POLTISS (Polymer Tissue) is a medical device company, which was founded in 2015 to introduce PhotoBioCure™ technology of modern, light activated, adhesive polymer biomaterials to the market.
Our aim is to develop the technology and a wide range of applications, such as soft tissue regeneration.
Our technology is based on polymeric materials, which under the influence of UV radiation turns from a sticky paste into a flexible solids. The composition is fully biodegradable in a living environment and eventually replaced by natural tissue.
PhotoBioCure™ properties are especially relevant to minimally invasive surgery that is increasingly performed to reduce postoperative complications, recovery times, and patient discomfort.
We are supported by YouNick Mint fund which is specialized in healthcare technologies commercialization.
POLTISS closely cooperates with the Division of Biomaterials and Microbiological Technologies of West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin, Poland.
The cofounder & CEO, recognized expert in the field of polymeric biomaterials engineering. She is coauthor of patented technologies and materials for extracorporeal heart assist devices and minimally invasive surgical techniques. She has been collaborating with domestic and foreign universities, including the University of Warsaw, the University of Akron, and the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials (USA). She completed a number of projects in cooperation with companies like DePuy Johnson & Johnson, Uniqema/Croda, Honda Europe, Philips. The scientific achievements of prof. El Fray include more than 250 publications, including 90 publications in journals from the Journal Citations Reports, 7 granted patents and 5 patent applications (including the EU and the USPTO).
The cofounder, has 10 years experience in technology transfer and business support. Helped to build number of technology startups (biotech, electronics & IT). He has managed a leading business angels network in Poland.
