At Poly-Med, analytical testing has been and continues to be a cornerstone of our key technological advancements in bioresorbable materials. In our formative years, our early developmental work utilized a vast array of in-house testing equipment to characterize, refine, and create our extensive polymer suite. As an added benefit of our years of growth and […]
Electrospinning is a fiber production method which uses electric force to draw charged threads of a polymer solution or melt into fibers with diameters in the nano to micron size-scale. While this sounds like science fiction, it is a process that dates back to the early 20th century and continues to be at the forefront […]
Vertical integration at Poly-Med allows us to utilize our own unique materials for a vast array of downstream processing. We use bioresorbable polymers made in-house every day for custom applications in 3D printing, fiber extrusion, electrospinning, and more! This allows us to efficiently move a unique material from raw material processing into a fully formed […]
Poly-Med has recently been in collaboration with Queensland University of Technology to promote research of our unique, bioresorbable medical grade 3D printing filaments. The latest publication, authored by Mina Mohseni, Professor Dietmar Hutmacher, and Dr. Nathan Castro, highlights performance of these filaments in fused filament fabrication (FFF) additive manufactured (AM) tissue scaffolding. Specifically, this research […]
After publishing a draft guidance document for additive manufacturing medical devices in 2016, the FDA issued its highly anticipated Technical Considerations for Additive Manufactured Medical Devices in December 2017. The latest volume on 3D-printed devices focuses heavily on advising manufacturers on 3D-printing-specific focus areas to consider when developing a new additive manufactured device. The guidance […]
As we come out of the busiest season for every postal worker and mailman, we are reminded of how little thought often goes into the shipping and packaging of all the gifts and products being transported. It can be hard enough for the manufacturer to ship your online order to meet the gift’s deadline for […]
In 2018, Poly-Med will celebrate its 25th anniversary. My father, our founder, Dr. Shalaby Shalaby is considered one of the forefathers in the bioresorbable polymer industry. In the late 1970’s he led an exploratory group on polymers for biomedical applications at a large medical device company. During that time, he was one the lead inventors […]
Poly-Med’s bioresorbable polymers offer customized product solutions when an implant does not need to permanently remain in the body. The key trait for our materials is that they degrade within a physiological environment. Often times, this can be misconstrued to be a variety of degradation mechanisms including surface erosion, bulk erosion, among others. Surface erosion […]
Poly-Med is looking forward to presenting, “Adding Value to Additive Manufacturing, Creative Solutions for Bioresorbable Polymers” to a screen near you. Poly-Med CTO, M. Scott Taylor, Ph.D. continues to lead our innovative work in this space and will be sharing new information the Poly-Med team is learning in this continually evolving field of 3-D printing […]

3D Printing Approaches Overview: 3D printing (additive manufacturing) processes produce three-dimensional parts through addition of material in a layer by layer fashion. Resorbable materials may be 3D printed using a variety of approaches including fused filament fabrication (FFF), selective laser sintering (SLS), and resin-based methods such as stereolithography (SLA) and dynamic light processing (DLP). FFF […]
