Tygon's unparalleled reputation for consistent performance is the result of controlling each formulation ingredient.
TYGON ESTABLISHES THE STANDARD
Since the first open-heart surgery in the 1960s, doctors, surgeons and other healthcare professionals have come to recognize Tygon as the definitive tubing to use with blood in peristaltic pump applications. Today, Tygon S-50-HL continues to be the tubing of choice for bypass procedures as well as for use in numerous clinical, biological and pharmaceutical applications.
Originally developed for use in cardiac surgery, TYGON® Medical/Surgical Tubing's consistent quality provides dependable performance in medical device applications.
With the increasingly complex nature of medical devices used in applications such as chemotherapy, dialysis and minimally invasive surgery, highly specialized modifications of Tygon healthcare tubings have been developed to meet specific demands. While these new challenges have broadened the Tygon family of products, one thing has never changed: the high quality and consistent performance of Tygon tubing.
Readily Bonded to Simplify Attachment
A major factor when selecting a tubing material is the type of component parts to be bonded to the tubing. Effective bonding of Tygon S-50-HL is easily accomplished using a variety of methods including heat, electronic (RF)/ultrasonic, solvent and adhesive. Factors to be considered in selecting the components include security of the bond required, effect on the integrity of the materials to be joined and presence of residues or extractables that may affect biocompatibility. When bonding procedures are not used, mechanical clamps are recommended to provide secure attachment.
