Boston Scientific is a world leading provider of medical devices. In 2020, the company engaged UL on a piece of consultancy to research gas barrier coatings used in the production of medical instruments. The research resulted in a new technology being developed which has directly led to Boston Scientific Clonmel establishing a nanotechnology coating lab on site with a view to commercialising the technology on multiple product platforms. The consultancy has also evolved into an Innovation Partnership and the project positioned UL and Boston Scientific to collaboration on a submission to Horizon Europe.
“This has been thoroughly ground-breaking work and was a key input into product development strategy.” Boston Scientific Manager Urology and Pelvic Health R&D – Sean Cooney
