BOSTON, July 23, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- NanoFUSE is pleased to announce the market release of NanoSTRIP, a 100% bioactive glass synthetic biologic strip indicated for spine and orthopedic use. Bioactive glass is a calcium phosphate coated silica that forms hydroxyapatite (HA) similar to human bone. Bioactive glass has been clinically-proven in orthopedics for over 30 years and now NanoFUSE Biologics has used advanced research and manufacturing techniques to create a 100% bioactive glass strip optimized for spine surgery.
Orthopedic Spine Surgeon and Professor Kingsley R. Chin, M.D. says, "The exciting development with the 100% bioactive glass NanoSTRIP is it can reduce the need for human tissue. We see it laying in the posteolateral gutter or packing in and around interbodies."
"The customizable nature of NanoSTRIP gives surgeons exciting options for crafting biologics specific to patient needs," said NanoFUSE President, Jake Lubinski, "We are working with some of the top biologics scientists and spine surgeons to expand our product portfolio."
The NanoFUSE Biologics NanoSTRIP is available in 50 mm and 100 mm lengths. A 200mm version will soon be released specifically for scoliosis.
