Medical Technology

Glassy carbon SIGRADUR® is resistant against biological systems and shows an excellent compatibility with blood and tissue. Good mechanical properties at low density, high purity and biocompatibility make glassy carbon SIGRADUR® to an interesting material for medical technology and biotechnology. Glassy carbon has a high X-ray transmission due to its low atomic number which is important for applications in the medical radiotechnology.
