Adhesives Formulations for Bioinstrumentation Academicians, researchers, clinicians, bioengineers, biomedical engineers rely on bioinstrumentation to measure, analyze, monitor, treat, control, record, investigate, and transmit data concerning physiological and biological factors in living organisms. Custom Master Bond adhesives, sealants, coatings, potting /encapsulation compounds play a definitive role in the design, development, assembly, and manufacturing of these indispensable devices. Our epoxies, silicones, cyanoacrylates and UV/visible light curing systems exhibit a wide variety of mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical resistant properties and offer solutions to complex production problems. Multiple complicated medical dilemmas can be resolved using these bioinstrumentation devices. Master Bond products can offer superior performance, reliability, accuracy, reproducibility, long term durability even when exposed to pressure, flow, acceleration, force, humidity, chemicals, shock, vibration, and wide service temperature ranges.

Master Bond provides an unrivaled assortment of compounds that can be utilized for the construction of bioinstrumentation devices. They are engineered to meet the highest quality control standards. Special grades are biocompatible, USP Class VI certified, pass ISO 10993-5 testing for cytotoxicity and can withstand an impressive array of sterilants such as ethylene oxide (ETO), radiation, steam autoclave, hydrogen peroxide, Steris®, Cidex® and Sterrad®. These formulations can provide exceptional bond strength between substrates with different thermal expansion and contraction coefficients and can deliver superior protection against abrasion and bodily fluids. Additionally, Master Bond’s team of adhesive specialists continuously collaborates with various medical device manufacturers to lower the weight and miniaturize these devices.
