DSM Biomedical offers a variety of different medical-grade Ulteeva Purity® fibers for numerous medical applications, including medical devices in orthopedic trauma, medical implants, and other uses in the human body. These medical-grade fibers are 15 times stronger than steel at a similar weight, while maintaining increased flexibility and high pliability.

ColOSSIS™ from DSM Biomedical is an injectable, settable, drillable putty designed for remodeling bones. It offers improved handling in preparation and delivery and can be mixed with saline, blood, and bone marrow aspirate, allowing for an affordable, fast-remodeling, settable, and drillable biomimetic solution to fracture repair.

DSM Biomedical offers the best-in-medical grade collagen platform, trusted for its safety, performance, and ability to enhance medical device offerings. This fibrous and soluble collagen has been implanted in over 40 million patients over the past three decades. DSM manufactures collagen-based devices with a range of architecture, hydrophilicity, resorption time, and mechanical properties that address a wide array of regenerative medical applications.

DSM Biomedical offers ComfortCoat® hydrophilic lubricious coatings to help improve device performance in a wide range of applications and procedures, including cardiovascular and urology. Hydrophilic coatings are designed to enhance the handling of medical devices such as catheters by clinicians during insertion by maintaining lubricity throughout the procedure.

DSM’s CarboSil® Thermoplastic Silicone Polycarbonate Polyurethane (TSPCU) is a copolymer that combines the biocompatibility and biostability of conventional silicone elastomers with the processability and toughness of thermoplastic polycarbonate-urethanes. The silicone portion of CarboSil® TSPCU works synergistically with the polycarbonate component to improve stability. This medical-grade polymer is highly biocompatible and well suited to be used in many types of medical devices.

DSM offers BioSpan® Segmented Polyether Polyurethane (SPU) as a medical-grade polymer with excellent flex life for superior performance in many different types of medical devices. This elastomeric polymer has shown the ability to withstand millions of flex cycles.

DSM Biomedical offers a proven family of highly biocompatible, medical-grade polymers for use in long term medical implants. Bionate® Thermoplastic Polycarbonate Polyurethane (PCU) polymer family is one of the most extensively tested families of biomedical polymers and is backed by a comprehensive FDA Material Master File.

DSM Biomedical offers medical-grade Aliphatic Thermoplastic Polyether Polyurethane (ATPU) polymers designed with exceptional physical and biocompatibility properties, specifically for lower processing temperatures. The combination of high strength and elongation makes them ideal materials for temporary implant applications.

DSM Biomedical delivers a versatile and tunable hydrophilic polymer technology designed for adhesive applications. This technology mimics the proteins of marine mussels when they bond to underwater surfaces.

DSM Biomedical is a global leader in biomedical materials science with experience in creating advanced drug delivery technologies. Their proprietary bioresorbable polymers provide the foundation that enables biopharmaceutical companies to formulate implantable drug delivery systems for specific applications. This technology assists in the creation of platforms for medication delivery to precise target areas in the body, with controlled release from several days to multiple months.
