Tissuebond adopted as brand name for Tissuemed’s adhesive biomaterial technology

Tissuemed has started usingas the brand descriptor for its platform adhesive terpolymer technology. The company believes Tissuebond reflects the key characteristic of its biomaterial, which is to bond covalently to amine groups on the surface of tissues being treated by surgeons. Tissuemed is determinedly seeking to apply its technology to devices which would be usefully rendered self adhesive. This may extend to meshes, films, electrodes and surgically implanted devices where temporary or sustained adhesion to a tissue or bone surface is desirable.
