We Help Medical Device R &D Leaders

Improve patient safety, device performance, and product profitability

...while reducing multi-million dollar recall risks and last-minute launch delays

caused by lubricant risk. 

Do Either of These Scenarios Sound Familiar to You?

Diabetic pump device challenged by silicone oil lubricant


Your team is excited about the upcoming product launch. Clinical trials, contract manufacturing agreements, device design, all the moving parts are coming together... But then, your medical device starts facing issues such as stick-slip, inconsistent or high forces, dosage inaccuracy issues, device failure, and you've identified the lubricant choice as a potential root cause. 

Find out how we help you solve the mechanical forces problem. 



You've been charged with getting a prefilled syringe or medical device to market, and suddenly, test results reveal sub-visible particles, protein aggregation, or worse, changes in the efficacy of the drug.

If you haven't yet run into a lubricant issue,

the worst thing you can do is to wait for something to go wrong.

Tribofilm has patented two next-generation coating technologies that offer the industry options when
silicone oil does not meet requirements: TriboGlide-DS® and TriboLink-Si®.

TriboGlide-DS® and TriboLink-Si® were developed with support from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (Small Business Innovation Research grants), in consultation with medical device companies struggling with lubricant-triggered forces and particle problems.
