CVD, Dymax & Keyence Collaborate to Accelerate ECMO Development

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y., (Business Wire) – July 14, 2020 – CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV) today announced that its subsidiary, CVD Materials Corporation (CVDM), will together with Dymax Corporation and Keyence Corporation of America collaborate in an effort to accelerate the development of CVDM’s novel c-VACNT™ Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) platform.  ECMO devices are used to add Oxygen and remove Carbon Dioxide from a blood stream during periods when the patient’s lungs are not performing at appropriate levels.  Typically, they are used during heart / lung surgery, but have recently been used as a last resort for recovery from COVID-19 illness.

CVDM will incorporate Dymax’s UV curing materials and Keyence’s 2D scanning technology for manufacturing ECMO prototype test devices based on CVDM’s patent pending c-VACNT™ materials platform.  This multi company collaboration is intended to facilitate manufacturing for a range of novel ECMO devices for in-vitro and in-vivo tests to document their efficiency and safety.

“We believe this multi company collaborative effort will in the next several months result in CVDM providing our c-VACNT™ based prototype ECMO devices to leading ECMO companies for their internal testing and performance evaluation,” said Leonard Rosenbaum, President and CEO of CVD Equipment Corporation.

Dymax:Our 1405M-T-UR-SC UV curable adhesive that was provided to CVDM is already used in current ECMO device manufacturing.  We anticipate the glue will be successful during in-vitro and in-vivo evaluation.” 

Keyence: “Our latest release in precision laser measurement technology, is the LJ-X8000 series Laser Profiler.  The system was provided to CVDM to help accelerate manufacturing, improve the yield, and to inspect final c-VACNT™ ECMO units.  ECMO manufacturing is another application in the medical field where our 2D/3D scanning technology shows promise.”
