Heparosan by HTL

Heparosan by HTL
Product Description

HTL is developing Heparosan, a promising raw material for the design of innovative medical devices. Under license, HTL will be the sole producer of medical grade, high molecular weight Heparosan by fermentation (20 kDa to 2MDa). Safe for use in humans, Heparosan is an endogenous GlycosAminoGlycan with a structure very close to that of hyaluronan, but it cannot be hydrolyzed by hyaluronidase enzymes. HTL is your partner for the development of tailor-made functionalized derivatives such as Heparosan sulfate.

The physico-chemical and biological characteristics of Heparosan will enable to produce a variety of superior biomaterials, gels and scaffolds, with a potentially increased lifetime and water retention capability compared to existing biomaterials.

Potential applications: ophthalmology, orthopedics, aesthetics, dermatology, coating of medical devices, tissue engineering, drug delivery systems development.
