Vosfox Medical offers contract manufacturing services, such as 3D printing in cleanrooms of Medical Devices or components. Printing can be done inside an ISO Class 7 cleanroom or in a clean but uncontrolled production space. When you are not sure 3D printing works for you, we offer test prints for a small fee, or we can try low-volume injection moulding.
We make medical devices and components using the following 3D printing technologies, but we can add other technologies for your project.
- Stereolithography (SLA)
- Solvent cast 3D printing
- Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) or also called fused filament fabrication (FFF)
3D-Printed medical devices
Below are examples of product types we could print, but surprise us with your new developments!
Vosfox Medical has experience with the Bioprinting of API in polymers. Although we are not yet GMP compliant, we plan to do this. With the right project, we will also expand to working with cells or other biological materials.
Consumables for Medical Equipment
When your product is a medical equipment that uses consumables, you may consider 3D printing these consumables. When you need vast numbers of these parts, you may prefer to use injection moulding. However, when the numbers are a few hundred or even a few thousand per year, 3D printing might be a viable option.
We can print bone implants, cartilage implants or other innovative implants. This can be done with medical-grade filaments made at Vosfox Medical or with the bioprinter using a melt or a solvent.
Models and Surgical guides
Medical models can be 3D-printed in cleanrooms or outside cleanrooms with an SLA printer, making smooth, nice-looking models. However, if you require a bone model that needs to act as a bone (can be cut with a saw or screws placed), you can use the FibreTuff material.
Surgical guides can be 3D-printed in cleanrooms with the SLA printer using medical-grade resins. with SLA prints with high accuracy can be made, but the choice of different materials are limited. The resins that we work with can be sterilized using gamma, ETO or steam sterilization, and they were tested on cytotoxicity, sensitization and irritation according to ISO10993. We produce the guides in a cleanroom and package them in a sterile barrier pouch.
FibreTuff s a composite material with bone-like properties and excellent drill and screw retention. It can be cut with a saw or mounted with screws. The material is biocompatible. It has passed the USP Class VI testing.
FibreTuff models can be autoclaved and made into a model with bone-like radiopacity, making the material suitable as a phantom.Read more
3D-printing – from R&D to Production
We can support our customers from the R&D phase to clinical production. We can produce materials for proof of principle, animal and clinical trials, and commercial products. Depending on the requirements, we can do 3D-printing in cleanrooms or in production areas outside the cleanroom.Read more
