NEU and Microspec to deliver antimicrobial solutions for complex medical tubing

NEU's antimicrobial solutions for medical devices such as catheters and tubing enhance the ability to kill bacteria at the point of treatment. Microspec has earned a global reputation for extruding small, complex medical tubing with tight tolerances. The company has produced tubing with an outside diameter as small as 0.004 inch (0.1 mm) and multi-lumen tubing as small as 0.12 inch (0.305 mm). Microspec can also layer antimicrobial additives in the outer portion of multi-lumen tubing, which can help keep costs down and places the antimicrobial on the surface and outer band of the device where it is needed."This collaboration combines Microspec's leadership in medical extrusions with NEU's leadership in materials to offer unique solutions to the healthcare industry," said Tim Steele, CEO and Founder of Microspec Corporation.
