2. Troubleshooting – get faster solutions and use tools that detect and deliver more than bulk techniques.
3.Claims support – back your product claims with strong evidence; tell a story and convey it through powerful imagery. To view the webinar recording, please click here
2020                                 Event
15 October 2020 Webinar: Oxidation Kinetics in Titanium
Titanium is one of the most widely used metals in alloys for medical device applications due to its strength, corrosion resistance, and biocompatibility, amongst other characteristics. It is also has form versatility and manufacture versatility. However, one of the most challenging phenomena with the use of titanium is oxidation. Whether intentional or unintentional, the process by which oxides form must be understood and well controlled to ensure optimal performance of any medical device. In this webinar, Julius Bonini, Principal Consultant of Metallurgy, explores the various reactions, phenomena, and challenges associated with titanium oxidation, exploring thermodynamics, atomic diffusion, and a whole lot more.

10 September 2020 Webinar: The Use of Surface Science for Solving Pharmaceutical and OTC Product Challenges
Pharmaceutical and Consumer Healthcare / OTC manufacturers are continually faced with a variety of issues throughout their development and manufacturing processes. These include, but are not limited to contamination, formulation and tablet discoloration, packaging incompatibilities, and major product failures. Our advanced analytical method development service allows our clients to implement and validate methods to evaluate their products, and our world class surface science suite is leveraged for troubleshooting and counterfeiting investigations. In this webinar, Ursula Thompson will explore how such techniques can be used for solving the aforementioned challenges. To view the webinar recording, please click here
3 September 2020 Webinar: The Use of Surface Science for Solving Cardio and Neurovascular Device Challenges
Cardiovascular and Neurovascular device manufacturers continue to innovate the surfaces of implants for improved clinical performance, enhanced therapeutic action, and market differentiation. The innovation can be achieved through changing materials, functionalizing surface chemistries, applying coatings, or employing processing treatments, to name a few. However, as with any innovation, challenges can arise - e.g. poor coating adherence on the surface of neurovascular stents; inconsistent pharmaceutical active loading on the surface of drug coated cardiovascular balloons; or pitting corrosion on the surface of overlapping stents. These are just a few of the many challenges encountered in the industry. As we collaboratively work to root-cause issues, optimize processes, and implement corrective actions, visualizing and quantifying surface chemistries and morphologies is paramount. In this webinar, Ursula Thompson explores various surface analysis techniques used to achieve these aforementioned goals. To view the webinar recording, please click here
12 March 2020 Webinar Series: Post Processing Issues Associated with Metallic Medical Components
Post-processing of medical devices is an important part of the manufacturing process to ensure products are clean, structurally and chemically stable, and in some cases to improve aesthetics. There are a wide range of post-processing treatments for medical devices. The best option for each device will depend on many factors, such as: material, manufacturing technique, final application and product geometry, and understanding the processes and key factors is crucial to achieving the best finish. This webinar series, hosted by our leading metallurgy expert Julius Bonini, takes a broad look at the range of treatments available and the typical effects of each. Julius discusses how each process is used, and its pros and cons, for traditional manufacturing techniques and for additive manufacturing processes. The first webinar in the series was released as a recording on 12 March, with the others being released over the ensuing weeks. To view the webinar recordings, please click here
