Medical device tubing specialist to exhibit solutions for surgical applications at MD&M West

Medical device tubing producer Polygon will be exhibiting its PolyMed Composite Tubing for surgical applications at MD&M West.


The tubing can be used for placement on electro-surgical devices, surgical ablation tools, suction irrigation or trocar cannula, endoscopic / laparoscopic instruments and robotic surgery technologies.

PolyMed Composite Tubing is invisible to X-ray, thermally insulating, and non-conductive. Rigid or flexible, PolyMed acts as a drop-in replacement for stainless steel tubing in a variety of endoscopic and laparoscopic instrumentation applications. PolyMed is ISO-10993 compliant and can be sterilised.

Ted Wallace, director of sales and marketing at Polygon, said: “Composites are an excellent replacement for stainless steel tubing and other metals in medical applications. PolyMed’s features and benefits out-do metal on multiple important factors, including patient protection.”

MD&M West takes place between 5-7 February at Anaheim Convention Center, California.
