ELUTE Fiber – Pharmaceuticals
TissueGen pharmaceutical fibers are typically loaded with well-known pharmaceutical agents and are ideally suited for woven, knitted, or braided applications in implantable medical textile devices. Typically, these applications require large quantities (in kilometers) of fiber to complete the conversion into a useful medical device.
For finished weaves or meshes, TissueGen refers interested clients to preferred medical textile partners including Biomedical Structures (BMS), who offer extensive expertise in generating these devices. Tailored fiber size and strength are critical parameters because the fiber must be capable of being woven, knitted or braided to provide the mechanical structural support demanded for specific medical applications.
Pharmaceutical fibers are well suited for many medical applications, including:
- Customized drug delivery
- Orthopedic sutures
- Vascular stents
- Small and large diameter vascular grafts
- Dermal wound healing
TissueGen has vast experience loading a wide range of drugs including, but not limited to:
- Aldose Reductace Inhibitor
- Copper Nanoparticles
- Barium Sulfate
- Iodine Beads
