  • New brand name positions Value Plastics, Micromedics, Avalon Laboratories product lines and extensive global resources more clearly for medical customers

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--()--Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq: NDSN) announces the launch of Nordson MEDICAL, a new brand which more clearly communicates to customers the combined excellence of the company’s Value Plastics precision plastic fluid components, Micromedics biomaterial delivery devices, and Avalon Laboratories catheters and tubing, along with a wide range of services and customized OEM solutions.

“This is a powerful combination that leverages the combined strengths of Nordson’s capabilities to help our current and prospective customers become more successful,” said Janel Wittmayer, Global Marketing Director for Nordson MEDICAL. “In addition to innovative products, Nordson MEDICAL can offer customers expertise in regulatory compliance, rapid prototyping, research and development, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, kitting, distribution and much more. The resources of our parent corporation Nordson extend our reach worldwide and will enable us to continue providing the highest level of support over the long term.

“While the Nordson MEDICAL brand may be new, our medical industry experience spans many years,” continued Wittmayer. “Our Value Plastics operation has been a premier OEM supplier of precision plastic components since 1968, the Micromedics operation has been a leader in biomaterial delivery since 1982 and Avalon Laboratories has been a world-wide leader in reinforced catheter development and manufacturing since 1990. We will continue to bring this deep industry experience to our customers to solve their most challenging needs.” Nordson Corporation acquired Avalon Laboratories in 2014, Value Plastics in 2011 and Micromedics in 2010.

The Value Plastics product line includes over 4,000 fluid management components designed specifically for flexible tubing. Products include quick connect fittings, luer fittings, check valves, bio-processing fittings, tube-to-tube fittings, threaded fittings and blood pressure monitoring components. Value Plastics products find global application in demanding healthcare OEM, research and specialty industrial applications.

The Micromedics product line includes biomaterial delivery systems that provide accurate and precise delivery of internal tissue sealants, hemostats, bone graft materials, and other biomaterials required in surgical applications. Two major product lines include FibriJet® biomaterial applicators and tips for the dispensing of single and multi-component biomaterial, and OsteoXpress® graft delivery device, designed to mix and deliver allograft, autograft or synthetic bone graft materials to orthopedic surgical sites.

The Avalon product line includes cannulae, wire-reinforced catheters and specialized medical tubing. Avalon’s polymer solution casting™ technology provides the ability to add multiple components, varying wall thickness or diameter along the length of a medical device. Customized medical tubing options include single to multi-lumens, coil, braid or hypotube reinforcements, bump tubing, imaging targets, custom atraumatic, tapered and reinforced tips, holes or ports, lubricious surfaces available in a single piece construction. Avalon offers secondary operations (pad printing, tipping, skiving, hole punching, forming, bonding, custom branding, packaging and labeling) and sub-assembly to finished device services.
