Multi-lumen tubes vary the size, number, and position of lumens or holes in a tube. The lumens provide working channels to perform a wide range of functions including drug delivery, insertion, guidance, sampling, suction, inflation, energy delivery, monitoring, and biopsies. Lumens can vary in size, shape, number, symmetry, and position. Common configurations include:
Single Lumen. The most common of all extrusions, a single lumen tube consists of a single channel that can vary in size, shape, material, and dimension. We can tool a full range of outside diameters from 0.010 to 0.500 and can extrude diameters as large as 1.00".
Dual and Triple Lumen. Biomerics supplies a wide range of dual and triple lumen extrusions in straight and bump configurations. This includes standard profiles such as double D, Y, double bore, bi-lumen, circle in a circle, and tri-lumen. Common applications include dialysis catheters, PICCs, CVC, Ports, fluid management, air lines, drug delivery, cooling lines, and protectors.
Steerable or Guidance Extrusions. Multi-lumen tubes ranging from 3 to 15 lumens are used to build steerable or guidable catheters. The lumens can be used for guide wires, balloon inflation, electrical wire channels, ablation, and drug delivery. Common applications include cardiac rhythm management, venous access, endoscopy, minimally invasive surgery, and angioplasty.
All extrusions are manufactured in our ISO 13485:2003 registered facility under quality systems developed to be compliant with the FDA's Medical Device System Regulations 21 CFR Part 820. To inquire how Biomerics may help with your next project, please contact us or request a quote.
