Objet launches bio-compatible 3D printing material for clinical applications
22 September 2011
Objet has introduced a bio-compatible 3D printing materia called MED610, which combines bio-compatibility with high dimensional stability and clear transparency. This makes it useful for PMMA simulation and a wide range of medical and dental applications – particularly the production of highly accurate, customised surgical guides.
The new material is suitable for prolonged skin contact (in excess of 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.
MED610 can be used on all Objet Connex and Eden 3D printers and is available for purchase immediately. Existing customers can use this material following a software upgrade.
