Animal Derived Materials in Medical Devices

Animal Derived Materials in Medical Devices

Definition

Animal Derived Materials (ADMs) include any substance derived from the body of any animal, including fat, flesh, blood, milk and eggs.  ADMs are used in polymers to stabilize formulations, enhance properties and aid in processing.  Recent medical device regulatory trends have increased demand for polymers free of ADMs.

Purpose
Provide an understanding of Animal Derived Materials (ADMs), applications in plastics that are used for the manufacture of medical devices, and current regulatory considerations.
