Wed, 03/12/2008 - 9:46am
Concordia Medical an innovator in specialty fiber based medical implants and scaffolds for regenerative medicine, has announced the first clinical uses of BIOFELT ™, a unique non-woven biomaterial which can readily be absorbed by the human body. BIOFELT is a bioabsorbable polymer fiber scaffold that is highly porous, soft, flexible, biocompatible and enables human cells to grow into its 3D interconnected pores so that new natural tissue can be formed to replace and/or repair damaged human tissues. BIOFELT has been used in numerous leading biomedical research laboratories around the world for various advanced tissue engineering applications in the field of regenerative medicine.
