DSM in Medical

Medical Collagen Supply

Looking for research or sample materials for medical applications?

DSM Biomedical develops and supplies medical grade collagen for use in a wide range of research and medical device applications. With our novel processing methods, we can produce custom architectures to meet the specific performance characteristics of end-use products. DSM is the chosen partner for many teams that need access to high quality biomaterials, including:
  • Universities
  • Research institutes
  • Start-up development teams 

Why consider collagen?

DSM produces animal derived collagen for use in a wide range of medical devices. Because of its many appealing characteristics, collagen has a long history of use in medical devices ranging from hemostats and surgical meshes to bone void fillers.

Type I Collagen is ideal because, when purified properly, it is biocompatible, can be provided in a variety of shapes and sizes, and acts as a temporary scaffold for tissue regeneration.

Collagen processing technology and controls

The difference between DSM's formulations is the degree to which the collagen fibers are dissociated. With our purified collagen processing technology we have the ability to process collagen in fiber, fibril and soluble collagen forms. From raw materials to devices, our slurry and solution processing allows us to make products with custom-tailored properties for your application.

Our manufacturing facility is ISO 13485 and MDSAP certified and our collagen is processed in certified ISO Class 8 cleanrooms. With routine audits and testing, we ensure the material always meets government and customer specifications. 

Custom collagen configurations

Our collagen processing allows us to provide products in many different forms including sheets, putties, injectables, gels, coatings, fibers or powders to create resorbable medical devices.
