Do you work in the life sciences?  Have you faced challenges like these?

  • “Polymers… I don’t understand them but I can’t live without them.”
  • “I am looking to manufacture a device to be used in the life sciences.  What polymer properties are most important?”
  • “If I change to a different polymer, will my product behave the same?”
  • “If I modify the manufacturing process or surface features, will my device still perform as intended?”
  • “This piece of plastic is considered a Class II Medical Device?!”

If you work in R&D, product development, engineering or in any kind of laboratory environment, you are probably asking yourself (or me!) the same kind of questions. Even with years of education and experience, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the choices that polymers present.

What isn’t easy is getting the specific answers you need.  Oh, the answers may be “out there,” but do you have the time to research them and vet them to be sure they apply to your situation?   That’s why I created this seminar, “Polymeric Materials in Life Sciences: Creating Vision Across Lifecycle.”  I want to give the busy life sciences professional or graduate student an easier strategy for identifying and answering questions that undoubtedly arise.

After attending this seminar, you will learn how to effectively address challenges and opportunities with polymers.  By identifying your requirements you will come to understand how they translate across material selection, production, and product performance. I’ll be using actual case studies to illustrate these key concepts. Together, we’ll explore:

  1. How each step in a silicone foam’s lifecycle can influence product performance.
  2. How surface properties of cell culture containers can impact culture success.
  3. How an in-depth analysis of the lifecycle of rubber septas and stoppers can help in preventing potentially harmful contamination.

Don’t miss this unique seminar, tailored toward professionals and graduate students in the life sciences.  You will learn exactly what you need to know to develop a comprehensive vision for polymeric materials in life sciences throughout the life cycle — from raw materials to functional component.
