BMS expands capabilities for medical coatings development

Driven by new projects stemming from the recent US and European launches of Baymedix C, the team doubled in size in the past two months. The equipment has been upgraded as well. A new dip-coating instrument allows the treatment of larger customer samples, up to 140 cm in length.


This is especially useful for applying Baymedix CL lubricious coatings onto full-length cardiovascular catheters. Another change is the addition of support for Baymedix CH hydrophilic polyurethane coatings at the Centre. One important addition to the team was hiring a full-time process engineer. This role is intended to assist in the scale-up of manufacturing processes using Baymedix coating products.
