Nordson Corp. (Westlake, OH) has launched Nordson Medical (Fort Collins, CO), a new brand designed to communicate more effectively to customers in the medical technology space the breadth of its offerings, which combine Value Plastics' precision plastic fluid components, Micromedics' biomaterial delivery devices, and Avalon Laboratories' catheters and tubing, along with a wide range of services and custom OEM solutions.

"This is a powerful combination that leverages the combined strengths of Nordson's capabilities to help our current and prospective customers become more successful," said Janel Wittmayer, Global Marketing Director for Nordson Medical. "In addition to innovative products, Nordson Medical can offer customers expertise in regulatory compliance, rapid prototyping, research and development, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, kitting, distribution, and much more. The resources of our parent corporation Nordson extend our reach worldwide and will enable us to continue providing the highest level of support over the long term."

"Our Value Plastics operation has been a premier OEM supplier of precision plastic components since 1968; the Micromedics operation has been a leader in biomaterial delivery since 1982; and Avalon Laboratories has been a worldwide leader in reinforced catheter development and manufacturing since 1990." Nordson Corp. acquired Avalon Laboratories in 2014, Value Plastics in 2011, and Micromedics in 2010.

The Value Plastics product line includes more than 4000 fluid management components designed specifically for flexible tubing. Products include quick connect fittings, luer fittings, check valves, bioprocessing fittings, tube-to-tube fittings, threaded fittings, and blood pressure monitoring components.

The Micromedics product line includes biomaterial delivery systems that provide accurate and precise delivery of internal tissue sealants, hemostats, bone graft materials, and other biomaterials required in surgical applications. Two major product lines include FibriJet biomaterial applicators and tips for the dispensing of single and multicomponent biomaterials and the OsteoXpress graft delivery device, designed to mix and deliver allograft, autograft, or synthetic bone graft materials to orthopedic surgical sites.

The Avalon product line includes cannulae, wire-reinforced catheters, and specialized medical tubing. Avalon's polymer solution casting technology provides the ability to add multiple components and varying wall thicknesses or diameters along the length of a medical device. Avalon also offers secondary operations (pad printing, tipping, skiving, hole punching, forming, bonding, custom branding, packaging, and labeling) and subassembly to finished device services.
