Partnering opportunity

Surface modifications and coating technologies for the medical industry.

Summary

A Dutch SME is a leading developer in the area of medical surface modifications. It's surfaces transform the performance of medical implants and devices for major medical device companies. The company has developed the only known surface that delivers true bone cell attachment for implanted devices cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration. The company is looking to expand business opportunities in the framework of commercial agreements with technical assitance.

Partner sought

The company is looking to expand their business, primarily in the EU. Partners may be industrial and medical device companies who are looking for technological advances in developing new and existing medical devices.

Description

With over 25 years of surface modification experience, the Dutch company develops leading-edge surface technology for medical implant and other medical device applications. A number of proprietary surfaces and coatings that transform the performance of medical implants and devices have found their way into the medical market. The company has developed the only known surface that delivers true bone cell attachement, for implanted devices cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA-cleared). Other characteristics such as antimicrobial or fibroblast prevention can also be achieved using proprietary technologies. The company offers its expertise to industrial and medical device manufacturers not only in surface modifications, but also in product development. With years of experience in bringing medical products to market, they can assist in in vitro and in vivo testing, as well as FDA approval. The company is looking for cooperation in the framework of commercial agreements with technical assistance.

Advantages and innovations

One such surface enhances bone cell attachment, not just ingrowth, to medical implants. It eliminates fibrolast formation around challenging polymers such as PEEK (polyetheretherketone) and generates true osteoblast attachment to a broad range of materials, whether solid or porous. Other capabilities are the deposition of antimicrobial surfaces, preventing biofilm formation on a broad range of interbody devices, such as access ports, pacemakers and surgical mesh. The antimicrobial performance can be tuned over time, which can be up to 9 months.

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.
