Through our proven engineering and manufacturing of catheters used in cardiac ablation, our partners trust us to design and produce femoral, transseptal, jugular, and subclavian catheters to treat arrhythmia-causing tissue.
Confluent Medical offers a complete platform of steerable guide catheters used for cardiovascular access, electrophysiology, interventional cardiology devices, RF ablation, and transapical access. Our portfolio includes various designs for difficult anatomy to help provide control, visibility, and exceptional balance that enables users to maneuver through difficult anatomy and stenosed lesions.
Our balloon catheter manufacturing capabilities span an extensive range of expertise from balloon expandable stents, balloon extrusion, balloon design and balloon forming, to testing and inspection. We have a substantial balloon manufacturing capacity with clean room facilities, plus an array of state-of-the-art balloon forming equipment. Our highly skilled balloon design, development and manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, and trained operators ensure the highest balloon quality and optimized production.
With more than 20 years of experience, our rapid prototyping experts translate your engineering drawings into physical prototypes. We utilize our existing catheter manufacturing processes to produce prototypes that our customers can use in bench and testing models.
