Optium® DBM

Optimally demineralized1-4 putty that provides a natural osteoconductive scaffold and osteoinductive potential to encourage bone healing and fusion.

  • Osteoinductive Potential: Demineralized using proprietary PAD® technology that targets optimal residual calcium levels of 1-4% without compromising the grafts inherent osteoconductive properties or osteoinductive potential.1-4
  • Excellent Handling Properties: Moldable putty and flowable gel are designed to conform to the defect site.
  • Osteoconductive: Natural bone matrix facilitates cell attachment and proliferation.5
  • Sterile: Sterilized using proprietary and patented Allowash XG® technology which provides a sterility assurance level of 10-6, without compromising the graft’s inherent osteoconductive properties or osteoinductive potential.6,7
  • Proven Carrier: DBMs using glycerol as a carrier have extensive published clinical history and have proven safe and effective in bone void filling applications.8-16
  • Final Lot Testing: Every donor lot of final graft material is tested for osteoinductive potential using the nude rodent assay developed by Marshal Urist.
  • Ready-to-Use: No rehydration or thawing required, saving valuable operating room time.
  • Versatile: Available as putty or gel in multiple volumes to meet surgical needs.
Clinical Application

Fill bony voids or gaps of the skeletal system (e.g. extremities, spine, and pelvis) that are not intrinsic to the stability of the bony structure

  • Joint Reconstruction and Revision
  • Trauma
  • Spine
