Topic: IntegriMedical Needle Free Injection Systems
IntegriMedical is a US based organization with operations in USA, Europe, India & Hongkong. We are launching a new generation of needle free cartridge injectors which utilizes high velocity mechanical power to administer low viscosity drugs or biologics such as vaccines, insulin, or anesthetics effectively and consistently via Intramuscular and Subcutaneous approaches.
The Needle Free Injection System is non-invasive, comfortable and reduces bruising typically associated with multiple injections. The system delivers between 0.1 ml to 0.5 ml of liquid medication under the skin, in less than 1/10th of a second. It is ideal for pediatrics in minimizing needle phobia to geriatrics with fragile skin. The Needle Free Cartridge System eliminates the risk of needle stick injuries and cross contamination and doesn’t need to be disposed in dangerous sharps containers.
The system is compact, lightweight, easy to use device which provides comfort for patients and transformative safety for healthcare professionals.
Topic: UV-C Disinfection of Mobile Technology in a Hospital Environment
The proliferation of mobile technology in the hospital environment creates new vectors for cross-contamination of non-critical medical equipment with microbes responsible for HAIs. According to most regulatory guidelines, mobile devices used in service of patients should not only be cleaned, but disinfected appropriately as well. UV-C technology has much potential for disinfecting mobile devices, but there are challenges that must be overcome in design, implementation, and practice. Concerns surrounding materials degradation resulting from UV exposure must be addressed, as well as standards for use. Appropriate protocols must be instituted on a case-by-case basis that allow for quick turnaround, compliance enforcement, and auditability. Users must be educated to ensure effectiveness of instituted programs.

Topic: Air Ionization - A Key Requirement for Medical Device Manufacturing to Ensure Reliability, Safety and Yield
Static electricity is the cause of some of the most common reliability, safety, yield, and quality issues in medical device manufacturing. Two major quality problems are Electrostatic discharge damage (ESD) and electrostatic attraction (ESA) of foreign materials/particulate. It is estimated that these two factors amount to millions of dollars of loss throughout the medical device industry each year. Over ninety percent (90%) of particulate contamination yield losses can be resolved by eliminating/reducing the static charge on products. Air ionization is a primary solution for ESA & ESD.
Proper implementation of air ionization systems can mean the difference between a contaminated and ESD-damaged medical device or a high-quality product that meets and exceeds medical professionals' quality and reliability expectations.

Topic: Medical rubber products and their composites in sustainable factories.
Asahi Rubber has started accepting not only for high-performance rubber products but also mating and assembling with resin parts as well.
As rubber products, we manufacture high-quality, stable-functioning slit rubber for three-way stopcocks and PFS gaskets used for medical equipments. As assembled products, we manufacture check valves for hemodialysis circuits as well
With the aim of establishing a sustainable production system, we produce at factories that use clean energy with the goal of reducing CO2 emissions. In doing so, our factories have solar panels installed that generate electricity by ourselves and as a result, we hold CO2 emission. Further, in order to meet quality requirement for medical equipments, we realize molding process that meet customers needs, acquiring ISO13485 and with a clean room environment (ISO class 7).

Topic: Reduce Time to Market through Virtual Molding
Systematic approach in product and mold development are common in the plastics industry. Particularly in medical industry it takes years to release the final product to end users. It is where simulation can be used to significantly reduce or eliminate the time. A process simulation, whether it's for the design of a new process or the optimization of an existing one, not only saves resources, but it also makes the product reach market faster, which is critical when the deadline is approaching.
At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, around 15 different companies, including Arburg, Wacker, Polar-Form, and SIGMA Engineering, worked together to set up mass production for medical mouth-nose masks in a very short time. Simulation in process design and virtual molding, in addition to the commitment of all partners involved, contributed to the quick success. This presentation explains how we achieved that.
