IME positions itself as a partner over the entire product life cycle of electrospun medical devices. IME can leverage its aggregated electrospinning technology, experience and competences to accelerate the medical device development process, mitigate risks, reduce investment costs and shorten the time-to-market for its customers. With our integral offering of technology, equipment and process development as well as R&D support, prototyping and manufacturing services we aim to enable and realize the envisioned medical devices for our customers.
Electrospinning technology allows and promote cell infiltration within the scaffolds, cells will then deposit the extracellular matrix (ECM). This is finding a lot of applications in the production of medical devices. Its versatility allows to generate scaffolds for different medical implants, especially focusing on the soft tissues.
IME has a long and well established experience in electrospinning, particularly in the field of development and manufacturing of medical devices. Our machines are used to generate electrospun medical devices following the directions of surgeons to deliver a patient based solutions. The possibility to mimic the human ECM opens the way for various medical applications like cardiovascular implants, nerve guidance and regeneration, wound dressing, dental implants and fiber bundle based implants.
