Biocompatible colorants for medical uses

RTP Co. (Winona, MN) recently introduced UniColor universal masterbatch and precolored resin products for use in medical devices, medical packaging, pharmaceutical applications, and disposable medical products. Both standard and custom colors meet ISO 10993-1 tests for biocompatibility standards, and were developed for cost-effectiveness and availability from the company?s global manufacturing facilities.

According to Josh Blackmore, global healthcare marketing manager, these pretested color products reduce the risk of failure and the time and money required for resubmitting products for testing. This includes the 18 standard colors that meet tests for Cytotoxicity (part 5), Irritation and Delayed Type Hypersensitivity (Part 10), and Systemic Toxicity (Part 11).

?Adding our standard biocompatible colors to your own USP Class VI resins makes changing colors to refresh a product line much easier,? says Jean Sirois, global color general manager at RTP. ?Using any base resin, customers can choose from our standard colors or custom color, which we then compound together for an accurate precolored resin or masterbatch.??MM
