DSM makes the exceptional possible

DSM is the leading medical device materials development and manufacturing partner in the world. Medical device manufacturers know they can obtain the most advanced and trusted materials and technology from DSM, along with unparalleled expertise and innovation. Many partners rely on us to help develop solutions by improving on current technology or creating something entirely new.

DSM Biomedical has been working with medical device companies for over 25 years. By offering the broadest portfolio of biomaterials and process manufacturing in the industry, we help our partners increase the performance of each medical device. 


We do much more than provide biomaterials to our customers. We offer a broad range of services with a complete product development process - from bench to market. DSM works with customers to create new materials, technologies, devices and manufacturing processes for products under development now, and in the future.

Our capabilities include material custom synthesis, custom tooling and medical device research and development. Concept and feasibility testing, verification and validation testing, device fabrication and assembly, packaging and sterilization, and regulatory filing and clinical trial support are available components of our research and development programs. 

Innovation means producing the most advanced biomaterials in the world. Our history of innovation in material design and production is unequaled. We lead in the areas of passive, active and regenerative biomaterial technology, including biomedical polyurethanes, ultra high molecular weight polyethylenes, resorbable polymers, bioceramics, collagens, extracellular matrices, silicone hydrogels, coatings and drug delivery platforms.

Advanced biomaterials meet growing trends

Our advanced materials are used by medical device and pharmaceutical companies developing products that address many growing trends in medicine, from treating an aging population to caring for a more active one — meeting the need for safer, less invasive procedures that are also more cost-effective. 

Our innovations allow clinicians to provide better and less painful procedures, more targeted treatments, quicker recoveries and a better quality of life for patients.

DSM Biomedical has established a leadership position in the medical market, built on our longstanding success in biomaterials used in medical devices that help improve people’s lives around the world.
