REHOVOT, Israel, October 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing today announced that Guide3D Lab will start offering its dentist customers surgical guides made of the new Objet Bio-Compatible 3D printing material (MED610™). According to Guide3D, the material combines bio-compatibility with high transparency, which makes it an ideal material for the production of highly accurate, customized implant surgical guides.
According to David Kenyan, General Manager of Guide3D Lab, "Using the Objet Bio-Compatible material enables dentists to easily use customized 3D printed surgical guides in the mouth and better monitor the soft tissue underneath to ensure a safer and more successful dental procedure."
Avi Cohen, Head of Medical Solutions at Objet adds: "Objet Bio-Compatible transparent material is manufactured under the ISO 13485:2003 certification, which guarantees fulfilment of comprehensive quality management procedures for the manufacture of medical devices."
"The new Objet Bio-Compatible material is ideal for prolonged skin contact of over 30 days and mucosal-membrane contact of up to 24 hours. 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 each and every batch of the material undergoes bio-compatibility conformity testing, including GC-FID, before it is packaged. This ensures the highest bio-compatible standards for dental solutions requirements" Added Avi Cohen.
MED610 is the second material Objet has created specifically for dental and medical solutions. It joins the company's original Objet VeroDent material, currently used extensively in the digital dental process at dental labs worldwide.
