Biomedically Superior Bioactive Glasses with Engineered Nanostructure

Lehigh University, PA, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

A novel engineered nanostructure and method for biomedically superior bioactive glasses are presented here. This invention enables the production of porous biodegradable bioactive glass for bone scaffolds.

Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Unlike any other product in the market, our material can be tailored to meet the degradation rate to match the tissue growth rate of a given patient type.
It has superior cell response, resulting from the optimization of nanostructure that was never considered before in designing scaffold materials.
