LISLE, Ill. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Molex Incorporated introduces MediSpec™ silicone cable solutions from Affinity Medical™, a Molex company that specializes in patient monitoring cable assemblies, ECG cables, cable assemblies for electrophysiology and custom engineered connector solutions. MediSpec silicone cable solutions will be showcased February 11-13 at the Molex booth 1746, MD&M West, Anaheim, CA.

“We have extensive expertise in the design, development, and manufacturing of medical cables, connectors and other electromechanical products in our FDA Registered and ISO 13485 certified facilities,” states Bob Frank, general manager, Affinity Medical.

Reusable and ergonomic MediSpec silicone overmolded cable and interconnect assemblies deliver high reliability and performance in medical applications, including endoscopy, ophthalmic lasers, surgical power tools and other operating room instruments. Creating a moisture-proof chemical and mechanical bond between the cable jacket, connector and flex relief, silicone overmolding provides a stronger bond to metal connector components than thermoplastic resins. Incorporating both extruded and tubed-on silicone, the jacketed cables are durable and extremely flexible, while protecting the cable core.

Adds Frank, “The unique low temperature, low pressure characteristics of custom liquid injection silicone molding create a bond against moisture ingress.”

MediSpec products are designed, tested and validated to withstand multiple sterilization cycles by autoclave, as well as by proprietary Steris™ and Sterrad® processes. All materials meet US FDA and global biocompatibility and cytotoxicity requirements.
