Advanced Database For Biomaterials With Data Analysis And Visualisation Tools Extended By A Marketplace With Digital Advisors

THE PROJECT

Biomaterials in the healthcare sector cover almost all medical fields, from the most standard materials to highly innovative smart and multifunctional biomaterials. One of the main challenges is to provide accessible and well-structured data on them for all interested professionals and user groups.

BIOMATDB aims to create an advanced database for biomaterials by providing detailed information on its properties. Flexible data analysis and visualization tools support the search and selection process based on the analysis of biological test results of biomaterials from the scientific literature to incorporate data on as many material properties as possible.

BIOMATDB also provides web-optimized information and digital consultants to support companies, especially SMEs, in offering their products and presenting themselves appropriately on a global scale. Initiated by biomaterial use cases, the web application will match suppliers and applicants through smart matching tools and step-by-step decision support.

BIOMATDB focuses on creating a biocompatibility label to define the suitability of a biomaterial for use in a medical device or advanced therapy and to assist companies, especially SMEs, in choosing and facilitating market access for their products by providing them with better guidance.

All technical systems created and data processing methods are tested within existing open innovation testbeds and validation groups. Intuitive training manuals and compact online video tutorials will support the use of the database, market and label. Appropriate business models will also be devised to ensure the long-term sustainability of the solutions created.
