ProPlate® Makes Finalist for Top Ten Most Innovative Suppliers at MN MedTech Week & MD&M Minneapolis Show

Qmed editors have picked the 10 semifinalists for the Minnesota Medtech Week Innovation Prize. Help them narrow down the group to five finalists.

“From an affordable, professional-grade desktop 3-D printer to better coatings and materials to  highly precise welders, there are a wide array of innovations among the 10 Minnesota Medtech Week exhibitors who are semifinalists for the Minnesota Medtech Week Innovation Prize.”

ProPlate has made the top ten finalists for our Vizi-Band radiopaque marker band coating innovation. This is the fourth time in two years that ProPlate has been a finalist for it’s catheter coating innovations at a MD&M show.

Introduced late last year, ProPlate’s Vizi-Band is a patent-pending metal coating process that atomically bonds directly to a catheter, guide wire, stent. It can be applied anywhere along the medical device. Says ProPlate (Anoka, MN): “Whereas traditional machined marker bands are individually installed on catheters by hand, Vizi-Band markers are coated directly to the medical device and this can be accomplished in large volumes simultaneously for maximum efficiency. Where radiopacity requirements are lower, Vizi-Band marker coating can be applied thinner than traditional marker bands are machined, which will impart a performance advantage of a lower profile while reducing material costs. Additionally the risk of dislodgement is eliminated with the utilization of Vizi-Ban.”
