Collagen is a diverse biocompatible raw material for different scopes of application. In particular, due to its cell compatibility and low immunogenicity collagen is suitable for medical and pharmaceutical applications e. g. in wound healing, soft tissue regeneration or drug delivery. A large number of research projects at FILK deal with application-oriented product development. This way collagen products were already developed for applications in the field of agriculture (degradable plastic mulches), in the food area (protein-based pet food), in cosmetics (collagen hydrolysates), in medical training (organ models), and in the field of medicine (dental chips, implant material, tissue engineering). For the manufacture of collagen products pursuant to the requirements of medical engineering FILK has a cleanroom pilot plant.
