What is Biocompatibility?

Biocompatibility is defined as the compatibility of materials, that are in physical, chemical or biological contact with the body, with the body’s systems, not damaging the surrounding tissues, compatibility with tissues, not exerting toxic effects and not causing inflammation. A biocompatible product is a product that is in harmony with the living thing and is not rejected by the immune system. Thus, a medical device is expected to elicit an optimal cellular or tissue response without producing undesirable, systemic effects.
