Why Medical Sensors Fail, And What to Do About It

As technology continues to advance, MEMS and non-MEMS based medical devices are becoming increasingly popular areas of development.  When dealing with medical applications, it is vital that sensor elements and the overall devices are properly protected.  Parylene conformal coating is one way that manufacturers are giving their devices a higher level of protection, along with increasing the overall quality of their products.


Parylene conformal coating applications for medical sensors and devices include:

* Stents, catheters, needles and mandrels
* Implantable devices
* Electrosurgical tools
* Diagnostics and lab-on-a-chip devices
* Pressure, optical, motion, temperature, and other sensors
* Nanofiltration components
* Medical electronics and assemblies
