Optinova’s Optinfusion™ IV Catheter Tubing is one of our leading medical product lines as it is a primary product for different standard and emergency healthcare activities. For 50 years, our in-house polymer experts have collaborated with catheter manufacturers to develop and introduce to the market a robust and consistent tubing solution for applications in the field of infusion therapy.
“Optinova is among a few tubing suppliers that has the know-how and expertise required to extrude IV Catheter Tubing from a challenging material like TPU,” said Richard Jokinen, Optinova’s VP Business Line Medical. “Optinfusion™ TPU, FEP and PTFE IV Catheter Tubing stands out for its radiopacity, tight tolerance and reduced ovality.”
Our mission is to provide customers with a full-service extrusion package that allows them to focus on their core competencies. We maintain an open and transparent dialogue with our customers to ensure that we tailor our tubing solutions to your rigorous needs and specifications. Our full-service package includes concept development, engineering, regulatory affairs, polymer counselling, material selection, prototyping, testing and validation, manufacturing, secondary operations, assembly, packaging and delivery.
Besides a full-service package, we also maintain a standard Optinfusion™ TPU and FEP IV Catheter Tubing line for you to ramp up production on short notice. As the world is entering a new normal after having to urgently respond to the pandemic, we are gearing up our production plants for an expected comeback of orders for tubing solutions used in standard healthcare activities. For the Optinfusion™ IV Catheter Tubing line, we are currently manufacturing and shipping from our facilities in Godby, Åland, Finland and Chonburi, Thailand.
Optinova has been in the business of polymer extrusion since 1971. At the time of foundation, we had a small local factory on the Åland islands, Finland. Today, we are managing four manufacturing facilities in Finland, Thailand and the US. We provide advanced tubing components and solutions for minimally invasive delivery devices. With 10 sales offices in all three major continents, we are offering polymer extrusion services to over 1 000 customers across national boundaries.
