Company Presentation


PolyVation is an experienced developer and maker of biomedical polymers. Our expertise  stretches from chemistry and manufacturing to the end of creating the proper polymer structure-property relationships for the specific product application. We work with highly educated and experienced people in an advanced laboratory and production environment. PolyVation is established in 1996 as a spin-off of the local university and university hospital. Since then the company grew gradually towards a group of over 45 professionals and 3 spin-off polymer technology venture companies.

PolyVation is specialized in biomedical polymers for advanced applications in healthcare, mainly implants, drug delivery and tissue engineering. The company is fully equipped for customer-specific development, synthesis, formulation, manufacturing and analysis of advanced biomedical polymers, polymer systems, monomers and functional components. PolyVation is ISO 13485 certified. Our manufacturing operations are being performed under a stringent quality regime corresponding to the industry guidelines of the EU and US FDA for the manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients, excipients and medical devices (ICH Q7,  21 CFR 820 / ISO 13485).

For HydroZones we are the partner to take the best working polymer system, that is going to be developed by the R&D partners, to the level of cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices). This includes optimizing the chemistries, scaling-up the processes involved, creating documentation cocoons and supply suitable amounts of high quality polymer(s) for HydroZone?s critical studies.
