The company's lead product in development is Amorphous Nano-Hydroxyapaite Powder. Nano-structured hydroxyapatite has several advantages over hydroxyapatite of larger particle size in its use in bone tissue engineering due to its higher surface area and consequently higher reactivity, which offers better cellular response. In addition, nano-sized hydroxyapatite is useful as an effective surface modification agent for binding numerous biological molecules.
