New methods of sterilization have made customizable implantable silicones a possibility.

This exciting technology advance could allow better sealing, occlusion and repair or support within a patient’s body. Avantor has developed packaging to sterilize the silicone so that the material can be cured in-situ.

Julie Cameron, VP of business development and marketing for the Nusil brand of Avantor, describes the benefits and limitations of the new technology — and how it can be used in the medtech space effectively — in the newest Medical Design & Outsourcing podcast.

Cameron holds a degree in chemical engineering and has nearly 30 years of marketing and commercial experience in the life sciences and silicone markets. Nusil for more than 35 years has been a global leader in medical and space-grade silicones; it merged with life sciences and advanced technologies company Avantor in 2016.
