Lubrizol Life Science Health’s (LLS Health) precision medical extrusion solutions specialize in thermoplastics and silicone multi-lumen tubing for the medical device industry.


Multi-lumen tubing serves many functions for a variety of medical device applications. The lumens can be used for passage of a guidewire, fluids, drugs, inflation/deflation of balloons, pull wires for tip actuation, housing electronic sensors, delivery of energy (thermal, RF, cryogenic) and many other purposes. 


Multi-lumen consists of two or more working channels (lumens) running the length of the catheter shaft. LLS Health manufactures custom multi-lumen tubing in virtually any configuration. The number, size and configuration of the lumens is limited only by the outer diameter, wall thickness, web thickness and material.

Tooling, Materials, Process and Quality Control

LLS Health designs and fabricates the multi-lumen tooling in-house, ensuring quality control and rapid response times. We even provide quick-turn medical device prototyping for simple configurations. LLS Health employs advanced process technology and comprehensive quality control methods to ensure lumen consistency and patency.
