Manufacturing

From monomer to medical device

TIGR®Matrix is produced from monomer to finished medical device at Novus Scientific’s manufacturing plant in Uppsala, Sweden.

The Novus team of polymer chemists and engineers has developed the polymerization process based on their many years of experience in working with resorbable materials. The subsequent two production steps – turning the polymers into fibers and warp-knitting them into a mesh – are also carried out in our own facilities, several of them in a clean-room environment. The overall process comprises over 14 different steps and takes several months to complete. Our quality control and development facilities ensure that we continuously improve our knowledge of resorbable polymers and maintain the high quality standards required for finished medical device products.

The development and manufacturing is certified according to ISO13485 and fulfills QSR requirements for medical devices.
