We are leading experts in the testing and development of biomaterials, engineered tissues, and medical devices. Our clients are product development teams at medical device companies and pharmaceutical firms. We also work closely with corporate and university researchers. We provide: 1. Contract testing services 2. Advanced training in tissue testing and specialized equipment usage 3. Contract research and partnership opportunities in product development Zymetrix was launched in 2009 and is based at the University of Calgary. We are partnered with Western Economic Diversification, BOSE Electroforce Systems Group, Calgary Scientific, the National Research Council, Siemens, IMRIS, the Alberta Ingenuity Centre for Integrated Biomedical Technology, and Biovantage.com. Our mandate is to assist in the development of enhanced diagnostics and treatment technologies for health challenges, including: neurological illnesses, bone and joint diseases, fractures, cardiovascular diseases, tumour detection and stent patency. The Centre will be a key facilitator in the development of the Canadian biomedical sector by developing innovative, minimally invasive medical imaging and sensing technologies and transferring those technologies to local companies.
