Polyvation Your medicine to innovate

Custom manufacturing

PolyVation performs custom synthesis and manufacturing of your (to be) specified polymers or reactive functional molecules.

We take care of process development, up-scaling and commercial (ISO/GMP) manufacturing on grams to multi-kilogram batch scale. 


Whatever your synthetic request, PolyVation is your party to talk to. We like to be challenged in designing novel (macro)molecular architectures using various chemical strategies, making novel monomers, building homopolymers, copolymers, block copolymers or crosslinked polymers and by end-group or side-group functionalization.

A few areas of expertise:

Bioabsorbable polymers:

  • Polyesters (PLA, PLGA, PCLA, ...)
  • Polyetheresters (PEG/PEO-based polymers)
  • Polyorthoesters
  • Polyurethanes

Biostable polymers:

  • Vinyl pyrrolidone (co)polymers
  • Acrylate (co)polymers
  • Vinyl alcohol graft copolymers


PolyVation is fully equipped to manufacture polymers and functional monomers from the gram-scale to the multi-kilogram scale, while strictly validating and monitoring the specifications. Stability and a constant high quality of production are guaranteed by our high-level quality system (ISO/GMP) and expertise in (polymer) chemistry.

In our current portfolio we manufacture polymers for 

  • Injectable drug delivery systems
  • Ophthalmic devices
  • Cardio-vascular devices
  • Tissue engineering
  • Embolization
  • Bone void fillers
  • Diagnostic devices
