Development and manufacturing of electrospun innovative devices

Summary

A French SME providing contract R&D and manufacturing services in the biomedical field and microtechnologies, is working on the development of medical devices for tissue regeneration. During 5 years, the company has investigated the design and the manufacturing of electrospun medical devices mainly in the vascular and dental fields. The company is looking for research projects where its electrospinning skills can be used to develop and manufacture innovative medical devices (e.g. NMBP-21-2020).

Partner sought

Academic, clinical and industrial partners are sought working in the healthcare sector and willing to explore, test, design and manufacture new devices based on the electrospinning technology. The company has a strong interest in joining a consortium to develop and scale-up new devices. NMBP-21-2020 call can be an ideal frame for research cooperation : Biological scaffolds for tissue regeneration and repair (RIA).

Description

The French SME stands as an efficient industrial partner to scale-up laboratory developments in order to reach the market. The company can work on the design, the prototype development and the manufacturing in clean rooms. The company is already involved in European projects and is looking for research and manufacturing partnerships where electrospun materials lead to new advanced devices. The expertise focuses mainly on class I to III medical devices, like long-term implants, active medical devices, advanced transluminal technologies and in vitro diagnostic devices. The devices, developed and manufactured by the company, are in all medical fields, like cardiology, neurology, ophthalmology, urology and orthopaedics. The company has been involved in the design, development, characterization, manufacturing and pre-clinical investigations of medical devices made with electrospun materials. For such a purpose, the company has invested in an industrial electrospinning system which controls the temperature and humidity rate ensuring repeatability. Moreover, the system can be programmed for all day and night electrospinning. Ambitious projects can thus be realized. The company has the know-how to electrospin bioresorbable and non-bioresorbable polymers and is always interested in electrospinning new polymers. The company has investigated the drug release from electrospun membranes. Furthermore, the company can electrospun different shapes: membrane, patches, straight tubes and tubes with complex shapes. The company has the know-how to assemble electrospun materials together. Characterization of electrospun materials and devices (fiber diameter, thickness, mechanical properties, in vitro functionality, drug loading and release) can be done. The company can manufacture electrospun materials for pre- and clinical studies. These materials can be packaged in cleanroom prior to sterilization.

Advantages and innovations

• Strong expertise in devices for tissue regeneration, knowledge to design and manufacture medical devices and implants combined to an innovative technology. • Successfully developed devices in a short time frame in the field of tissue engineering and drug delivery systems. • All the innovation chain can be covered from the design to the packaging of the electrospun devices.

Register your interest

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
