Tailored biomedical polymers

GL CHEMTEC specializes in the creation of novel, biomedical polymers and hydrogels for a wide range of applications in the drug delivery and medical device sectors.

Over the last decade, we have developed a number of major innovations, including new hydrogels and silicone hydrogels, functionalized biopolymers, emulsions and nano-emulsions, synthetic organoids, wound-healing polymers, and novel contact lens technologies, among many others.

Discover bespoke solutions with GL CHEMTEC

We design and synthesize tailored polymers to meet your unique needs, enriching both drug delivery and medical device applications. Our customized polymers service enhances drug stability, solubility, and bioavailability and provides controlled release for extended effectiveness. In medical devices, these polymers contribute to improved biocompatibility, durability, and performance.

 

Drug delivery
Advanced materials, including films, emulsions and nano-emulsions, hydrogels and silicone hydrogels, designed and manufactured in-house specifically for your custom application.

 

 

Ophthalmology
Tailored polymers and emulsions containing novel building blocks, cross-linkers and dyes, to name a few examples, for the treatment of dry eye disease, presbyopia, myopia, and glaucoma. 

 

 

Medical device
A track record of success in women’s health, in the manufacturing of cardiac wires, in the development of a disruptive neurostimulation therapeutic approach to dry eye disease, in novel contact lenses with encapsulated technologies and in the development of emulsions for the treatment of cardiac disease.

Sustainable, green materials
Delivering innovative tailored polymers and solutions that meet your unique requirements and contribute to a greener future and to the circular economy.
