Rege­nerative Bio­mate­rials

For clients in the medical technology and biomedicine fields, we conduct R&D studies and offer a suite of services.

The focus of the Group Regenerative Biomaterials is on:

  • Biomaterial processing, e.g. applying bioprinting, electrospinning, application-specific coatings and drug delivery systems
  • Physicochemical analyses, such as surface characterization, degradation and release studies
  • Biological studies on interaction of biology and materials, including biocompatibility, cell adhesion, antimicrobial activity and activation of immune cells
