About RUA Life Sciences

The RUA Life Sciences group was created in April 2020 when RUA Life Sciences Plc (formerly known as AorTech International Plc) acquired RUA Medical Devices Limited to create a fully formed medical device business. RUA Life Sciences is the holding company of the Group's four trading businesses, each exploiting the Group's patented polymer technology.

Our vision is to improve the lives of millions of patients by improving and enabling medical devices with Elast-Eon(TM), a long-term implantable polyurethane.

Whether it is licensing Elast-Eon(TM), manufacturing a device or component or developing next generation medical devices, a RUA Life Sciences business is pursuing our vision.

Elast-Eon(TM)'s biostability is comparable to silicone while exhibiting excellent mechanical, blood contacting and flex-fatigue properties. These polymers can be processed using conventional thermoplastic extrusion and moulding techniques. With over 7 million implants and over 14 years of successful clinical use, RUA's polymers are proven in long-term life enabling applications.

The Group's four business units are:

 RUA Medical :       End-to-end contract designer and manufacturer 
                      of medical devices and implantable fabric specialist. 
 RUA Biomaterials:   Licensor of Elast-Eon(TM) polymers to the medical 
                      device industry. 
 RUA Vascular:       Commercialisation of large bore polymer sealed 
                      grafts and soft tissue patches. 
 RUA Structural      Development of polymeric leaflet systems for 
  Heart:              heart valves.
