LITRONIK is one of the few suppliers of compact, ultra reliable primary batteries for active implants anywhere in the world. Since 1990 the company has developed and manufactured these high-performance energy sources in a variety of performance ranges, and they feature, among other things, very high volumetric energy and power densities, rate optimisation, low self-discharge rates and high operating safety.
LITRONIK supplies customer-specific solutions as well as standard products to a variety of manufacturers of pacemakers, defibrillators and neurostimulators, both within and outside of Europe.
The electrochemical systems behind the primary batteries at LITRONIK are based on Lithium-Iodine (Li-I), Lithium-Manganese Dioxide (Li-MnO2) and Lithium-Carbon Monofluoride (Li-CFx), and they cover three performance ranges for different active implants:
- High Energy Batteries with Li-I technology for implantable pulse generators, e.g. pacemakers or neurostimulators
- Medium Rate Batteries with Li-MnO2 or Li-CFx technology for implants that require mid-range pulse power, e.g. pacemakers, neurostimulators or monitors with telemetry functions
- High Power Batteries with Li-MnO2 technology for implants that require the highest pulse power, e.g. defibrillators
The batteries are manufactured in special dry conditions with a high level of automation. All processes are MES integrated. Materials and processes are 100 percent traceable.
LITRONIK uses its extensive expertise in electrochemistry, materials science, powder processing, metals/plastics technology, plasma and laser welding as well as various chemical and physical analytical processes in order to continually develop more compact and more powerful batteries and thus to enable ever more miniaturised implants.
LITRONIK is certified according to EN ISO 13485:2016. Every employee is fully aware of the high standards of quality required for life-sustaining implants.
