Biological Characterization of Polysaccharide-based Biodegradable Material

Biological Characterization of Polysaccharide-based Biodegradable Material

Complete product characterization is critical for the successful development of biologics. CD BioGlyco is committed to providing clients with biological characterization services of Carbohydrate-based Biodegradable Materials, including antibacterial activity testing and biocompatibility testing. Our complete biological characterization solutions help you to advance polysaccharide-based biomaterials for biomedical applications from early development to commercialization.

Biological Characterization

Polysaccharides exhibit complex structures and a wide range of functional activities, and the structural groups of polysaccharides can be easily modified and compounded, offering the potential for exploitation. These biomacromolecules can be used as raw materials to develop different biomaterials for a variety of applications, such as blood flow adjuvants, surgical threads, wound dressings, and tissue engineering. For example, cellulose, chitosan, alginate, hyaluronic acid, and starch have been extensively investigated for the development of polysaccharide-based hemostatic materials.

Some polysaccharide-based materials have interesting and useful properties and show multiple biological activities, such as antibacterial, immunomodulatory, antimutagenic, radioprotective, antioxidant, anti-ulcer, or anti-inflammatory activities. Among others, antibacterial activity and biocompatibility are critical factors for the use of these materials in biomedical applications. Currently, various methods have been developed to study and determine the microbial properties, bacterial inhibition, and biocompatibility of polysaccharide-derived biomaterials. Rapidly developing materials characterization techniques, nanobiotechnology, and other technologies will continue to drive novel polysaccharide-based materials to market to better serve the biomedical field.
