With many years as a leading manufacturer of medical guide wires, we can support your required specifications or the contractual needs of OEM products. These include ranges from 0.018″-0.050″, PTFE coated guide wires, and multiple lengths. Production runs are available for prototypes to large contract runs and from bulk & non-sterile assembly to single with cleanroom assembly.

Size
Guidewires are available in a variety of diameters, thickness, and lengths, as well as stiffness, depending on usage.

Tips
A variety of guidewire tips are available, including tips with shapes that can be modified by the operator as needed during usage.

  • Floppy – reacts to its environment; can operate in a straight format or fold back to form a “J”
  • Angled
  • Straight
  • “J” – reduces possibility of tissue perforation by the guidewire tip

Steering
External torque devices can be utilized to increase maneuverability.
