We’ve been a manufacturer of specialty chemicals for 60 years,
beginning with stains and resins for biological electron microscopy, and continuing through our current
industry leadership in the synthesis of fine chemicals for medical device, biopharma, electronics and
technology sectors. We invite you to view a sampling of the broad range of applications that we support.
Lipids for Drug Delivery
Polysciences scientists have mastered the synthesis of lipids (Phospholipids, Pegylated Lipids, Cationic Lipids etc.) used in drug delivery &
Monomers used to fabricate intraocular lenses for the treatment of cataracts or myopia.
Cationic and lipid-based cellular transfection reagents for the development of vaccines and biotherapeutics including therapeutic proteins and cell and gene therapies.
Drug delivery devices
Monomers and polymers utilized to fabricate drug-eluting surgical mesh, intravaginal contraception rings, etc.
Medical device coatings
Monomers and polymers used for medical device coatings, including lubricious or anti-inflammatory coatings to improve device biocompatibility, anticoagulant/ anti-fouling coatings for tube and stent patency, or compound-eluting or resorbable coatings for drug delivery.
Scaffolds for tissue engineering
Monomers and polymers for the development of scaffolds for tissue regeneration or repair, such as dental, cardiac.
Microspheres for solid phase diagnostics
Particles coated with antigen, antibody, DNA, etc. for use in a range of at-home and POC diagnostics devices for infectious disease, pregnancy, disease biomarkers, etc.
Dyes/stains for Cytology and Histology
Dyes and stains for microscopic examination of tissue biopsies and features of cells or other specimen for research, clinical and veterinary medical purposes.
Biodegradable embolic agents for temporary vascular occlusion in cancer treatment.
Semiconductor waver polishing components
Highly (electronically) pure dispersants used in chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) slurries for wafer polishing.
High-performance adhesives, coatings and encapsulants used in electronic components for highly-technical fields and applications, including medical device, aerospace, alternative energy and optoelectronics and sensors.
Dielectric coatings for optical sensors in analytical instruments and high throughput sensing systems.
Calibrators for analytical instruments
Microspheres labeled with dyes, fluorophores or metals for use in calibrating analtyical laboratory instrumentation including fluorescent microscopes, flow cytometers and POC diagnostic platforms.
Disinfectants & Critical Cleaning Agents
Chemicals used as or in the formulation of disinfectants and critical cleaning agents for the general laboratory, cleanrooms and dental or
Polysciences carries a range of histology and general laboratory consumables to keep your lab running smoothly.
