Mosaic products are based on its patented thiol-ene click chemistry and proprietary modular polymer platform. These technologies provide Mosaic with the unprecedented flexibility to create a range of novel biomaterials that are ideally suited to applications ranging from nano-particles to drug delivery matrices to scaffolds for tissue repair and regeneration.
Patented Thiol-Ene Click Chemistry
- Safe: Mosaic’s thiol-ene chemistry does not react with or modify proteins, nucleic acids, cells, and tissues.
- Fast: Reactions complete within seconds.
- Controlled: Photo-initiation allows for spatial and temporal control of reactions.
- Precise: Click chemistry reactions results in step growth matrices that provide precise control over the network structure and material properties.
- Robust: pH-independent and not inhibited by oxygen.
Modular Platform for Creating Novel Biomaterials
- Versatile: Biomaterials can be created from a range of components, including synthetic components such as PEGs, PLGA, and natural components such as proteins, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and nucleic acids.
- Bioresponsive: Biomaterials can be built to have specific degradation mechanisms allowing the creation of bioresponsive materials.
- Bioactive: Proteins, nucleic acids, and cells can be encapsulated or incorporated into the material, allowing the creation of bioactive materials.
- Biocompatible: Well defined breakdown products that can be easily cleared from the body
- Flexible: Biomaterials can be rapidly formed in place (for example to fill a cartilage or bone defect) or can be reproducibly formed in a manufacturing process.
