SOLUTION PROVIDER HELP DESK:
NineSigma, representing a Global Leader in medical devices and specializing in hydrogel materials, invites proposals for technologies that can deposit hydrophilic polymer to hydrogel surface to achieve a slow-release delivery of the polymer under controlled conditions.
It is desired to release a hydrophilic polymer (water soluble) from the surface of the medical device (hydrogel).
The RFP sponsor is seeking innovations that can continuously release a hydrophilic polymer from the surface of the hydrogel in vivo for at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours.
The desired technology must:
