  • Publication number: 20060068224
    Abstract: The present invention provides a halogen coated biomedical device and a method for producing the device. The method generally involves generating a plasma that affects the release of a halogen species from a source. The halogen reacts with the surface of the biomedical device to form a halogen coating.

  • Publication number: 20050261668
    Abstract: A drug delivery device includes a drug core having a pharmaceutically active agent, a holder that holds the drug core and is made of a material impermeable to passage of the active agent; and a tab for attaching the device to eye tissue. A surface of the holder is plasma treated and adhered to at least one of the drug core and the tab. The device is preferably designed for placing in the eye, such as implanting the device using the tab, so the active agent is released in a sustained manner to the eye.

  • Publication number: 20050045589
    Abstract: Intraocular lenses or contact lenses 20 are placed on a lower spindle 34 and held there by a vacuum in conduit 34. Noble and reactive gases 56, 58 are introduced and a voltage is applied across upper spindle 32 and lower spindle 34 to plasma treat one surface of the lens. The lens is transferred to the other spindle and the process is repeated.
