Our polymers and resins are being used in advanced biomedical devices, from artificial joints to delicate devices that improve the function of impaired critical organs such as the brain and the heart. What makes DSM truly unique in this area is the convergence of our expertise in materials and life sciences. The result? Biomedical products that interact with the body safely over increasingly longer periods, and that in some cases are designed to be gradually absorbed by the body..
Our science extends to drug delivery devices - implantable ‘drug depots’ made of re-absorbable polymers that release medication gradually over time in specific parts of the body. We also make biocompatible materials that enable medical device companies to design and produce functional prototypes of their products within days.
