Graphite Parts For Biomedical
Carbon material has excellent compatibility with the human body and is a very good biomedical material. As a new type of carbon material, expanded graphite material has excellent adsorption properties for organic and biological macromolecules, and has good biocompatibility. It is non-toxic, tasteless, and has no side effects, and has broad application prospects in biomedical materials.
Graphite nanosheets integrated into medical surfaces can prevent infection, a cheap and feasible potential solution that kills 99.99% of bacteria trying to attach, solves problems that affect millions, and improves resistance to antibiotics. This is based on a study in the Small Journal of Chalmers University of Technology (translated) in Sweden.
Bandages made of expanded graphite particles with common medical gauze as the base can be directly applied to the wound surface. Expanded graphite absorbs exudates from burn wounds better than gauze and non-stick gauze. It is non-toxic and harmless. It is not easy to adhere to burn wounds and is easy to replace. It can replace conventional gauze dressings for burns and other wounds with good effect. Tsinghua University has developed a medical dressing made of expanded graphite. Animal experiments have proved that it is non-toxic, non-side-effect, non-irritating, non-staining, and promoting healing. It can replace medical gauze. Proved by clinical trials. Compared with traditional gauze, medical dressings made of expanded graphite have good drainage effects, and have obvious anti-infection, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory effects, which can replace 50% to 80% of traditional gauze.
SGI provides high-performance biomedical graphite materials, typical applications: artificial heart valves, CT filters, blood analysis devices and corresponding processing equipment, etc.
