DSM are

Degradable Starch Microspheres

DSM technology creates solutions for patients and providers by leveraging cutting-edge technology and medical research. By combining different formulations with different active ingredients, DSM can be used to address currently unmet medical needs, providing patients and health care professional with effective and innovative treatment options.

Our DSM products are registered and approved as medical devices in a number of therapeutic areas

  • Drug accumulation in targeted tumor tissue
  • Embolization

  • Biochemical leakage indicator

DSM technology provides value for practitioners and patients

  • DSM are fully biodegradable, biocompatible starch microspheres developed to meet medical needs in several fields.
  • By adjusting production conditions, DSM properties can be modified.
  • This allows for the creation of different DSM formulations that are all combinable with a variety of different active ingredients and substances to generate novel DSM based products.
  • Use of DSM technology is supported by robust evidence.
  • While several DSM based products are registered and approved, research and development into new and innovative solutions to address currently unmet medical needs is ongoing.
