Lubricious surfaces are a critical feature of every minimally invasive device. Low friction lumens allow devices to readily access tortuous anatomy and tight spaces with a minimum of force.
Spectrum Plastics Group has decades of experience in manufacturing minimally devices and offers a range of lubricious catheter materials that are fast, reliable, and low friction.
