Implant Technologies

Innovative Manufacturing Processes and In Vitro Testing Methods of Bioceramics in Biomedical Application Vortragssprache Deutsch Simultanübersetzung Englisch

It's about ceramics in the biomedical application. Innovative manufacturing processes and new ceramic materials (silicon nitride) are presented. The biological testing of implant materials will be highlighted and the required immunological characterization of the material surfaces as a key to future applications will be clarified.

In the field of "Biotechnology and Medical Technology" Fraunhofer IKTS offers ceramic materials, components and systems for dental technology, endoprosthetics and biomedical diagnostics and therapeutics.
Based on commercially available materials, new ceramic materials and components with improved and modified properties are being developed. The scientists use foaming, impression and slip casting technologies, plasma coating and sol-gel processes as well as innovative processes such as additive manufacturing.
The freeze-foam process produces a foam ceramic with a high proportion of open porosity. This fulfills structural requirements for bone replacement.
Silicon nitride is being presented as a new material for medical use in terms of new surface designs. This material has on the one hand a high wear resistance and toughness / strength and on the other hand very good biocompatible, osseointegrative and antimicrobial properties.
A ceramic individual dental implant with a structured surface made of Y-stabilized zirconium oxide produced by slip casting (direct shaping) is presented.
The group "Biological Material Analysis" supports implant development with research on immunologically active, bioceramic materials and develops standardized immunobiological test methods for new implant materials, especially for the dental as well as endoprosthetic area. The current research focus is on the establishment of suitable cell (co-) culture models for osteoimmunological investigations on biomaterials with the aim of developing standardized test assays.
Ultimately, the biological and immunological characterization of materials, surfaces, shapes, and structures is the key to future application, allowing resource-efficient acceleration of the development process.
