JenKem Technology offers high quality biodegradable PEG co-polymers. The interest in biodegradable polymers for the medical and pharmaceutical field stems from the need for extended release drug delivery systems; and for degradable medical devices that do not require human intervention for removal from the body. JenKem® PEGs are ideal candidates as a polymeric backbone, as they have already been successfully applied for wound sealing and healingcontrolled drug delivery, and tissue engineering.
