Hydromer, Inc. was founded in 1980 to capitalize on the newly developed and patented technologies in hydrophilic complexing polymers. These polymers exhibit unique properties by imparting biological compatibilities to medical devices, particularly in the cardiovascular area for devices like stents, including the emerging stent drug delivery, distal protection devices and therapeutic catheters.

Hydromer constantly strives to build upon its current technologies - successfully expanding its technology/product base to include anti-fog and condensation control coatings for optical applications, water-resistant film formers and allergen barriers for cosmetics, and unique hydrogels for wound care and pharmaceutical delivery applications.

The initial great success on licensing these patents gave rise to an entire family of patents, covering much larger fields of application. In addition to medical devices, products are licensed and/or sold for use in color cosmetics ; personal care products such as razor blades to make them glide easier, hair dyes and hair conditioners; as coatings for boats to reduce the friction between the boat and water; as condensation control for greenhouses; as anti-fog for goggles, lenses and diving masks and as barrier lotions that protects the wearer from the effects of poison ivy and poison oak, to name a few. Hydromer is also working to transfer it's technology developed for human applications into animal health via its
T-HEXX business. The company laboratories continue to develop and patent new inventions at an ever increasing rate.

Hydromer is ready to capitalize further on its R&D efforts by developing relationships with often major companies to sell, manufacture and license its products and technology worldwide. In February of 2000, Hydromer acquired Biosearch Medical Products, Inc. Through this wholly owned subsidiary, Hydromer has expanded it's capabilities in contract manufacturing under ISO 9000/FDA Certification, and also offers a range of medical devices on an OEM basis to marketers of medical products.

Hydromer's hydrophilic, biocompatible, functionalized, drug delivery and hydrogel polymer technologies have unlimited applications in medical device, diagnostics, pharmaceutical, biotech, animal health, industrial plastics and hygiene, optics, personal care and cosmetic applications, boating and sustained disinfection and protection of surfaces and skin. Hydromer now also offers a range of medical devices on an OEM basis through it's Biosearch Medical Subsidiary. Visit www.biosearch.com for more information.
