Genesis Plastics Welding, Inc. announced today the start of a new division – MedTech Launch by Genesis Plastics Welding. This division is strategically aligned to assist medical device clients in navigating the product launch process, from initial concept to commercialization, with a focus on design, prototyping, quality management, risk management, regulatory support and overall manufacturability.

“The worldwide demand for outsourced design engineering expertise is skyrocketing,” says Tom Ryder, president and CEO of Genesis Plastics Welding. “Often times, new medical device start-ups struggle to find the proper expertise and resources to help guide them through the development process with excellence and ease. With our longevity as a leading medical device contract manufacturer bridging the innovation gap for OEMs, we’re thrilled to take this next step and support our clients through all phases of the design and development process.

“Additionally, I am pleased to have Nathan Glass at the helm of this new division, as VP of Product Development,” says Ryder. “Nathan’s vast medical device product development knowledge will be a strong catalyst for many start-ups as they seek to go-to-market with their innovative devices.”

Glass, an Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis graduate, has nearly 10 years of project management and engineering experience. Throughout his career, he has closely worked with sales and marketinNathan Glass, Genesis Plastics Weldingg teams, as well as quality personnel to smoothly launch innovative medical device products. His areas of expertise include design definition, material selection, technical documentation, proof of concept, quality management, validation, design for manufacturability and project management.

“Our Genesis Plastics Welding clients truly enjoy working with us and often come to us with a need for additional support at the front end of their projects,” says Glass. “MedTech Launch is the result of us actively listening to our customers and aligning our capabilities to where they are in their process, while assisting to take their breakthrough devices to market with efficiency and excellence.”

[In the News] MedDevice Material Innovations

Late last week in Medical Plastics News online, Lorna O’Gara of Ultrapolymers took a look at polymer innovation in medical device and discussed the importance of taking into account the desired performance characteristics of a device, as well as, environmental factors, when selecting materials. She noted the importance getting stakeholders involved at the earliest possible stage of the design process to ensure the material most suited for the device’s application is selected.

We couldn’t agree more. This is often an early topic of discussion with our contract manufacturing medical device clients, as we help them to navigate from concept to commercialization. It’s such an important topic that we’ve developed several downloadable free resources for the industry and have material engineers on staff to help with selection and material challenges.

In the article, O’Gara also touches on PVC alternatives within MedDevice manufacturing. While, PVC is often the first choice for products such as IV fluid bags, dialysis solution products and blood bags, more and more medical device OEMs are searching out alternative polymer solutions for products where phthalate free is highly desired due to patient contact and other factors.

Over the years, switching to a PVC alternative has presented an issue for OEMs where radio frequency welding was the mode of sealing for their thin thermoplastic devices, however, due to Genesis Plastics Welding’s propriety RF welding technology, heat sealing non-PVC films without the addition of additives has become easy. Finally, OEMs have been able to gain material strength, flexibility, optimal yields and excellent barrier properties without having to choose PVC.

Visit Medical Plastics News for the entire article, where O’Gara masterfully discusses flexible medical device applications, material innovations in TPUs, TPEs and recyclable Polyolefin materials that will continue to help hospitals minimize their PVC waste.
