We are researching the application of silk sponge as a medical material.

We seek wound treatment using a different approach to the conventional foam material.

Silk has potential for improved functionality by incorporating technologies such as genetic and chemical modification. This opens up further opportunities.

Characteristics of silk fibroin sponge

  • Porous medium made purely from silk fibroin (with moisturizing ingredient)
  • Favorable texture (smooth touch similar to silk fabric)
  • High porosity of over 90 % (v/v) that enable high water retention
  • High biological safety
  • Heat resistance: Stable
  • Solvent resistance: Stable
