Panel: Material Innovations Driving Product Quality

Anthony Walder  (Technical Fellow, Lubrizol)

Alexis Sauer- Budge, PhD  (Managing Scientist, Polymer Science & Materials Chemistry, Exponent)

Location: Biomed Room 2

Date: Thursday, September 17

Time: 8:30am - 9:15am

Track: Track D: Cementing the Bond Between Design and Manufacturing

Vault Recording: TBD

New trends and developments continue to drive device innovation, but they also push new materials to the forefront as well. Developments in miniaturization, micro plastics, and single use issues has given rise to new considerations for material selection. During this session, a panel of material experts will discuss new developments and their applications and impact on manufacturing and quality.

Topics covered include:
  • Trends in materials for drug delivery, implantable and wearable devices
  • Using materials with microbial and anti-bacterial properties in your next device
  • Navigating the decision matrix to narrow your selection criteria (design parameters, physical properties, sterilization, etc.)
  • Case examples and pitfalls to avoid
