The medical sector has long been an important market for Luxfer, and we are committed to developing new products to benefit patients.
Containment of medical gases: Luxfer offers the world’s most comprehensive range of cylinders for medical gases. Our aluminium cylinders are 30% lighter in weight than comparable steel cylinders and are safe to use around MRI equipment because they are non-magnetic. Learn more about our medical cylinders.
Emergency medical services: Luxfer offers a growing range of carbon composite cylinders that are up to 75% lighter in weight than steel cylinders. These are becoming increasingly popular in emergency medical services (EMS). Luxfer’s L7X® lined composite cylinder is the world’s lightest-weight, high-capacity medical cylinder and has already been adopted by BOC Medical for EMS use. These carbon fibre-wrapped cylinders use Luxfer’s exclusive L7X® higher-strength aluminium alloy. Learn more about our EMS cylinders.
Medical treatment: Luxfer’s MELSorb® technologies are being used in the development of portable dialysis equipment. Luxfer has developed Synermag® bio-absorbable magnesium and is working with partners to develop its use in vascular intervention, skeletal repair and tissue repair.

Medical equipment: Luxfer developed the magnesium alloy used in the world’s first portable, wireless, digital, radiographic imaging device.
