FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Nov 5. Collagen Matrix, Inc.announces that it has received FDA's 510(k) clearance of its SynOss(TM)Synthetic Mineral bone graft material intended for use in oral surgicalapplications involving bone repair.
SynOss Synthetic Mineral is an osteoconductive calcium phosphate basedbone graft material with an apatite structure similar to that of human bone.Unlike hydroxyapatite materials, SynOss' has a carbonate apatite structurewhich is comparable to the mineralized matrix structure of human bone.
