BTG to commercialise new balloon catheter technology:
This article was originally published in Clinica
BTG of the UK, a technology transfer company, is looking for manufacturers to develop and commercialise, under licence, a new technique for making balloon catheters which it claims could improve the quality and performance of the devices. The new technique, developed by Cambridge, UK-based Ranier Technology, uses a robust "forming" method that produces a high-strength balloon while maintaining its softness, flexibility and profile. This will overcome the difficulties of obtaining a consistent yield of high-quality balloons using "blow moulding", said London-based BTG.
