The BiostructureMatrix bioabsorbable scaffold has a "felt-like" structure created by a carding and needle-punch process, which tightly integrates non-woven polymer fibers into a cohesive, felt material. These non-woven structures provide greater surface area than many biomedical textiles, and demonstrate customized material performance through their ability to encourage cellular in-growth, specific spacing, controlled layer thickness, material integrity, and controlled absorption profiles.
| | We provide BiostructureMatrix scaffolds composed of PGA, PLLA, PLGA, and a variety of custom polymer fibers and blends, upon request. All BiostructureMatrix materials are biocompatible and have differing degradation profiles ranging from less than 30 days to 1 year. BiostructureMatrix scaffolds can be engineered to a wide variety of sizes and shapes. We typically provide them in sheets, tubes, and discs (see below). Additionally, if you have other ideas for shapes or sizes in mind, please send an inquiry.
