The J5 MediJet 3D printer is not just another 3D printer that Stratasys adds to the J5 Series™ of printers – which already includes the J5 DentaJet™ and J55. Unlike the other 3D printers of this portfolio, this one enables a variety of applications from anatomical models, surgical guides to medical tooling.
Due to its multiple materials and multi-colour capabilities, healthcare providers could create highly detailed 3D anatomical models and drilling and cutting guides with approved third-party 510k-cleared segmentation software. However, users who are looking to achieve single-material applications could do so using the DraftWhite™ material.
In addition to its automatic build tray arrangement, let’s note that the 3D printer integrates a patented rotating build platform with a fixed print head. The manufacturer explains that this simplifies maintenance while maximizing reliability.
As far as software and connectivity are concerned, the 3D printer benefits from the support of the latest 3MF file format for simplifying connectivity to third-party segmentation and design software. To enable healthcare specialists to use the platform conveniently, Stratasys has ensured a wide range of certifications:
At the software level, the machine is certified with leading 510K-cleared DICOM segmentation software packages for clinical diagnostic use;
At the material level, all biocompatible materials that the machine can process are certified for limited contact to tissue and bone, and permanent contact to intact skin (ISO 10993) and for breathing gas pathways in healthcare applications (ISO 18562), not to mention that MediJet models can also be sterilized using Steam, Gamma and EtO methods specific to the print material.
Last but not least, due to ISO 13485 certification ensure a reliable design and manufacture of medical devices.
“For small to midsized hospitals, we’re enabling access to models and guides with a medical-specific 3D printer that is office-friendly and affordable, while ensuring sterilization is easy so you can bring models right into the operating room with you,” said Stratasys’ Healthcare Vice President Osnat Philipp. “We also believe the J5 MediJet printer can help medical device companies bring new innovations to market faster by providing models for benchmark testing of medical devices and for product demonstrations with models showing the actual pathologies the devices are meant to treat.”
