9th Annual UHMWPE Conference Update

This time last week we were getting ready to attend the 9th Annual UHMWPE Conference at the historic Union League of Philadelphia. We were also proud sponsors of the event and our Managing Director; Mark Allen had the honour of giving a keynote speech.

Mark spoke about ‘a new novel method for the manufacturing of highly crosslinked UHMWPE using x-ray technology.’ A topic he is passionate about, he spoke of the latest STERIS development of a new method to create high x-rays which allow sterilisation and chemical change in UHMWPE.

With sustainability a hot topic in our industry and across many industries, this sustainable development is deemed the long term solution to Gamma processing using highly radioactive isotopes.

The UHMWPE Conference was a great opportunity for us to learn more about new developments and network with leaders and pioneers in medical grade UHMWPE technology and clinical applications.
