How is the need for Biocompatibility in the Medical Devices Driving Demand?
Biocompatibility is one the most critical criteria that medical devices should fulfill before being certified safe for sales and for use in the healthcare industry. Biocompatibility is defined as the compatibility of a medical device, tool or equipment with the human biological system and those that do not cause any harm to the internal organs of a human body.
Biocompatibility requirements are even more stringent for medical devices that are meant for surgical applications and those used as implants. Some of the common examples are orthopedic implants, stents, and pacemakers among others. Medical grade coatings are used for improving the biocompatibility of the medical devices, tools and equipment, making them safe for human use.
For example, in angioplasty procedures and the implantation of stent trigger body responses leading to restenosis in the arteries. To overcome these problems, drug eluting coatings have been used to coat metal stents to allow the controlled release of drugs that inhibit the restenosis process. Similarly, medical grade coatings are used to coat devices whose substrate materials may harmfully react with body tissues or fluids. Thus, the role of medical grade coatings in improving the biocompatibility of medical devices is a key factor in market growth.
