SCHOTT, already known to the medical industry as an established supplier of glass op-tical fibers, will show off its Solidur® line of LED products at the Medical Design and Manufacturing (MD&M) West conference for medical device manufacturers. Designed for medical and dental devices, SCHOTT’s line of SOLIDUR products, which includes Ring LEDs, TO LEDs, and Mini LEDs, can be autoclaved and provides bright and precise illu-mination. Apart from the sterilizable LEDs, SCHOTT will also have a selection of auto-clavable housings and medical connectors on exhibit at the Anaheim Convention Center on Feb. 9 through 11 at booth #653, located in Hall E.

SCHOTT’s SOLIDUR is the first line of High Brightness (HB) LEDs that can be autoclaved, and has been tested to withstand up to 3,500 steaming cycles at temperatures nearing 275 degrees Fahrenheit. The portfolio SOLIDUR products include three basic designs that can be further customized: the Ring LED, a TO LED, and the Mini LED, which has a diameter of only 2.3 mm. Each solution is hermetically sealed in inorganic, non-aging housing.

Thanks to their gas-tight housing, the SOLIDUR LEDs are particularly robust and successfully withstand chemicals, corrosion and pressure even with changing temperatures. Therefore, they can be designed into a variety of medical and dental devices, including drills, scopes, curing rods, and surgical equipment. The versatility of SOLIDUR LEDs allows device manufacturers to tinker with new designs and build additional functionality into devices that traditionally lack illumination.

“Medical professionals have challenged device manufacturers to develop technology that targets specific diseases and treatment areas,” said Paul Ludgate, Product Sales Manager at SCHOTT North America. “The SOLIDUR line is our response. Autoclavable LEDs unlock innovative design possibilities, and the customizable SOLIDUR products offer device manufacturers the possibility to integrate a fully autoclavable light source directly at the tip of medical devices, bringing the light closer to the area of interest.

SCHOTT’s SOLIDUR can be adapted to customer requirements for color temperatures, light colors, radiation profiles, and optical properties. Resistors or ESD protection can be integrated into the LED module, as well.

“Finding the right partner is crucial, especially because new supply chain risk management standards will be implemented as part of the updated ISO 13485 management standards for medical manufacturers,” said Paul Ludgate. “With experts in thermal imaging, optical design, material analysis, and testing and inspection, SCHOTT is a collaborative partner capable of helping manufacturers design and manufacture creative solutions.”

In addition to the Solidur LED line, SCHOTT presents its wide variety of gas-tight housings for hermetic encapsulation of sensitive electronics in medical technology. Particularly high require-ments apply here for devices that need to be sterilized with pressurized steam. These include instruments for use in endoscopy, dental surgery, surgical navigation, spectrometry and pulse oximetry. The permanent protection of sensitive electronics from heat and moisture in an auto-clave plays an important role in ensuring that this equipment functions properly.
