Hydromer Announces Launch of HydroThrombX Medical Device Coating Technology

CONCORD, NC - (NewMediaWire) - June 5, 2024 - Hydromer, Inc. (OTC: HYDI) (the “Company”), a leader in hydrophilic, thromboresistant, and antimicrobial coating technologies for medical devices for over 44 years, is pleased to announce the launch of HydroThrombX ™, a next generation version of the Company’s current legacy product F200t, a thromboresistant coating well-known in the industry for significantly reducing platelet adhesion and cell mitosis, aiding in the prevention of restenosis.

HydroThrombX product is currently available and being marketed to current and new customers. The product was created to be compliant with the REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) and CE organizations, meeting the European Union's (EU) strict safety, health, and environmental protection standards. 

Mike Torti, Hydromer’s CEO, shared: “We’re thrilled to release our new and improved, NMP-free anti-thrombogenic coating, which ensures greater safety and environmental sustainability. Fully compliant with the latest regulations while still maintaining its efficacy.” 

Any medical device inserted into the body has the potential to cause blood clots which can lead to thrombosis or an embolism. When a medical device coating is thromboresistant, it reduces the risk of blood clot formation which can lead to atrial fibrillation, strokes, or even heart attacks. This is an indispensable attribute in a coating for medical devices such as catheters and vascular implants.

By reducing the adherence of blood to the surface of a medical device, management believes the HydroThrombX technology could improve patient safety and clinical outcomes, while also extending the life of the device.
