Axcelon Biopolymers Corp., a biomaterials company developing biocellulose based products for woundcare, cardiovascular and other non-medical applications announced that the Canadian Health Protection Branch has granted a medical device Class 2 license for its flagship product Nanoderm©.
Nanoderm© is a unique woundcare product indicated for a variety of treatments including burns, dermabrasions as well as acute and chronic wounds.
