BIOMAT-biopolymeric materials

 Koro de la Caba and Pedro Guerrero, Biomat researchers, ranked among Top 2% of world’s most-cited scientists. Stanford University (California, USA) has published the list 'Ranking of the World Scientists: World's Top 2 % Scientists', which identifies the most influential researchers in the world.

Biomat presents the portfolio of bioinks processable by 3D printing. Biotinks in gel format, are based on proteins of plant and animal origin and are adaptable for any type of printer (demo video). 

ICED hosted an online meeting with Prof. Koro de la Caba (Head of BIOMAT research group) and Dr. Pedro Guerrero, from the University of the Basque Country in Spain to discuss the potential for collaboration.

Progress in the development of biodegradable packaging. The Biomat group of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country and the company Yon Mikel Janariak are adapting the methodology for producing ready meals to the use of biodegradable packaging as a genuine alternative to plastic

Researchers in the UPV/EHU’s NanoBioCel and Biomat groups have developed a biomedical device consisting of by-products from the food industry and which displays excellent properties for use in regenerative medicine.

The Biomat group of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country and the company Domotek have produced personalised biomaterials using native collagen

Thanks to the progress made in producing biomaterials that can be processed by 3D printing developed by Biomat, and in acquiring and processing data for 3D printers carried out by Domotek, the biocompatibility of the products manufactured means that they can be used as tooling components or prostheses.

Squid pens used to make scaffolds for biomedical applications

Chitin is one of the most abundant renewable materials in nature and has great potential for manufacturing biodegradable products. The UPV/EHU’s BIOMAT group is working to obtain chitin using alternative sources such as squid pens, and to then validate it as a reinforcing agent in the manufacture of protein-based materials for biomedical applications.
