Viscofan BioEngineering, a Business Unit of Naturin Viscofan GmbH

Viscofan BioEngineering’s activities are focused on the industrial
-
scale production of
collagens, especially bovine dermal collagen I, and their further development into
products for cell biology, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

As our primary product we have developed an innovative ultrathin collagen membrane
which is not chemically cross
-
linked but exhibits a high mechanical stability and elasticity.
The suitability and superior performance of these films for cell biological pur
poses and as
a cell
-
seeded implant for regenerative medicine has been proven in collaborations with a
multitude of academic partners. Besides pursuing our biomedical research projects, we
offer our collagen products to the Life Science market for research
purposes.

Scale

NEW for TERMIS 2012! Introducing a new test system that enables for the mechanical
stimulatio
n of 3D structures in multi
-
axial tension. World Precision Instruments has
partnered with CellScale Biomaterials Testing to bring to market a revolutionary new
product, the MechanoCulture. This product allows researchers to study the effects of uni
-
axial a
nd multi
-
axial strain on cell monolayers AND cells seeded in a 3D matrix using a
patent
-
pending mechanism. The system is compact, autoclavable, and affordable.

Also on display at our booth will be the MicroSquisher, a micro
-
scale tension/compression
test
system that can achieve force resolutions down to 50nN, and the BioTester, a biaxial
mechanical tester with an integrated image analysis software package that enables
surface deformation tracking.
