InnoPhysics joins REGMED XB

 RB2
InnoPhysics has joined the REGMED XB initiative. REGMED XB aims at three 'moonshot' developments in regenerative medicine: taking steps towards bioengineerd joints, a first subunit of a bioengineered kidney, proof-of-concept therapy for type I diabetes. Innophysics will assisted the researchers to provide solutions where cells meet surfaces.

THE POTENTIAL OF PLASMA PRINTING Electrical discharges – or plasmas – have fascinated mankind for centuries, because of their aesthetical beauty and uncontrollable behaviour. It is only for a few
Technology Basics

Plasma activated molecules can be used to print nano surface modification. The plasma enables the molecules to react with the surface without the need for elevated surface temperatures, hence even at room temperature the surfaces can be modified. In addition only a few nanometers of the surface is modified by the process.
