Sparkling clean kidneys

Dear Sir or Madam,

Removing larger kidney stones is no longer a challenge. However, it is more difficult with small fragments, because they are not easy to grab. A two-component gel can help in such cases. You can find out more about the mediNiK gel, which has recently been approved for the medical market, in the interview!

Enjoy reading!

Kidney stones are a widespread disease. In order to be able to reliably remove even the smallest remnants of them, Purenum GmbH, a spin-off of Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanved Materials IFAM, developed a gel that encloses small fragments and can then be removed without leaving any residue. This year, the product mediNiK was certified and is thus ready for the market.

Luxinergy is an innovative Austrian technology company that specializes in the development of biocompatible resins and large-format 3D printers. Its business partner kerkoc extensively tests the materials and 3D printers to determine whether they are a great fit in the orthopedic field.
