Bio-compatible 3D printing material provides medical solutions

Objet : 23 September, 2011  (New Product)
Objet launches a new bio-compatible 3D printing material (MED610) that combines bio-compatibility with high dimensional stability and clear transparency making it useful for PMMA simulation and a wide range of medical and dental applications - particularly the production of highly accurate, customised surgical guides.

Dr Stan Brodie, Specialist in Digital Implant Planning and Surgical Guides at iDent, and a user of Objet 3D printing technology, commented: "The accuracy and fine detail of Objet 3D-printed surgical guides guarantee surgeons a consistently high level of precision that's unmatched by manual processes. The new Bio-Compatible material now introduces further benefits to the process with improved transparency, making it easier to monitor underlying soft tissue during dental procedures."

Avi Cohen, Head of Medical Solutions at Objet, added: "Objet invests significantly in R and D in order to proactively meet the requirements of our customers. The advanced mechanical properties of the new Bio-Compatible material, including its clear transparency bring benefits to the entire medical and dental workflow - from surgical planning through to the procedure itself."

The new Objet Bio-Compatible material is ideal for prolonged skin contact of over 30 days and mucosal-membrane contact of up to 24 hours. It has five medical approvals according to the harmonized standard ISO 10993-1: Cytotoxicity, Genotoxicity, Delayed Type Hypersensitivity, Irritation and USP Plastic Class VI.

MED610 is also manufactured under the ISO 13485:2003 certification, which specifies that each and every batch of the material undergoes bio-compatibility conformity testing, including GC-FID before it is packaged. This ensures the highest bio-compatible standards for medical and dental application requirements.

MED610 is the second material the company has created specifically for dental and medical applications. It joins the company's original Objet VeroDent material, currently used extensively by dental labs worldwide in the digital dental process.

The Bio-Compatible material can be used on all Objet Connex and Eden 3D printers and is available for purchase immediately.
