The Biomaterials Lab is dedicated to research and development of materials for biomedical and tissue engineering applications.
This lab is divided into three main areas. It has a common area equipped with a freeze dryer equipment, a furnace, an oven and general use equipment for sample preparation. It is equipped with a magnetic hyperthermia equipment intended to study the generated heat from magnetic nanoparticles. The third area of this lab is dedicated to fiber production composed with two electrospinning and one force-spinning set-up. This lab is also equipped with an Encapsulation unit to produce small polymer beads in a controllable manner.
