Aiming at smart medical opportunities, Murata accelerates product deployment
In recent years, driven by national policies and technology, China's smart medical market demand has continued to grow and the market size has expanded rapidly. According to the "2019 China Smart Medical Industry Market Prospect Research Report" released by the China Commercial Industry Research Institute, the sales scale of China's smart medical market in 2018 exceeded 70 billion yuan, and it is expected that it will approach 120 billion yuan by 2020. The broad development prospects of the smart medical market are attracting more and more enterprises to participate in it. As a world-renowned electronic component manufacturer, Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Murata") responds by providing small, high-reliability products. Development needs in the field of smart medicine.
Murata Medical RFID Solution: Helping the Construction of Medical Internet of Things
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology has the advantages of long identification distance, short reading time, high accuracy, and large data storage. It can provide an integrated solution with only one tag. In recent years, it has been used in medical sample management. , Tracking and other fields have been used more and more widely. Murata is able to provide a total solution of a series of high-quality antennas, readers and software including RFID equipment.
Taking medical device management applications as an example, with the strengthening of UDI (Unique Device Identification) regulations, the serial number management needs of medical devices have emerged vigorously, and Murata introduced RFID tags for surgical instruments in a timely manner. This product is a new type of metal-resistant UHF RFID tag with a volume size of only 6x2x2.3mm. It can be attached to most surgical instruments. It is a small-sized and powerful UHF RFID tag in similar applications.
Surgical instruments equipped with Murata RFID tags
This product uses the metal surface of the object as the booster of the antenna. In cooperation with Nanjing Longdenjie Medical Technology Co., Ltd., it is fixed to the surgical instrument with a special fixing method and high strength. It can withstand shocks exceeding IP 65 level. Attached biofilms that passed the biocompatibility test of Germany TUV and China Medical Device Inspection Center. The product can read information in batches during the closed-loop circulation of surgical instruments for efficient management, even if the surface is stained with blood or wet instruments that have been pre-invaded.
In addition, Murata's ultra-small RFID / NFC tags (3.2x3.2x0.7mm) can also be attached to test tubes and petri dishes to achieve automatic detection, counting, verification, identification and other management, effectively improving the efficiency of blood sample testing and experiments. It can be quickly read even in low temperature and humid environment, and realize fast detection.

Murata medical grade component products: diverse, reliable performance
As an enterprise that uses high-performance electronic raw materials to design and manufacture advanced electronic components and multifunctional high-density modules, Murata has a history of more than 70 years and has developed a variety of electronic component products to fully meet the needs of smart medical Different scenarios and different types of use needs in the field.
Murata's high-density silicon capacitors are thin and highly reliable. They are stable for voltage, temperature, aging, and high capacitance values. They can be used in pacemakers, defibrillators, plug-in nerve stimulation devices, and artificial organs. , Prostheses (artificial heart, artificial omentum, myoelectric prosthetic hand, etc.), life support equipment and other fields are being increasingly implanted in the European and American markets by pacemakers, hearing aids, monitoring equipment, eye implants, etc. Accepted by classified medical clients.
Murata MGSC Series Medical Silicon Capacitors
In recent years, the data communication of medical devices is becoming increasingly popular. For example, patch blood glucose meters, insulin injection pens, nebulizers and other devices that can continuously measure blood glucose values without blood draw can continuously measure the number of administrations, doses, patient temperature and other vital signs, and use mobile devices to make Patients and doctors can observe the progress in real time and understand the patient's living habits. These measured data will be sent to mobile devices via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), a short-range wireless communication technology. Such medical devices not only need to be equipped with communication functions, but they must also be small and long-running. However, the contradiction between reducing the size of the module and increasing the size of the battery has caused the designer to rack their brains. Murata's resonator products meet these conditions with superior performance.
Murata's MEMS resonators for medical devices
Murata's MEMS resonators use MEMS technology to achieve ultra-small dimensions not possible with crystal resonators and low ESR characteristics. This product can achieve good frequency accuracy and temperature characteristics of the resonator without compensating for the initial accuracy and temperature characteristics generated by the active element. It contributes to customers' low power consumption and reduces the mounting area, and is suitable for small and thin devices.
With the advent of the Internet + era, China's medical industry is transforming and upgrading in the direction of intelligence and digitalization. In the future, Murata will provide more and more innovative products and solutions to help the construction of smart hospitals, create a more secure and convenient medical treatment environment, and work with all sectors of the industry to promote the development of China's smart medical industry.
