CMD-COAT SA is a spin-off company of Liège University, Liège, Belgium, located in Sart-Tilman near by the CHU, and dedicated to developing a bioactive coating to prevent infection and thrombosis of catheters. The company addresses important medical, economic and societal needs related to the two most frequent complications associated with devices routinely used in medical practice, and for which there are no specific medical treatment.
Our patented technology confers the surface desired features such as antifouling, antiadhesive, antimicrobial and antithrombotic properties that will guarantee longer clinical performance than currently available catheters.
This innovative solution will be subsequently adapted to other types of implantable medical devices such as pacemakers or heart valve prostheses, either mechanical or biological, in order to improve their durability.
The CMD-COAT team has been built on complementary and multidisciplinary
knowledge and skills. It uniquely combines expertise in clinical practice in
cardiology, and research in cardiovascular sciences and polymer chemistry.
