Canon Virginia Partners with PAVmed to Manufacture Resorbable Pediatric Ear Tubes 2020/06/04 13:44:17 PlasticsToday
Medical device company PAVmed Inc. has announced that it will partner with Canon Virginia Inc. to manufacture its resorbable DisappEAR molded pediatric ear tubes. A letter of intent articulates the agreement between the companies to use Canon Virginia’s commercial-grade, scalable aqueous silk fibroin molding process to produce the ear tubes. Initially, PAVmed was machining blocks of silk but has decided to transition to injection molding because, as the company said in a press release, it is “a much less costly and efficient commercial manufacturing process, especially at scale.” Conventional pediatric ear tubes can dislodge and fall into the ear canal, creating a wax buildup that can increase risk of infection. Image was captured from a video, embedded below, provided by PAVmed. PAVmed chose Canon Virginia as its partner for this project because of its wealth of relevant manufacturing expertise and capabilities. “Canon’s extensive experience and expertise in innovative and efficient production methods and its vast state-of-the-art facilities in Newport News, Virginia, make it the ideal partner to develop this groundbreaking technology for the one million children who currently undergo ear tube placement each year,” said said Lishan Aklog, MD, PAVmed Chairman and CEO.
