Product Development

Medical Device and Catheter Design

At Duke Empirical, we use the latest technologies and materials available along with state of the art computerized manufacturing equipment to build reliable and optimized custom designs. We are vertically integrated with a wide range of in-house capabilities which allows us to design catheters that will meet or exceed our customers’ most demanding requirements such as: high torque, push-ability, track-ability, kink resistance and stiffness profile among others.

Our design team offers decades of experience in developing innovative tools for use in the most critical procedures. By integrating a full spectrum of critical processes under one roof, Duke Empirical ensures that the resources, capabilities, machines, and personnel are readily available at all times. Drawing upon our extensive stock of materials on hand, our engineers are able to design, test and iterate new concepts rapidly. Duke Empirical can provide multiple prototype iterations faster than industry standards. Speed, Quality and Innovation are the hallmark traits that set Duke Empirical apart as the leader in the development and manufacture of catheters, tubing and components.

Speed

Duke Empirical’s vertically integrated process capabilities ensure complete control of critical factors and timelines at every stage of the product lifecycle. 
We keep a wide stock of raw materials available in order to bring our clients complete design solutions 2 to 3 times faster than the industry standard. With state of the art materials and technologies at our fingertips, the Duke Empirical team develops and delivers precision tubing and catheter components in the shortest lead times available anywhere.

Quality

The cornerstone of Duke Empirical’s success is our commitment to quality and effective controls throughout the manufacturing process. Our ISO 13485 compliant quality system is a reflection of this principle, ensuring that our materials, processes, personnel, and products are all selected, implemented and maintained to the highest standards of performance and consistency.

Innovation

The Duke Empirical team is constantly researching, developing, and introducing innovative materials and process capabilities that push the envelope of performance. From pioneering the use of exclusive and proprietary resin technologies to implementation of custom designed and built tubing process equipment, our engineers constantly seek and refine ways to ensure that every Duke product represents the state-of-the art in medical devices.
