It is reportedly set to provide consultancy and a comprehensive materials testing service for dental and biomaterial manufacturers

BiMaTs is co-founded by internationally recognised academic researchers Professor Josette Camilleri and Professor Will Palin. 

The consultancy element will be key to BiMaTs according to the University of Birmingham, which will offer a range of services to assess the mechanical and physical properties of materials and the biological properties of material-tissue interfaces, including developing protocols that are specific to the needs of individual clients.

BiMaTs has been set up as using a model of commercialisation known as an Operating Division, which allows industry rapid access to flexible, 'cutting-edge' services based on Birmingham’s academic expertise.
