Moreover, at MEDTEC Europe, Bayer MaterialScience presented e.g. Baymedix®
brand hydrophilic prepo-
lymers, which are used to manufacture polyuretha- ne foams for medical wound dressings. The foams absorb aqueous liquids and retain them better than conventional foams. They can be combined with Platilon®
thermoplastic polyurethane films, which
are water vapor permeable and allow wounds to bre- athe. One example is Bayblend®
M850XF, a blend
of polycarbonate and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene that is very well suited for the production of housings for medical equipment. This includes primarily surgical instruments, diagnostic equipment and drug administration systems.
primary human cell biology were presented at the annual meeting of the Society of Toxicology by scien- tists from the US Environmental Protection Agency and BioSeek, LLC. The presented findings further demonstrate the value of BioMAP®
