3M Medical Materials and Technologies to play a larger role in bringing the next generation of medical devices to life

St. Paul, MN – June 1, 2015 –Somewhere in your neighborhood, a chronically ill patient may be enjoying a more active life – freed from daily doctor visits and constant tests. That’s because her critical body functions can now be monitored remotely from a smartphone app, connected to a thin, discrete patch worn on her skin.

Further from home, imagine a small clinic in some remote corner of the world, where laboratory facilities are primitive or non-existent. Using an inexpensive device that reduces a sophisticated diagnostic procedure to the size of a credit card, doctors there can now accurately identify patients who might benefit from treatment with scarce, life-giving drugs.

A new generation of wearable medical devices, miniaturized “lab-on-a-chip” diagnostic tests and other life-enhancing innovations are being made possible, in part, through the use of technologies provided by the newly-relaunched 3M Medical Materials and Technologies group (formerly 3M Medical Specialties).
