Cell carriers for tissue regeneration and biohybrid organs are developed and produced at the DITF. This "tissue engineering" is high technology that is increasingly finding its way into medicine across disciplines. The DITF develop biocompatible devices on the basis of their material science know-how and their long-term experience in process technology, which are optimized for use in the human body.
A prominent example are nerve guides made of biopolymers whose structure and resorbability are adapted to the physiological process of nerve regeneration.
Research and development of the technologies are certified according ISO 13485. This means that all documents that need to be submitted for subsequent approval as medical products are created during development.
