  • Patent number: 10323132
    Abstract: Provided are a copolymer having enough biocompatibility to be used in a medical material application, and a method of forming a crosslinked body, which involves modifying a substrate surface with the copolymer so that the surface may be biocompatible. More specifically, a protein adsorption-suppressing effect and a cell adhesion-suppressing effect, which are features of a phosphorylcholine group, are imparted to the substrate surface. It has been found that the object is achieved by a copolymer containing a phosphorylcholine constitutional unit, a hydrophobic constitutional unit, and a photoreactive constitutional unit at a specific ratio.

    Abstract: In analyzing, fractionating, and culturing cells alive, operations can be more simply made in real time and culture can be performed while removing unnecessary cells from cultured cells for purification. Desired cells are also analyzed and fractionated from the cultured cells to increase the purity, recovery rate, and viability of the cells. A cell-adhesive photocontrollable base material is used in which light irradiation causes the bond dissociation of a photolabile group comprising an O-nitrobenzyl skeleton to irreversibly change the surface of the irradiated portion thereof from that of the cell-adhesive material to that of a non-cell-adhesive material. Cell images are detected and analyzed to obtain the positional information of desired cells. Based on this information, areas among cells and a cell-adhesive photocontrollable material are cut by second light irradiation.

  • Publication number: 20130059926
    Abstract: A method for producing polymerisable solution which comprises dissolving an ethylenically unsaturated zwitterionic monomer in a co-monomer system comprising a functionalised ethylenically unsaturated monomer in which the zwitterionic monomer is soluble, a siloxane group-containing monomer or macromer, and a crosslinking agent is disclosed. The polymerisable solution is biocompatible and can be used to produce polymers and articles such as contact lenses.

  • Patent number: 8362180
    Abstract: Water-soluble, hydrophobically associating copolymers which comprise new types of hydrophobically associating monomers. The monomers comprise an ethylenically unsaturated group and a polyether group with block structure comprising a hydrophilic polyalkylene oxide block which consists essentially of ethylene oxide groups, and a terminal, hydrophobic polyalkylene oxide block which consists of alkylene oxides with at least 4, preferably at least 5 carbon atoms.

  • Patent number: 8343392
    Abstract: A composite material is constituted by fine nano-oxide particles, a dispersant, and a transparent resin material. The dispersant includes a polymer of vinyl monomer having a binding acidic group. When ? is a dimensionless number defined by an average particle size (nm) of the fine nano-oxide particles divided by nm, the polymer has a degree of polymerization of an integer of 3 or more and 8×? or less with the proviso that the integer is a numerical value obtained by dropping a decimal fraction. The composite material is produced through a step of obtaining a dispersant comprising a polymer by polymerizing a vinyl monomer having a binding acidic group in the presence of polyamine or in an aqueous dilute dispersion, and a step of mixing the dispersant, fine nano-oxide particles, and a transparent resin material.
