Medicine Tissue EngineeringMedical Hydrogel
Our hydrogels are based on hyaluronan derivatives capable of cross-linking made possible to by non-cytotoxic reaction which enables homogenous incorporation of cells and also in situ gel forming. After the process, material is insoluble in water. Selection of derivatives leads to desired mechanical properties.
Hydrogels can serve as scaffolds, material for augmentation of soft tissue or for viscosupplementation.
It is possible to incorporate cells, fibres, micro or nanoparticles, or active chemical/biological substances into their structure.
Hyaluronan hydrogels and their degradation products are fully biocompatible and biodegradable.
