About Advanced Medical Polymer For Treating Diabetic Patients

Diabetes care has seen several innovations through the years. One of the important developments is insulin pumps, which for many patients provides an option to the traditional needle and syringe approach to insulin injections. In addition to software development, companies are also focusing on device hardware that is smaller, lighter and made from specialized polymers that provide the necessary properties to ensure a safe and functional product.


High performance polymers have enabled companies to go beyond the functionality of ordinary plastic materials to develop innovative means for treating diabetic patients. Cyclic Olefin Copolymer (COC), a glass-clear plastic resin, is currently used in numerous healthcare applications and has become one of the materials of choice in insulin delivery systems. Physical properties of COC such as high strength, dimensional stability and the ability to replicate fine features are important advantages as parts become smaller and thinner. In addition, COC provides insulin compatibility, high purity, and a favorable extractables/leachables profile which is key as expanding FDA guidelines present additional challenges for device design and approval.


In developing new and advanced insulin delivery devices, COC’s unique advantages have expanded the possibilities for innovative design and manufacturing. This medical grade polymer allows for the miniaturization of device components without the constraints of glass or ordinary plastic materials.


Critical device components such as insulin reservoirs require the use of a proven polymer material. In addition to compatibility with insulin, purity and very low leachables, COC provides excellent moisture barrier and extremely low water absorption; both necessary properties for optimal long-term drug container storage. It features broad global regulatory compliance including USP Class VI and ISO 10993. COC is compatible with all conventional sterilization methods from gamma to steam.
