Plastic injection molding for medical devices

Plastic injection molding capabilities for medical devices

BMP Medical is your one-stop for custom plastic injection
and injection blow molding for medical devices.

For more than 40 years, we have partnered with leading medical device OEMs to create custom plastic injection molding solutions in both finished medical devices and components. During our discovery process, we review and discuss certain criteria that will lead to the success of your finished injection molded part or packaged finished medical device.

Our BMP team and OEMs collaborate to develop a mutual understanding of several factors that drive the material selection and the actual injection molding process for each manufactured medical device and/or component.

Some of those factors:

  • Environment
  • Chemical compatibility
  • The complexity of finished part or device
  • Mechanical function
  • Physical load
  • Sterilization
  • Thermal conditions

BMP works with you closely, from prototypes through full-scale production. Working with an experienced full-time injection molding manufacturing partner will give you greater control over the design, from manufacturing through process development. You can also count on high-quality parts for finished medical devices for optimal performance—and you benefit from a lower total manufacturing cost. Getting BMP involved in the development cycle early is crucial in establishing the needed design requirements to help reduce lead time and overall costs.

Our BMP plastic injection molding capabilities include injection molding, injection blow, 2-shot (two-shot molding), and insert molding (overmolding).

  • Injection molding
    Injection molding can be the ideal option for highly engineered, small precision parts that are large-volume and require multicavity options. Several key factors discussed in the discovery process will help to determine if injection molding is the method of choice for your project.
  • Blow molding
    Blow molding can be used to create numerous types of stand-alone hollow parts. A single-constructed hollow piece with shapes can be created uniformly and economically. The overall wall thickness variation is often a critical and deciding factor in using this process or not.
  • 2-shot molding (two-shot molding)
    2-shot molding is a designated process that allows the medical device or component to be molded and overmolded, all within a single cycle. In the first step, the initial shape is molded, and then the remaining open space is injected to provide a different texture and/or color. With higher-volume programs, this process can offer some cost savings.
  • Insert molding (overmolding)
    Insert molding is a great molding option: it can eliminate the need for assembly in some cases, allows for areas of color contrast within the given medical device and or component, and can provide greater design aesthetic to the finished medical device or component.

Plastic Products Catalog

BMP Medical is a quality manufacturer of plastic consumables and plastic products for research and medical diagnostic laboratories. Our products are manufactured to the highest quality standards. We offer a wide selection of products sold through the world’s premier laboratory distributors.

Non-Sterile and Sterile Centrifuge Bottles

  • Available with standard caps for low-speed work and sealing caps for high-speed applications
  • Caps have a built-in gripper to facilitate removal from the rotor
  • Extra thick walls for durability-resistant to most chemicals
  • Wide mouth design makes filling and decanting easier

These precision molded centrifuge bottles are available in polycarbonate or polypropylene. For low speed applications the bottles provide excellent value for large volume/large batch centrifugation procedures. For high-speed work, the easy-to-use Noryl® (Noryl® is a registered trademark of General Electric Company) sealing caps with silicone O-rings enable leak-free processing at high centrifugal forces over long durations. Bottles must be filled to 80% of capacity.

Centrifuge bottles may be autoclaved at 121ºC at 15 psi for 20 minutes. Caps should be placed on the bottles without engaging the threads. Bottles are qualified to the rated g-forces using Sorvall® (Sorvall® is a registered trademark of Kendro Laboratory Products) and Fiberlite® (Fiberlite® is a registered trademark of Piramoon Technologies Inc.) high-speed rotors, tested at 20ºC, with bottles filled to 80% of capacity.

Failure to use the correct rotor cushion or adapter will shorten the life of the bottle and may prevent achievement of the maximum rated RCF and/or bottle failure.

Prolonged autoclaving and reuse may cause stress cracks, crazing or bottle discoloration.

Cytology Funnels Category

BMP Medical Cytology Funnels for the Shandon CytoSpin® Centrifuge BMP Medical Cytology Funnels are the functional equivalent of the Thermo Shandon CytoFunnel®. Fully compatible with the Shandon CytoSpin Centrifuge, BMP Medical Cytology Funnels can be used to deposit a thin layer of cells in a clearly defined area of a microscope slide. The filter card absorbs any excess fluid. Operation is identical to those supplied by Shandon and easy-to-follow instructions are included in each pack. All products sold in case quantities only.

Hemodrop Blood Dispenser

The Hemodrop is designed to reduce the risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens in the Hematology laboratory. To prepare a manual differential smear, a drop of blood needs to be dispensed onto a glass slide from the specimen tube. Simply puncture the rubber stopper with the Hemodrop, and then invert and press gently onto the slide. A single drop of blood will be dispensed and the slide is ready. No more removing the stopper and manually putting a drop on the slide to test blood.

Polypropylene Beakers

Resistant to most commonly used laboratory reagents, including a variety of strong acids, bases, and organic solvents, these high quality polypropylene beakers are the premier choice for scientific laboratory applications. All beakers are transparent for clear content visibility and graduated for easily estimating volumes. Molded-in pouring spouts, and a rolled lip, for a dripless working environment. Autoclavable to 121ºC ( 248ºF).

Specimen Collection

For specimen collection and transport, this system provides disposable products for the convenient collection, delivery, and testing of urine specimens. A plastic cup is provided for specimen collection and the pressure sensitive patient identification labels have ample writing space. The lightweight transport rack is small and easy to carry yet provides space for up to 20 tubes with labels and caps. The tubes are made of sturdy polystyrene and are safe for centrifuging. The flared top permits the use of a midget urinometer ensuring a tight cap fit.
