Popular Products

Offering Materials for Medical Devices: Biohastalex®

We supply Biohastalex®, a graphene composite that can be produced as thin films in a number of thicknesses and film size.

The applications of Biohastalex® include surgical gauzes and, more widely, as a replacement for materials like GORE-TEX as it is extremely light and flexible. It is an incredibly strong and flexible product, and can come as gauze-like material that is biodegradable and therefore a potential replacement for many plastic-based materials. It is also possible to modify the graphene so that it can be used to attract or repel water.

Goodfellow has an exclusive contract for the re-selling of Biohastalex® materials and works with NanoRegMed developing a range of functionalized graphene oxide composites that can be used for medical devices, tissue engineering, 3D scaffolds, nerve generation and patches.

The National Physics Laboratory in the UK has recognized the high-purity of the products offered by Goodfellow in comparison to other products on the market.

Helping You Choose from Over 1000 Polymer Options

Extensive Range of Polymers for Medical Devices | GoodfellowExtensive Range of Polymers for Medical Devices | Goodfellow

Goodfellow offers over 1000 different polymer options in a variety of different formats, from rods to films to sheets, depending on the application or what is suitable for the intended medical device. Where the right choice of polymer is not obvious, we can support you with technical advice on finding the right material for the target medical device or application.

For medical sensors, Goodfellow has an extensive range of ultrafine wires available in a variety of materials, including gold, titanium and niobium. It is possible to achieve diameters of >1μm, and Goodfellow can also create custom alloys where required. Chemical resistance is often a particular consideration for medical applications, as well as avoiding oxidation and similar processes that may lead to issues with the sensor no longer providing accurate readings.

Contact Goodfellow today to find out how its support could help reduce your device-to-market time for medical device development or support in upscaling your manufacture with a reliable and trustworthy source of materials on demand.
