Wayne, Pa. (November 13, 2020) — Tekni-Plex Medical, a Tekni-Plex business, announces a streamlined, cost effective way for medical device manufacturers to obtain sample-sized tubing quantities. Now available through the Chamfr online marketplace, stock tubing ships within one day to help medical device manufacturers reduce their testing and commercialization timeline.
“Traditionally, if a medical device manufacturer wanted to test potential solutions for a given application, suppliers would require a minimum run purchase which could cost more than one thousand dollars per SKU and take several weeks to deliver,” said Meg Henke, global head of product marketing, Tekni-Plex Medical. “In today’s fast-moving marketplace where device manufacturers constantly race against the clock to deliver new technologies, reducing commercialization timelines is critical. Our goal was to provide a way to help make that happen.”
Design engineers can now select from a wide variety of tubing products that are in stock and can ship within one business day. Most of Tekni-Plex Medical’s tubing offerings on the Chamfr site cost less than $100 per item so design engineers have more flexibility to trial different tubing options for their unique application.
Tekni-Plex tubing is available in a wide range of durometers and performance characteristics. In addition to PVC options, Tekni-Plex will be offering multilayer and high-performance pump tubing, as well as chemically-resistant structures, through Chamfr. Tubing production is vertically integrated with PVC and TPE compounds manufactured at other Tekni-Plex Medical facilities.
Chamfr is a medical device focused multi-vendor marketplace where engineers and buyers can access nearly 1500 components from ~25 sellers for their medical device innovations. The one stop shop offers balloons, catheters & accessories, mandrels, nitinol, sutures, needles, thin films, polymer tubing, metal tubing, heat shrink tubing, and more. All components are in-stock and ready to ship in 24 hours. Learn more at Chamfr.com.
