miniaturization
The drive to miniaturize reflects the desire for minimally invasive procedures and for appropriately sized pediatric products. Tubes with micro-miniature dimensions have the potential to considerably reduce trauma and risk, particularly for pediatric patients.

Microspec specializes in micro-extrusions. We have extruded tubing with an outside diameter as small as 0.004 inch (0.1 mm) and multi-lumen extrusions as small as 0.012 inch (0.305 mm). In addition to micro-sized multi-lumen extrusions, Microspec extrudes multi-lumen bump tubing as small as 1.9 French.
