Biomaterials Laboratory

Function

The Biomaterials Synthesis Laboratory at iNANO is used for manufacturing implantable devices. It is equipment with rapid protyping for bioplotting of hydrogels thermoplastic polymers (degradable and non-degradeable).

The system is capable of processing free form composite materials. Fiborous materials as sheets and cylindrical structures can be processed by electrospinning and lyophilization.

The laboratory includes areas for wet chemistry for the synthesis of polymers and porous systems. Analysis of polymer chemistry and morphology through rheology, FTIR, HR SEM, EDX, AFM is available through the infrastructure at Department of Physics and Astronomy and at Department of Chemistry.

Work in this lab is carried out in close collaboration with the ElectroMed Laboratory.
