PBC’s Medical Implants Deal with the SFI-backed Research Centre, I-Form


Innovative new medical implants could be on the way following a deal between PBC BioMed and I-Form, the Science Foundation Ireland-backed research centre.

The €300,000 four-year agreement is for a project to investigate the feasibility of manufacturing magnesium-based medical implants using state-of-the art metal 3D printing and coating processes.

The aim is to demonstrate improved implant performance while developing a novel, cost- effective, advanced manufacturing process.
