Features & Benefits

Features Benefits
Osteoinductive bone void filler Has been shown to have osteoinductive potential* in a validated athymic mouse model. Each finished lot of tissue is tested for osteoinductive potential prior to release for clinical use.
Available as Putty, Mix, Strips and Injectable Putty Multiple formulations available to meet surgeon's needs
Demonstrated bone formation High bone content, osteoinductive potential, histologic verification
Inert biocompatible carrier, pH-balanced, nonhemolytic The DBX carrier, sodium hyaluronate, is similar to the naturally occuring hyaluronate found in the body
Excellent handling characteristics Maintains physical integrity and resists movement under irrigation

 *It is unknown how the osteoinductive potential, measured in the athymic mouse model or the alkaline phosphatase assay, will correlate with clinical performance in human subjects.
