Singapore expo to focus on medical devices

SINGAPORE, July 29, 2018

The Medical Manufacturing Asia (MMA), a specialist trade fair, to be held in Singapore, will help manufacturers of medical device components to introduce their products into the Association of South East Association Nations (Asean) market.

The economy of the Asean countries is developing rapidly. Singapore, with its strong economy and important research institutions, works as the engine of economic development. From the innovation hub with its western character, activities in the markets of the other Asean countries can be launched, said a statement from the organisers.

The event will take place from August 29 to 31 in Singapore, co-located with Medical Fair Asia. For manufacturers and suppliers, this marketplace provides a perfect business platform to present the latest innovations, products and services and network with an international yet targeted audience, it said.

The main topics of MMA are, for example, innovations from micro- and nanotechnology like modules and components for medical technology, lab-on-a-chip technology, inspection equipment and testing services as well as assembly, automation and production technology. Process technology, biocompatible materials, coating and functional surfaces play also an important role, it said.

After successful participations in 2012, 2014 and 2016, the IVAM Microtechnology Network again presents a joint pavilion as a platform for developers and manufacturers of micro- and nanotechnology innovations.

2018, IVAM organises two highlights: A company visit on August 27 and the presentation session “High-tech for Medical Devices” at the fair accompanying forum on August 29. At the joint pavilion, six international enterprises show, amongst other innovations, their sensory and diagnostic technologies.

Ebnet Medical GmbH develops simple, safe and efficient medical technologies for a wide range of medical care applications. They are specialised in puncture systems that deliver life-saving drugs and infusions to patients quickly, simply and safely. Their flagship development project is Swordcath, a system that greatly simplifies the insertion of catheters. They develop products inspired by practice, designed for practice, drawing from many years of experience in various areas of medicine.

As a realisation partner for measuring technology and sensors, InnoME GmbH develops and realises smart products by integrating their innovative and cost-effective sensors into products. These could be applied in healthcare, biotechnology, diagnostics and hygienic monitoring. One of the sensor products is Scitis.

This pH meter is suitable for measuring pH values in cell culture media. Additionally, the firm developed the zenCELL owl, a 24-channel microscope designed for rapid and automated cell culture microscopy. Its compact design and stability, even above room temperature, make it ideal for use in incubators.

SmartMembranes is a leading manufacturer of high-ordered porous materials from alumina and silicon with defined and adjustable membrane properties and structure parameters. Potential applications are found in the fields of filtration, sensor technology and diagnostics (bio-chips). Defined surface functionalisation enable the membranes to use it for micro reactors or electrode material (Li-ion batteries) or rather surface structuring via imprint methods. SmartMembranes manufactures not only membranes on customers’ request, but also develops processes and products around the core business.

Specialty Coating Systems Inc (SCS) will be exhibiting its ultra-thin, pinhole-free, Parylene conformal coatings at Medical Manufacturing Asia. SCS Parylene coatings offer exceptional properties for the medical device industry including, biocompatibility and biostability, controlled thickness, micro-encapsulation capabilities, dry-film lubricity and superior chemical, moisture and electrical barriers. SCS Parylenes N, C, and Parylene HT® comply with biological testing requirements for ISO-10993 and USP Class VI Plastics. SCS also maintains Device and Drug Master Files with the US FDA.

At the fair, also MedWorld Advisors introduce themselves as a healthcare merger and acquisition firm that specialises in helping small to medium size companies from the fields of Medical Device, MedTech, BioTech, BioMed, Dental, Life Sciences and HealthCare to reach their goals.

In their session at the fair forum, MedWorld Advisors will address the best ways to connect with the opportunities created by strategic customers. They inform about the right contract, strategies to obtain it and the appropriate financing or right acquirer, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
