altBayer MaterialScience (Pittsburgh, PA) offers Baymedix™ CL 100, a lubricious surface treatment for medical devices that gives a durable coating. The coating has demonstrated low coefficients of wet friction, 0.02-0.03, on prototype devices. Directly grafting the treatment onto the surface of the medical device achieves a thin coating of no more than a few microns. It may also be applied to the lumens, or interiors, of catheters, for when one catheter or device needs to be passed through another.
