Advances in biomedical equipment, systems and materials are opening new opportunities to create custom made biomedical coatings for the medical industry that have previously been unavailable or too expensive to consider developing for commercial applications.
Medical Device Product Development
Creating innovative medical devices that align with current regulations and best practices can be difficult. Custom made products can be time consuming and expensive to execute. With an individual and personalised design to achieve the desired outcome, tailor-made products can require extensive time and research to manufacture. However, with the use of biomedical coatings, medical device companies can alter the properties of their devices to suit their specific manufacturing and performance needs.
TekCyte is one medical manufacturing company that is leading the field in tailor-made coatings for a variety of applications to assist with an array of biomedical needs. Using the latest technologies, TekCyte can tailor-make coatings for medical devices and biomedical companies to create novel products for an increasingly competitive commercial landscape.
Custom Made Smart Health Devices
Our custom design advanced coatings that can significantly influence the behaviour and interaction of cells and living tissue with surfaces, enables us to develop any bioselective application. Once we know the nature of the desired cellular interaction with a natural or synthetic material, we can work with you to create a bioselective surface coating that performs as you would like it to. Our knowledge of the biomedical regulatory environment means that our processes are scalable and can meet international standards of quality and consistency.
Polymer coatings can be designed to enhance cell growth on the surface of many materials. This can be achieved by applying various polymer coatings alone or designing polymer coatings that allow the integration of cell-promoting biological molecules into the polymer coated surface.
Coatings can be created with specific chemical groups for rapid conjugation of biological molecules to a surface. Conjugated molecules can then be used for a range of biological applications, such as capturing target cells specifically on a treated surface.
Polymer coatings can be developed that encourage specific cells to adhere to surfaces that would not normally adhere. These surfaces can be used for extended periods (e.g. months) under culture conditions or submerged in aqueous environments.
When a very low background of non-specific binding is important; combine TekCyte’s BIOINVISIBLE™ coating with a cell capture molecule. Antibodies or aptamers can be conjugated directly onto our BIOINVISIBLE™ coating, to create a low binding surface that will only capture the cell of interest.
Coatings can be designed to manipulate the level of attachment of cells to a surface for specific conditions or environments.
Surface coatings can also be designed to reduce the adhesion of cells, proteins and/or microorganisms to the surface of a material, i.e. low-binding surfaces or low-fouling surfaces.
Custom Medical Device Contract Manufacturing
With its knowledge of medical manufacturing requirements, TekCyte takes a collaborative approach to partnering with medical device development companies to enhance their products. Working with national and international companies our technologies will allow the healthcare sector to offer better treatments and improved outcomes for its patients.
TekCyte has coating technologies with patents granted in Australia, United States, Europe, Japan and China, such as BIOINVISIBLE. It can create and test new biologically functional coatings for its customers or offer its own technologies, under license to create commercially-scalable custom made products. TekCyte offers this service on a project basis to suit the specific needs and requirements of the client company. This is a win-win situation for medical device and biomedical manufacturers.
This is a win-win situation for medical device manufacturers. TekCyte offers medical coating services to the market, with the expertise to create commercially-scalable custom made products
