This issue of High-Tech Materials TOE highlights some of the key material innovations in the biomedical industry that are still in their pre-commercialization stage. A micro-needle mimicking the blood drawing concept of mosquitos has been developed to painlessly administer fluids within patients. Another innovation talks about a 3D bioprinted material, which can be used treat wound care and prevent infections.
A polymer film stamping method for cytogenetics has also been highlighted in this issue.
The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials.
The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
