Adam Spence, a Spectrum Plastics Group Company, and Biocoat, Inc. have entered into a strategic partnership that will allow Adam Spence to offer complete reinforced catheter shafts with hydrophilic coatings resulting in a streamlined approach to the market for customers.
“Biocoat has deep experience in the application of low friction hydrophilic coatings for catheters used in the cardiovascular, neurovascular, peripheral vascular, and structural heart markets,” said Steve Maxson, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Adam Spence, A Spectrum Plastics Group Company. “The collaborative partnership will enable Adam Spence to offer Biocoat’s HYDAK hydrophilic coating technology with our braided and coiled catheters and delivery systems.”
This partnership leverages the close geographic proximity of the two organizations. Braid and coil reinforced delivery systems will be developed and manufactured at Adam Spence in Wall, New Jersey. Biocoat will apply and test its low friction HYDAK topcoat at its nearby Horsham, PA facility. The two organizations will work seamlessly to provide expertise in coated delivery systems from development through full commercialization.
“Biocoat is excited to be working with Adam Spence and collaborating to provide a seamless solution for delivering hydrophilic coatings for their braided and coiled catheters and delivery systems,” said Jim Moran, president and CEO at Biocoat. “Our unique Hyaluronic (HA) hydrophilic coating provides superior lubricity and durability with the benefit of low particulates.”
