Plastic materials are essential in all areas of healthcare, from the most basic products, such as plasters, to the most advanced medical devices. Their use in medicine has helped improve patients’ quality of life, reduce costs and increase hygiene. Innovation in biopolymers, i.e. materials for pharmaceutical and medical use in conjunction with biological systems, presents infinite possibilities in the field of health.
A project managed by AIMPLAS has developed a new process for producing rapid COVID-19 tests. According to clinical trials in patients, the test can detect antibodies, as well as the UK variant, with a sensitivity of over 98%.
Given the health emergency generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, AIMPLAS is working to make its knowledge of materials, its capacity for design, prototyping and manufacture, […]
The European FLEXPOL project has developed an innovative antibacterial plastic film using nanoencapsulated essential oils that is more eco-friendly than current hygienization methods.
