Operating at Nanoscale Where the ”Rules” are Different

 

At Implant Surfaces,

we have consistently pursued the development of novel solutions for difficult problems in the medical device industry. The most challenging problems arise from the interaction between the device surface material and the body. To meet these challenges, we integrate the physics, microbiology, protein chemistry, and immunochemistry of the device surface at the nanoscale to correct mismatches and bridge any biocompatibility gaps it may have with the body. This revolutionary multidisciplinary materials engineering approach at a quantum level has enabled us to create implant surfaces that at various times have been considered impossible.

We proudly present some of our Impossible Surfaces.

 

What Does Serious Osteoblast Attachment Look Like?

Just Like This.

We have figured out how to attach osteoblasts to implants with little interference from fibroblasts. Photo: osteoblasts (stained) with direct on-growth at 8 weeks to IntimateBond™ Osteoblast coated PEEK (Tan).

Which Nanoscale Surface Attaches Osteoblasts
and
Which Attaches Vascular Endothelials?

We’ve discovered that each cell type requires a different and distinct nanotopology to maximize attachment.

Antimicrobial Impact
You Select.

• Select Intensity - 1X to 4X
• Select Duration – 7 days to 9 months

We provide a unique, higher-energy form of silver oxide that enables full control of antimicrobial elution rates and duration while allowing tissue healing.

Not as Cool as a Great Pair of Shades, but Stops the Glare Much Better.

Increase the surface hardness while removing as much as 95%+ of reflected light.
