Polymeric Resorbable Implants
Rescoll’s expertise in resorbable polymers allows us to support the development, testing and validation of a new implant according your specifications and regulatory requirements for medical device.
Using Biodegradable polymer materials such synthetic or natural polymers.
Biodegradable polymers can be processed by most conventional plastics processing techniques, with some adjustments of processing conditions and modifications of machinery. Extrusion, injection molding, freeze-drying process are some of the processing techniques that we can performed to Rescoll laboratory’s to prototype your product.
RESCOLL involved in the ANR Project “CHITOART” :
Chitosan physical hydrogel-based bioartificial vascular substitute
The objective of this project is to develop a tissue-engineered vascular conduit that remains in-situ physiologically functional on the long term, containing the core elements of a vascular tissue. The investigated systems result from the association of different chitosan-based hydrogels. Chitosan is a natural bioresorbable and biocompatible polysaccharide well suited for tissue engineering.
Such hydrogel associations (the ChitoArts) will bring the combined mechanical and biological properties required for the application. The chitoart architectures are specifically designed as templates for tissue engineering, and in a second step will be bio-functionalized with the pertinent cell types to rebuild in a combined in vitro and in vivo approach, multilayered vascular conduits with a resulting tissue organization inspired from natural blood vessels.

RESCOLL involved in the European Project “AnastomoSEAL” :
RESCOLL will contribute to the project performing the following tasks:
- to contribute to the development of adhesion properties (tackiness and adhesion)
- to develop possible material reinforcement and optimization of mechanical resistance of the matrix
- to perform the mechanical characterization of adhesion over inert and biological substrates, as well as chromatographic, spectrometry and themomechanical analysis
- to develop and validate the sterilization process(es)
- to study the final product performance under accelerated aging simulating storage conditions
- IPR evaluation
