Ethicon study asserts safety of medical-grade polycarbonate devices

Johnson & Johnson's ($JNJ) Ethicon showed in a recent study that its medical-grade polycarbonate devices have safe levels of Bisphenol A, a compound that can lead to negative side effects. Levels of the dangerous substance fell significantly below caps set by U.S. and European regulatory authorities, according to the study. Ethicon, which uses polycarbonate for its own devices, conducted the trial in response to publicity concerning the safety of Bisphenol A, which can manifest in lower-quality materials. Story
