Biomerics specializes in the development of custom urethanes and engineered polymeric materials for the medical market. In many situations, biomedical engineers discover they do not have the required material building blocks to develop innovative proprietary devices. Additionally, engineers find that the large plastics and chemical conglomerates are either not willing or able to produce medical grade materials, continuously obsolete materials, restrict the use of materials, and/or do not understand the regulatory and quality requirements of the medical industry.
At Biomerics we have built our business around providing solutions to these unmet needs. Our business model, production processes, regulatory services, and development capabilities enable us to build tailor made polymers for our customers. Our polymer chemists participate as trusted partners on our customers' device development teams to develop and validate the medical grade polymer or device. We have a detailed understanding of the FDA requirements including ISO 10993 biocompatibility.
Biomerics has active research and development activities to solve unmet TPU needs in the following areas:
- Improved biocompatibility
- Antimicrobial solutions
- Improved chemical resistance
- Improved mechanical properties (burst, tear, flow)
- Anti-thrombosis solutions
- Anti-restenosis solutions
- Improved radiopacity
Biomerics understands that material technology and innovation can be the driving technology in device development. Accordingly, we partner with customers to develop proprietary and exclusive materials that protect our customers' intellectual property and trade secrets. Please see our laboratory capabilities, compounding capabilities, and wide range of materials to see how Biomerics may partner with you on your next innovative medical device.
