A leader and innovator in the manufacturing of hydroxyapatite, MedicalGroup is committed to high quality, reliability and excellence.
A specialist in the medical device industry, MedicalGroup manufactures hydroxyapatite (HA) used for the surface treatments of orthopedic implants, such as plasma spray coating, resorbable blasting and deposition.
Biomaterials and orthopedic cements are also made from hydroxyapatite, as are cosmetics and oral care products.
Because of its chemical composition, which is similar to bones and teeth, synthetic hydroxyapatite powder is used as a bone substitute and for the fixation of implants.
Hydroxyapatite powder is made from a mix of calcium nitrate and ammonium phosphate in an aqueous environment. From a pasty material and through a perfectly controlled process, a spherical and pure powder is developed.
MedicalGroup’s more than 25 years of experience allows us to develop different types of powders to fulfill our customers’ specific requirements.
Our expertise in surface treatments and plasma spray coatings allows us to support our customers in the adaptation of hydroxyapatite powders to their equipment.
MedicalGroup’s laboratory helps our customers with their international regulatory fillings (FDA, CE marking, SFDA, IQ, OQ, PQ validation) and controls each step of the hydroxyapatite manufacturing process. In addition to our commitment to high quality manufacturing, we are certified ISO 13485 :2004 and 21CFR820 compliant.
Because of its manufacturing expertise and laboratories, MedicalGroup supports its customers in:
♦ The qualitative analysis of powders and coatings,
♦ The development of custom hydroxyapatite powders,
♦ The set-up of plasma spray coating parameters,
♦ The regulatory assistance for international medical device standards and norms.
Implants and biomaterials
Hydroxyapatite is also used to manufacture orthopedic and dental bone substitutes, oral care products (toothpaste, mouthwash), collagens, cosmetics and for laboratory (chromatography) and pharmaceutical applications.
