When Natus® Medical needed their echo- screen® III infant hearing screener manufactured  with tight deadlines and zero room for error they turned to AIM Plastics.

Project Outline

The echo screen needed to be highly chemical resistant to endure the rigors of a sterile hospital environment. It also needed to be BPA free due to the proximity of the device to infants.

End Results

The result was a collaborative project that produced the world’s first electronic medical device made from Eastman’s Tritan™ material. The echo-screen III is highly chemical resistant and BPA free. This project also resulted in Natus winning the R&D 100 Silver Award.
