GrindDC needs to study the biocompatibility of various materials to support it's work developing Implants. There is a large body of academic literature about the safety of many materials, however without in house (or professional) testing of the specific materials to be implanted we cannot account for changes in:
- manufacturing quality
- additives to commercially available polymers (plasticizers / lubricants)
- the effect of various methods of sterilization to be performed locally
Our initial goal is to generate useful safety and biocompatablilty data about commercially available or locally-made biomaterials. Continuing efforts will be focused on using this data to evaluate and refine these materials for safe human implantation.
