Invibio introduces new image-contrast grade
Invibio, a U.K.-based provider of biomaterial solutions to the medical device market, has introduced an image-contrast grade of its Peek-Optima polymer.

Invibio said its new product offers mechanical, physical and biocompatible properties of unfilled Peek-Optima polymer with opacity, enabling medical device manufacturers to develop implants that can be observed with x-ray and CT imaging modalities while remaining compatible with MR.

The image-contrast grade of Peek-Optima polymer is intended for implantable medical and pharmaceutical devices and applications requiring blood, bone or tissue contact of more than 30 days, according to Invibio.
