Friction Test System for Medical Devices

A compact versatile instrument for measuring lubricious coating performance on medical devices

Harland Medical Systems offers a compact, versatile instrument specifically designed for measuring lubricious coating performance on medical devices such as catheters, guidewires, pacing leads and other products.  The FTS friction test system measures both surface friction and coating durability by drawing the test sample between two silicone rubber pads clamped at a programmable force.  The FTS is an ideal surface property measurement tool for coating development, quality control and competitive product testing.

For years, the “pinch test” method has been the standard for measuring the performance of lubricious coatings. The FTS 6000 is a versatile instrument that makes creating, running, and analyzing these tests simple and fast. The FTS system quickly leads you through setting up a test protocol, storing the protocol in memory, running the test sample, and analyzing the results.
