B. Braun OEM Division (http://www.bbraunoem.com) will highlight its full complement of medical device contract manufacturing services and components at the 2013 Medical Design and Manufacturing East (MD&M) conference and exhibition, June 17-20, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.

B. Braun (Booth# 3201) will exhibit products and components from several categories: fluid administration and management products, admixture devices, interventional accessories, catheters and custom kits. The booth will feature a hands-on valve station that will showcase the company’s portfolio of valves, including normally closed, low pressure, high pressure, in-line, dual check, aspiration, trumpet and needle-free configurations. The division’s hemostasis products and stopcocks will also be featured.

In addition, B. Braun OEM Division will highlight its sterile Safecan™ Introducer Needle, which now includes CE marking. The Safecan Introducer Needle is designed to gain vascular access for the placement of a guidewire. It features a patented safety clip that covers the needletip upon user activation. The company will also display its non-sterile needle and syringe portfolio.

In the booth, Joel Bartholomew, Innovation Manager at B. Braun, will offer a presentation entitled “Broadening the Scope of Requirements When Selecting Valves for Medical Applications.” The 10-minute session will explain several critical valve requirements that are often overlooked or not communicated with suppliers, but can impact the final product function. A presentation schedule is available at: http://www.bbraunoem.com/theexpert.

The 2013 MD&M East event (http://www.canontradeshows.com/expo/east13/) will assemble thousands of medical design and manufacturing professionals for educational conferences and a 900-vendor exhibition.
