Making the body better
Biomaterials, by definition, are materials that have been adapted to interact with a biological system, usually to replace or improve a natural function. They can originate from nature itself or be manmade—developed from a variety of materials such as metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites.
Biomaterials are often used in medicine or dentistry in the forms of joint replacements, stents, and damaged teeth restorations. Its applications require a high level of oversight; hence research into biomaterials can be extremely tricky and rewarding at the same time. Through informational webinars and application notes, see how we analyze biomaterials with a variety of tools for different applications.
