Practical Challenges for Medical Device Coatings

Posted by Josh Simon on Fri, Apr 20, 2012 @ 04:41

I still plan to talk a little more about particulates as promised, but I wanted to take a break and point out an article I have out in Medical Design Technology.

The title is Practical Challenges for Medical Device Coatings, and as you may guess, it spells out some things to think about when looking at coating data. This is not just for hydrophilic coatings, but for many other kinds as well.

The full issue of Medical Design Technology is found here.  To get to my article, turn to page 24, or click on the link to the article in the Table of Contents.

I dislike these digital edition magazines becasue they hide all their content behind a single URL and that does not let you link directly to an article, nor does it let anyone get search engine credit for it.
