Standard Implantable Feedthru Overview
For more than 40 years, the Hermetic Solutions Group has provided unique manufacturing solutions for implantable medical components used in government approved devices that are helping thousands of patients. Our standard hermetic implantable connectors utilize materials with a proven track record of implantable viability and have successfully passed cytotoxicity testing. Leading implantable medical device manufacturers use hermetic connectors from the Hermetic Solutions Group in a number of different applications including: cardiac implants, neuro-stimulators, cochlear devices and more. Our standard hermetic implantable connectors use the same materials, technology and manufacturing processes that make our built-to-order products popular among leading device manufacturers, but these products are quick-turn (either in stock or with greatly reduced manufacturing times) and don’t require NRE investments.
Features & Benefits
Smaller Footprints: The Hermetic Solutions Group’s ceramic-to-metal joining technology allows us to make components smaller without compromising performance. Pin pitches go down to 0.050’’ on our standard products and could go even smaller in a custom design.
7 Shapes, 2 Pin Lengths: The Hermetic Solutions Group’s feedthru range is the widest standard implantable feedthru offering on the market.
Cytotoxicity Tests Available: While all implantable devices must pass tests as finished final devices, the Hermetic Solutions Group’s feedthrus have passed component-level cytotoxicity testing with flying colors. We have submitted two representative feed-thru configurations to the test and both show no reactivity after incubation.
40+ Years of Field Experience: In 1976, our company designed and sold its first 4-pin feed-thru for a pacemaker. We have produced more than 250,000 units of that feed-thru over the years and have manufactured over 1,000,000 hermetic components for use in implantable medical devices.
Testing Protocol: The Hermetic Solutions Group’s hermetic feedthrus pass extensive testing that demonstrate robustness and reliability under extreme conditions.
