PRODUCTS & SERVICES Myeloperoxidase Antigen A company ofers Myeloperoxidase (pANCA) antigen. Antibodies to Myeloperoxidase have been observed in a number of disorders, including systemic vasculitis, glomerulonephritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and infammatory bowel disease. Elevated plasma levels have also been reported in acute coronary syndromes and with some malignancies. As such, the availability of this product will serve to beneft the needs of clinical researchers, laboratory professionals, and IVD manufacturers, as it has been expressly designed for use as an integral component in solid phase ELISA-based immunoassay test procedures. Tis antigen is sourced from human neutrophils and free of HBs-Ag, HCV, HIV-1 and HIV-2. It ofers good degrees of activity and specifcity and exhibits a purity level in excess of 95%, as assessed by SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. BIndIng sIte Inc. www.thebindingsite.com Precision Die-Cutting Services Custom-fabricated flters, gaskets, membranes, seals, shields, spacers, and related parts for medical applications are the stock in trade of an ISO 13485–certifed contract manufacturer that produces medical parts to OEM specifcation by means of die-cutting. Te company uses the most appropriate die-cutting technology for the application in manufacturing precision medical parts from a range of materials that includes engineered plastics, thin-flm polyesters, rigid and fexible plastics, foams, felt, and Poron. Components can have intricate shapes, narrow cross sections, close hole spacing, and various geometries. Te contractor incorporates custom-engineered adhesives to suit the application. Supplied in prototype through production quantities rotary kiss-cut on rolls and dieless- or die-cut in individual polybags, foil pouches, or bulk packaging, custom components can range in size from under 1 in. square, with a tolerance of ±0.005-in., up to 60 in. wide. Interstate specIalty products Inc. www.interstatesp.com Tube-and-Fitting Assembly System Te CRD 600 automatic ftting inserter can be used to carry out high-speed assembly of tapered-barb connectors and medical tubing produced from thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) and ofers an alternative to assembling PVC tubing by means of solvent bonding. Te high-productivity system enables medical device manufacturers to obtain strong, secure connections even at high assembly speeds. Te unit has operated at a rate of 2300 cycles per hour in demonstration; and with the addition of a feeder bowl, an operator can make 1800 insertions per hour, including time for handling the tubing and inspecting results. Because it allows for insertion of oversized barbs into tubing with a smaller internal diameter, it ensures a stronger ft than is possible with solvent bonding. In demonstration, tapered-barb connectors have been ftted into TPE tubing with a retention strength exceeding 8.0 lbf. clean room devIces llc www.cleanroomdevices.com 38 IVD TEC HNOL O G Y | SP RIN G 2013 magenta cyan yellow black i v d t e c hnol ogy. com ES236196_IV1305_038.pgs 04.23.2013 23:36 UBM
