Does anyone know where to purchase medical grades PCL and PLA rods (1.75mm) for RepRap?

Thanks :-)

Well it won't be medical grade after it runs through a reprap, but I think [www.professionalplastics.com] carries it.
I used to work with scaffolding technologies for TE and we once bought PHB,D-PLA L-PLA, PLA/PLA copolymer and PCL, 100g each.
I remember it cost us 2500$USD for everything, so expect 100g of medical PLA to cost 500$ for 100gms.
We bought it from lakeshore biomaterials which is US-based but they shipped worldwide. Even to NZ :-)

If I were to buy medical grade PCL from lakeshore, would it come in filament form? I've only ever seen it as granules. If not, what is the best way for me to use these granules with my reprap?

Hi, I bought pla, phb.polyglyc and pcl from lakeshore and they only had granules at the time i bought it. It came in a cooled box and delivery was quite fast. If you need to know more about medical grade polymers just ask.

Check out these scaffolds. They can come as discs, tubes, well plates and sheets. You may customize the material and thickness of aligned fibers.
