What we do

BIOVOX is creating biologically functional materials. Bio-based, biodegradable and antimicrobial. For 3D printing and for injection moulding. We want to make the surfaces we touch every day clean and sustainable and use the unique properties of our materials in medical applications.

Renewable materials are the basis for the next generation of products and to make the world a more sustainable place.

In the long term we want to make using biodegradable implants easy for you, the medical professional. We want your fracture to heal faster and reduce risk and inconvenience for you, the patient. And we want to cut costs for you, the health insurance company.

To make this extensive med tech development feasible, we will enter the market with everyday consumer products that can benefit from antimicrobial materials on a renewable basis. Our materials have impact by using food waste and renewable resources.

The BIOVOX value chain

Our core technology is the 3D-printing process for biodegradable materials. To achieve best results, we set up a digital process chain and a qualified supply chain.

We have developed a new materials that enables printing and injection moulding biopolymers, some of which have outstanding properties:

  • They are biodegradable: you can decompose them within a reasonable time. Without polluting the body or the evironment with free microplastics or toxic substances. This often renders surgery to remove implants obsolete. Medical risk and costs for most osteosynthesis therapy are almost cut by 50%.
  • Antibacterial and fungicidal characteristics reduce the risk of complications.
  • 3D printing from CT or MRT scans: Utilization of a fully digital process chain provides the chance for creating individually taylored implants (decomposition speed, geometry and stiffness)
  • We use sustainable biopolymers from renewable raw materials.

Our technology is currently in the prototyping phase.

Who BIOVOX convinced yet

The project BIOVOX is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy and the European Social Fund as part of the EXIST programme. We are happy to have gotten this grant, the funding period is 08/2020 – 07/2021.

Hessen Ideen Stipendium Logo

BIOVOX was able to win a Hessen Ideen Stipendium. A Jury of experts evaluated our Idea and we were granted financing for 6 months as well as participation on their accelerator program.

  • A number of companies gave us letters of intent for development partnerships. Our partners are working in the computer input device sector, machinery and model making sectors.

     

  • We were participants and finalists (TOP 5) of the TU Darmstadt Ideenwettbewerb, an ideas competition of Technische Universität Darmstadt at the Startup & Innovation Day 2019.
