Biomaterials

Biomaterials are any synthetic or natural material used to improve or replace functionality in biological systems. The best biomaterials are biocompatible and work synergistically with the biological host. The field of biomaterials is interdisciplinary and includes chemistry, biology and medicine. Here you will find biocompatible metals and ceramics as well as a range of biodegradable polymers

We offer a wide selection of poly(ethylene glycol) polymers with various end-functionalities, as well as bifunctional cross-linkers and crosslinking agents useful for synthesizing hydrogels and biodegradable devices.
