Biomaterial of the Month
Date: January 19th, 2009
BIOFELT is a bioabsorbable polymer fiber scaffold that is highly porous, soft and 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. Concordia Medical's BIOFELT is produced from medical grade polyglycolic acid (PGA) and poly-L lactic acid (PLLA) and can be formed into various size sheets, discs, and tubes. Thicknesses can be specified from 0.3 to 7 mm and the bulk density from 30 to 300 mg/cc. Finished scaffolds are scoured, vacuum-sealed in moisture barrier foil pouches and packed with desiccant.
