Lithoz launches LithaBone HA 480 materials for 3D printed bone replacements

Lithoz has introduced the event of the LithaBone HA 480 for 3D printed bone replacements.

The corporate says the fabric, which is a bioresorbable ceramic bone graft substitute, was developed in ‘intensive collaboration’ with customers of earlier Lithoz bone graft substitute merchandise.

This materials, nevertheless, is alleged to characteristic substantial enhancements round mechanical properties, greater wall thickness, potential geometries, lattice construction dimension and processability.

Lithoz’ LithaBone HA 480 allows considerably greater wall thicknesses than earlier Lithoz bone substitute supplies, from 1.6mm to 10mm, whereas additionally displaying ‘strongly decreased overpolymerisation with an improved depth of treatment to attain a extra steady manufacturing course of. The corporate additionally claims the LithaBone HA 480 has a ten-fold longer shelf life, and allows elements which might be simpler to wash, which means better availability and quicker processes.

German medical firm KLS Martin has been a consumer of 3D printed bone substitute implants since 2015, and has already utilized the LithaBone HA 480.

“We at KLS have been producing CMF implants for human use on our Lithoz CeraFab printer since 2015, with glorious outcomes when it comes to accuracy of match, tolerability and therapeutic success,” commented Adem Aksu, Director Growth Biomaterials at KLS. “We have already got had the prospect to work with HA 480 and the outcomes are excellent: from mechanical properties over greater wall thickness to dimension and lattice constructions, LithaBone HA 480 has satisfied us of a substantial enchancment in comparison with its predecessor.”
