For over 50 years, 3M has been a leader in the health care industry. During that time, our advanced technologies have contributed to the creation of more than 10,000 new health care products worldwide. 3M Medical Materials and Technologies supplies the medical device manufacturing, design and supply industries with a proven line of medical grade tapes, coatings and adhesive technologies, semi-finished components and selected bulk supplies of 3M branded products — all of which are carefully designed to enable the health care innovations of tomorrow.
Our experts can help you select the best components for your medical device design, from “skin-friendly” materials to aggressive medical adhesives used in the actual construction of your device. Whatever product development stage you’re at, we’re ready to help you succeed – with solutions that can help improve device reliability, enhance performance and reduce costs.
When it comes to microfluidics—3M gets it. We are your trusted source for advanced technologies in the design and manufacture of microfluidic devices. Typical uses for microfluidics include construction of blood glucose strips, lateral flow assays and other consumables and devices used for clinical, molecular and immunoassay diagnostics.
3M offers you a variety of proven solutions to help make it easier to produce consistently high-quality optical lenses at a competitive cost. 3M Press-OnTM Optics are optical lenses that offer eye care professionals the ability to correct several visual disorders in a simple therapeutic way.
3M's wide range of medical-grade adhesives and films can act as adhesives within the construction of your medical devices. You can take advantage of 3M's design and technical expertise and network of Preferred Converters to make sure you're using the best components and design for the application — no matter how complex or specialized.
When you work in the biopharmaceutical industry, you want to reduce time and bring efficiencies from the clinic to market. 3M wants to help you do that. 3M™ Zeta Plus™ Depth Filter, 3M™ Emphaze™ AEX Hybrid Purifier and 3M™ LifeASSURE™ Filter are single-use products that enable robust purification platformability across diverse biopharmaceutical modalities, designed for all process stages from lab scale-up to manufacturing stage.
It’s no secret that skin has many layers. The same can be said for transdermal patches. Several components comprise a transdermal patch: backings, liners, membranes and tapes. 3M delivers the customer and technical support you need to solve for challenging formulations, enhance cosmetic appearance and design for long-term success.
We offer a wide range of medical-grade materials and components to help you design and build more reliable, innovative and feature-rich medical devices.
From initial design through production, we put our medical industry expertise and broad technology portfolio to work for you – helping you bring the next generation of medical devices to life.
Manufacturing challenges can often complicate the already demanding job of medical device design.
To help you successfully get ahead of these challenges, we compiled our knowledge from working with design engineers and device manufacturers around the world into a guide – “A design engineer’s guide to manufacturing challenges: Finding balance between design, material & production.”
It will help you learn from obstacles others have experienced, ultimately helping you navigate the development process more efficiently.
Careful selection of quality materials during the concept stage can reduce the risk of delays late in the development process. With 3M, you can get technical, design-in expertise right from the start – making your materials selection process faster, easier and smarter.
