F-3000 Application Note

A medical device manufacturer recently turned to Diamond for assistance in designing the connectorization portion of their catheter assembly. As catheters are medical devices that are inserted in the body to treat diseases or perform surgical procedures, the customer required a small connector that was reliable, precise and easy-to-use. The Diamond F-3000™ connector was ultimately chosen due to its size, performance, shutter and push/pull connectivity. All of these features were instrumental in selecting this product and why customers prefer the F-3000™ in many similar demanding applications.
