The success of a biomedical material relies on more than an understanding of its basic underlying chemical structure. Of equal importance are the physiological effects, surface chemistry, mechanical response (of viscoelastic), and how it interacts with the surrounding tissue. To properly design around these often-competing effects one requires the type of intellectual capital and experience found at Cambridge Polymer Group. In addition to formulation expertise, we also perform analytical testing on biomedical materials. Our active hydrogel research program has an evolving focus on expanding the mechanical, morphological and surface properties of new and existing formulations. Additionally CPG has developed several formulations of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene stabilized with Vitamin E, a naturally occurring antioxidant, for total joint arthroplasty. Several of these novel materials are available for license. Please use our contact us page to inquire about licensing options.
