Teleflex Medical OEM Announces Expansion of Georgia Facility To Meet Growing Demand For Its Products

Teleflex Medical OEM, a leading manufacturer of micro-diameter tubing, specialty wire, and devices used throughout the healthcare industry, is announcing an expansion to its Trenton, Georgia facility. The project adds 16,000 square feet to the facility, which will house a renovated wire development area; an expanded, state-of-the-art film-cast tubing center; and support functions. Increased domestic and international demand for Teleflex Medical OEM’s innovative medical products led to the need for increased capacity.

New Suture Technology, From Teleflex Medical OEM, May Reduce Tissue Strangulation

Teleflex Medical OEM, a global leader in specialized sutures and performance fibers, announces an innovative suture technology: Force Fiber Fusion® Suture. This “two-in-one” construct transitions from round suture to a flat braid center segment and back to round suture. It has a broader footprint and offers a more uniform distribution of pressure than similar suture.* This may reduce tissue strangulation and a “cutting effect” in applications where tissue pull-through may be a concern.
 
Prepared from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), Force Fiber Fusion® Suture is softer and more pliable than similar products on the market.** The suture also is strong, durable, and lubricious. Fusion Suture is braided using a proprietary, continuous process that creates seamless transitions between each segment. Don’t confuse it with look-alike products that are simply a flat segment “sewn” onto two round sutures.

Compared to similar suture* on the market, Force Fiber Fusion® Suture has a lower knot profile and an average knot height that is ¼ the size. In addition, the height of Fusion Suture’s flat center section is 38% thinner than similar products.*

Force Fiber Fusion® Suture is cleared in the USA for approximation and/or ligation of soft tissue, including the use of allograft tissue for orthopedic procedures. It is offered in USP suture sizes 1 to 5 and available in a large assortment of color and pattern options. Widths, lengths, and patterns can be customized to meet specific requirements.

For additional information, connect with us at the virtual COMPAMED Trade Show or visit www.teleflexmedicaloem.com. 
 

*Testing conducted on size 3 & 4, and 5 Force Fiber Fusion® Suture against comparable product in sterilized form. These tests may not be indicative of clinical performance. Data on file.
**According to a survey conducted of subject matter experts that compared and ranked size 3 & 4, and 5 Force Fiber Fusion® Suture against a comparable product, FiberTape® size 2.

Innovative Braiding Technology Unveiled by Teleflex Medical OEM

Teleflex Medical OEM, a global leader in custom-engineered sutures announces an advanced braiding technology that can divide a suture into multiple end branches or integrate several “loops” within the strand. This continuous braiding process can produce variations of complex, divided segments at the end of a suture, or between singular round or flat tape segments. The need for expensive and time-intensive manual sewing is eliminated.

The braiding technology allows for a broad range of configurations that are expected to be used in orthopedic applications where two sutures are presently used for fixation.

At this time, the furcated braiding process can be used to customize Teleflex Medical OEM’s high-strength Force Fiber® OrthoTape® Braid, a flat tape, and to Force Fiber Fusion® Suture, a product that transitions from round suture to a flat center and back to round suture in one seamless strand.
