A 40 years old experienced company provides contract R&D and manufacturing services in the biomedical field and micro-technologies. The company’s expertise focuses on class I to III medical devices, from long-term implants, active medical devices to advanced transluminal technologies. Devices are developed for a variety of medical applications, ranging from cardiology, neurology, ophthalmology, urology to orthopaedics.
The company has developed for 6 years its electrospinning activity with the elaboration of highly porous materials for tissue regeneration. The company invested in an industrial electrospinning system with temperature and humidity controls ensuring the repeatability of experiments. Moreover, the system can be programmed for all day and night electrospinning, making possible to realize long and ambitious processing projects. The company is able to electrospin bioresorbable and non-bioresorbable polymers and is always interested by electrospinning new biomedical polymers. A variety of collectors are available to develop fibrous materials with different fibers organization (random or aligned) and with different structures such as thin membranes, tubular constructs or more complex tridimensional shapes. Micro-particles or specific molecules of interest can be easily inserted into the polymer fibers and create composite materials with targeted mechanical or drug release properties.
The company can manufacture electrospun materials for pre-clinical and clinical studies, assuring the packaging of the products prior to their shipping for sterilization. The characterization of the electrospun materials and devices (fiber diameter, thickness, mechanical properties, drug loading and release) can be performed to ensure specifications of the devices.
The company recently focused its works and developed a strong expertise in biocompatible fibrous covers for medical devices. The company is ready to share its expertise in the fields of membrane covering and tissue regeneration, and start new work collaborations to develop advanced medical devices with electrospinning.
The company is looking for research and manufacturing partnerships where electrospun materials lead to new advanced devices such as implant coverings, tissue regenerative scaffolds or drug eluting membranes. The company stands as an efficient partner to design, develop and manufacture in clean rooms medical devices based on electrospun materials.
The company has already been involved in European projects about the development of electrospun medical devices such as vascular implants or drug eluting membranes.
