Title (EN) VERSATILE, FLEXIBLE AND BIOCOMPATIBLE ELASTOMERIC MICROTUBES
(FR) MICROTUBES ÉLASTOMÈRES POLYVALENTS, SOUPLES ET BIOCOMPATIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a flexible polymer-based microtube having an inner diameter of about 4 μm to about 1000 μm and a variable outer diameter, wherein the cross- sectional shape of the microtube can be, for instance, circular, rectangular, square, triangular, elliptical, star or irregular. The present invention also relates to a method of making the flexible microtube and devices incorporating the flexible microtube.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un microtube souple à base d'un polymère ayant un diamètre intérieur d'environ 4 à environ 1000 µm et un diamètre extérieur variable, la forme en coupe transversale du microtube pouvant être, par exemple, circulaire, rectangulaire, carrée, triangulaire, elliptique, en étoile ou irrégulière. Un procédé de fabrication du microtube souple selon l'invention et des dispositifs le comprenant sont en outre décrits.
