Go to market confidently with the right adhesive, backing, and tape components for your patient-first products.
The work you do makes a difference, and we're here to make it easier for you. With over 55 years in the medical adhesive business, we understand the way skin breathes, stretches, sweats and ages. As your trusted partner in all things skin, we'll help you find the right materials for your product and get your design to market – no matter what development stage you’re at. We'll take the guesswork out of your hands so you can focus on what matters: improving people's lives.
Whatever product development stage you’re at, we’re ready to help you succeed with adhesive and tape components that function well together and deliver patient comfort. Our 3M experts can help you select the best components for your medical device design, from “skin-friendly” materials to aggressive medical adhesives used in the actual construction of your device.
As a microfluidic device manufacturer, you have to ensure the highest possible level of reliability when designing blood glucose strips, lab-on-a-disc/lab-on-a-chip applications and other diagnostic consumables and devices. Patients rely on your device accuracy during pathogen detection, chronic disease monitoring, cancer screening, genetic biomarker detection, and food and environmental monitoring. Give your patients confidence when you design and manufacture your microfluidic devices using 3M's advanced materials and technologies.
No matter how complex or specialised your application is, we want to help you succeed by providing the most compatible components and design for your medical device. Take advantage of 3M's design and technical expertise and choose from a wide range of medical-grade adhesives and films, which can be used within the construction of your medical devices.
With so many adhesive options available, it can be difficult for product design developers to know what kind of adhesive is right for their application. As your partner from the start, 3M can help fill this critical gap and make your material selection process a whole lot easier.
