Implants: It depends on the right material!

Dear Sir or Madam,

There are several things to consider when developing materials for implants: Which materials are biocompatible? How can they be combined to improve the result? Can they be produced cost-effectively? Dr. Jörg Opitz at the Fraunhofer IKTS is working on precisely these issues. That's why we asked him what his work and that of his colleagues exactly looks like. Click here for the interview!

Enjoy the sun!

PS: One more important message on our own behalf. COMPAMED 2020, like MEDICA 2020, will be held purely virtually. For more information, please read our press release here!
