Biomaterials Product catalog 2024 | 3 Allogeneic bone graft substitute MinerOss® A MinerOss® A is an allograft made from human donor bone. Scientific studies have shown that allografts are most similar to the patient‘s autologous bone in use. They integrate quickly and have the potential for remodeling [1–5]. MinerOss® A is processed by Cells+Tissuebank Austria (C+TBA) in a multistep purification process for safe use – after the donor tissue has undergone a stringent serological screening protocol. It consists of allogeneic bone tissue and enables reliable and predictable results for the regeneration of bone defects. MinerOss® A is largely derived from donated human femoral heads that are received and screened following hip replacement surgery. It is available as granules, blocks and plates. Due to the natural composition of the bone, which contains mineralized human collagen, MinerOss® A exhibits a high biological regenerative capacity in combination with a natural remodeling behavior [4]. Therefore, MinerOss® A is an excellent alternative to harvesting bone from patients. Surgical intervention to harvest an autologous graft is eliminated, reducing morbidity for the patient.
