OEM Services

Our Approach
IST Scientific LLP has a proven commitment to providing innovative and cost effective technical solutions for OEMs, including a range of biocompatible adhesives, films, foils and laminates. These are available in custom-packaged and custom-labelled configurations, sterile and nonsterile, to your specifications, deadlines and budget.

Not only can our OEM customers enjoy their own branding, but IST Scientific LLP will assist you in developing new, bespoke products, to a specific design, shape or size.

Given the close knowledge of your objectives, customers, technical and compliance requirements, the only approach we believe it is possible to take is a collaborative one. That’s why our engineers will work closely with your own technical team to ensure the best possible solution for your application.

We have a long standing track record of confidentiality and integrity, based on the values of our family-run business.

Own Labelling
If, like many of our customers, you require your own branding on your finished product, we can either customise bulk components and semifinished products with your identity, or provide a range of standard print areas for you to apply your own customisation. Alternatively, we can supply a full private label service.
