Perfect partner for remodelling bone defects rapidly

Reliable and convenient, NanoBone is a next generation, fully synthetic bone graft substitute.
Consisting of nanostructured hydroxyapatite (HA) embedded in a silica gel matrix – suspended in a hydrogel/polymer silica carrier – it provides the fullest support for bone regeneration at every stage of the healing process.

  • Comparable healing rate to autograft without the costs and complications of harvesting1
  • Rapid absorption and reliable bone fusion1
  • Proven osteoinductive properties2
  • Early osteogenesis – silica matrix exchanged for autologous proteins within 10 days3
  • Patented nanostructure and optimised composition4
  • Preloaded, versatile and ready to use4

Patented nanostructure and optimised composition

Unlike traditional synthetic HA scaffolds, the HA in NanoBone is precipitated and unsintered to preserve its highly porous and permeable nanoarchitecture and degradation properties. When combined with the high porosity silica gel matrix, NanoBone offers distinct design properties for successful bone healing:5

• Nanostructure of HA platelets is identical in morphology to HA in bone6,7,8
• Nanostructure increases autologous protein enrichment3,9
• Proven osteoinductive properties2

Nanostructure of HA platelets is identical in morphology to HA in bone

NanoBone is precipitated to achieve a HA morphology that mimics the HA in natural bone and ensures that complete natural bone remodelling takes place. Traditional sintered HA consists of larger connected crystals which lower porosity and its ability to degrade.10,11

HA diffraction patterns8

Nanostructure increases autologous protein enrichment

High inner surface area is key to biological efficiency. Increasing the interaction between NanoBone and serum increases autologous
protein enrichment and formation of an extracellular matrix to start bone healing.3,9,11

Specific surface area9,11,12

Proven osteoinductive properties

Exchange of the silica gel for autologous proteins, in combination with nanostructured HA, provides a compound very similar to that of skeletal bone and promotes bone remodelling.2,11
