Poly(Lactide-co-caprolactone)s are biodegradable, biocompatible and bioabsorbable copolymers composed of l-lactide and ε-caprolactone. Due to these excellent properties, this semi-crystalline material has been widely used in the manufacture of research medical devices and research tissue engineering solutions such as orthopaedic or soft tissue fixation devices. Studies have shown that implants or drug carriers constructed of this material can be degraded in the body and can be safely resorbed by the body. The degradation rate and mechanical stability of polymers can be controlled by modification of molecular weight and polymer composition. These are very beneficial to its application in solid-phase drug delivery or implant system construction.
CD Bioparticles offers poly(Lactide-co-caprolactone)s in various LA:CL ratios and molecular weight for the research of solid phase drug delivery or implantable systems. In addition, we also offer poly(Lactide-co-caprolactone)s modified with acid, ester, and hydroxyl groups. Contact us to learn how poly(Lactide-co-caprolactone)s can help your work.
