical devices used in oncology therapy or nutrition, it is important that the materials are: compliant with oncology drugs, have lipid resistance, chemical compatibility, durability, clarity, withstand sterilization and have good aesthetic properties.
