Objet improves biocompatible 3D printing material

Objet has introduced MED610, a 3D printing material that combines biocompatibility with dimensional stability and clear transparency.

This makes it useful for poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) simulation and a range of medical and dental applications, such as customized surgical guides, according to the company. In addition, the material's transparency provides improved visibility of soft tissues during medical and dental procedures.

The material is ideal for prolonged skin contact of more than 30 days and mucosal-membrane contact of up to 24 hours, according to Objet. It has five medical approvals according to the harmonized standard ISO 10993-1: cytotoxicity, genotoxicity, delayed type hypersensitivity, irritation, and USP plastic class VI.

MED610 is also manufactured under the ISO 13485:2003 certification, which specifies that every batch of the material undergoes biocompatibility conformity testing, including gas chromatography-flame ionization detector (GC-FID) analysis before it is packaged.

MED610 can be used on all Objet Connex and Eden 3D printers. Existing customers can use this material following a software upgrade.
