Giving nature its best chance
GLYMATRIX® technology mimics the natural collagen cycle in our body, a natural biochemical process called glycation. GLYMATRIX® is what powers OSSIX® products for guided bone regeneration (GBR) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR).
Clinically proven, GLYMATRIX® is covered by over 100 scientific publications, with extensive clinical experience worldwide spanning decades in hundreds of thousands of procedures. This proprietary core technology is the subject of several international patents and is the culmination of years of research into glycation as a cross-linking mechanism.
GLYMATRIX® technology utilizes naturally occurring nontoxic sugar to cross-link collagen molecules, producing a collagen matrix which serves as the core for OSSIX® regenerative solutions:
- OSSIX™ Bone – ossifying collagen sponge promotes vital bone without remnants
- OSSIX® Plus – the only ossifying membrane resistant to degradation when exposed
- OSSIX® Volumax – unique volumizing, ossifying collagen scaffold
GLYMATRIX® is fully bioprogrammable for specifically engineering long-lasting biomaterials with enhanced stability and specialized properties needed for OSSIX® products. Ideally suited for reconstructive and aesthetic medicine, it enables tailoring unique biomaterials to perform in a manner appropriate to their intended application, such as GBR and GTR for dental implants. This represents a novel design of collagen-based bio-matrices — the resultant cross-linked collagen matrix looks and feels like part of the patient’s own tissue. GLYMATRIX®-based products are trusted by tens of thousands of clinicians worldwide.
