MeDFila® – Making Medical Application Possible
Additive Manufacturing (AM) has received enormous attention for decades, the application in clinical practice, however, remains stagnant. This is mainly contributed by the lack of integration between material science, machinery and medical regulation. In light of that, MeDFila® was launched to eliminating the obstacles.
MeDFila® is a registered trademark of a series of biodegradable filaments, the plastic raw materials for additive manufacturing, designing for medical application via FDM system. Two types of filament are constructed for such purpose, pure polymer, and polymer-ceramics composite.
Three grades, i.e. Research grade, Medical grade for research and GMP grade, of MeDFila® are offered to specifically fulfill various demands and requirements, such as early stage prototyping, animal study, and manufacture of medical devices or implants.
With the release of MeDFila®, medical applications become possible for additive manufacturing. Fully traceable documentation is exclusively provided for medical devices manufacturers in facilitating clinical approval as well as systemic quality control. The sky is no longer a limit for your outstanding and innovative research and development.
MeDFila® is an ideal material for medical implant manufacturing, base on features below:
- Medical-grade filament ready for medical implant printing
- Adjustable bio-degradation time
- Produced in GMP-like environment
- Gamma sterilizable
- Standard diameters for FDM system (1.75mm & 3.00mm)
MeDFila® is an ideal material for medical implant manufacturing in applications below:
- Dental filler
- Bone graft substitute
- Plastic surgery
- Drug delivery
All medical-grade filaments are produced under Good Manufacturing Practices guidance. Medical grade filaments are fabricated in a clean room with well-controlled humidity, temperature, and particles. Certificate of Analysis (COA) will be provided within each lot of medical-grade filament.

|Medical (R&D)||for medical related research purposes||1. CoA
2. Ready for animal study
3. Not for human use
|Medical (GMP)||for device design||1. CoA
3. ISO 7 clean room
4. Controlled temperature
5. Controlled humidity
6. Particle control
7. Please call for quote and availability. (Manufacturing on Demand)
Packaging and Logistic
Packaging, storage, and environmental consistency during logistics are vitally important for bio-degradable filament to avoid unpleasant degradation especially for medical-grade materials. At ABT, we consider every detail for our products to ensure the consistency of quality till the product be delivered to our customers. The packaging process was performed in a clean room to maintain the quality of MeDFila®, filaments are heat-sealed in Tyvek bag and further heat-sealed in aluminum foil bags as an outer bags.
All GMP grade MeDFila® will be delivered by a professional logistics company* within the precise temperature control and certified packaging to ensure superior quality.(*Depends on client’s demand)
