Lubrizol Life Science Health’s precision medical extrusion solutions optimize the clinical outcome of thermoplastics and silicone double lumen and multilumen tubing for the medical device industry.
Provide Channels to Optimize Management of Fluid, Mechanical, Electrical and / or Energy Delivery for Minimally Invasive Diagnostic and Therapeutic Devices
Double lumens and multiple lumens serve a variety of purposes in numerous applications, allowing for passage of fluids or drugs, as guidewires, inflation / deflation of a balloon, mechanical devices (instruments, stents, baskets, coils, etc.) and electrical / electronic sensors and / or energy delivery (thermal, RF, cryo and UV), as in the case of lead tubing.
Multilumen Tubing Consists of Two or More Working Channels (Lumens) Running the Length of the Tubing
LLS Health manufactures custom multilumen tubing in virtually any configuration. The number, size and configuration of the lumens is limited only by the outer diameter, wall thickness, web thickness and material.
Tooling, Materials, Process and Quality Control
LLS Health designs and builds the multilumen tooling in-house, ensuring quality control and rapid response times. We even provide quick-turn medical device prototyping for simple configurations. LLS Health employs advanced process technology and comprehensive quality control methods to ensure lumen consistency and patency.
Complex Multilumen Configurations
LLS Health’s experienced extrusion professionals understand how to balance medical device design and manufacturability, optimizing customer requirements for performance and cost. Our expertise includes:
- Configurations ranging from 2–20 lumens
