Biomedical Materials

In support of implantable technologies as diverse as cardiovascular devices, orthopedic implants, tissue regeneration scaffolds, and wound management systems, we offer you a proven family of resorbable polymers – supported by years of expertise across everything from contract manufacturing to custom synthesis.

When it comes to biomedical and resorbable polymers, our track record stretches back to the 1960s.

Today, our state-of-the-art GMP production, research and QA/QC facilities make us one of the most reliable large-scale (yet independent) partners to the industry.

Our PURASORB® family of resorbable polymers can be produced in batch sizes of 5kg up to over 100kg – across a broad range of different specifications. Our R&D laboratory includes a 2kg scale pilot facility, as well as a variety of equipment dedicated to the development and support of polymer compositions.

But our expertise isn’t limited to manufacturing: We also provide extended analytical services and analytical method development and validation.

Quality Resorbable Polymers for Medical Implant Devices and Controlled Drug Delivery Formulations

We maintain cGMP quality systems compliant with ICHQ7 as the basis of our processes and analytical methods.

A Certificate of Analysis is provided with every batch we produce, showing the analytical data determined in our quality control laboratory (with additional analytical data available on request).

We have ISO-9001:2015 certified, dedicated manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and the Netherlands. All our polymers and monomers are covered with a Device Master File (MAF 1961) and/or Drug Master Files (DMF 21817) & (DMF 31084) filed with the FDA.

Most importantly, we allow customers to see this for themselves: They audit our facilities on a regular basis.

Collaborating with like-minded partners allows our customers to make conscious choices, so they can develop better, more sustainable innovations and products, based on renewable resources. We use our core technologies to make existing products even better for customers, or enter adjacent markets with current product lines, as well as developing revolutionary technologies that have never been seen before.

It is important to keep the end-market at the front of mind, ensuring connections are made with the right potential partners throughout the value chain – to create the best chance of a breakthrough and make a real difference.

For us, it’s clear that choosing the right partner is only the first stage. That’s why Corbion applies its innovation stage gate process – a step-by-step process of assessment of key milestones and market viability at every project stage. This ultimately enables us to progress only the best projects from lab stage to demo phase, and all the way to industrial scale manufacturing – saving valuable time and money. This is particularly relevant to large programs such as  2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA), a potential replacement for purified terephthalic acid (PTA), used to create PEF as a new bioplastic for packaging like films and bottles. Our rigorous approach is helping assess the scale-up of its production, from pilot to demo scale, as well as validate the quality and consistency of the product when it is produced in larger amounts.

Championing collaboration
Take our 50/50 joint venture with Total for the production and marketing of the bioplastic polylactic acid (PLA). Together, we are commercializing a high-performance PLA resin that can be used to create bioplastics for a wide range of applications – from (degradable) food packaging to touchscreen computers and durable automotive components.
