More than a barrier. Versatile flexibility.Membrane Flex™

Desirable handling characteristics

  • Because it’s not side specific, it’s easy to handle and to place
  • With outstanding flexibility, it easily drapes over defects and naturally conforms to contours
  • Flexibility with placement as it can be easily repositioned for precise placement
  • Can be placed dry or hydrated
  • Even when hydrated, does not adhere to gloves or instruments
  • Takes sutures or tacks with ease, for simple yet secure fixation

Dependable strength

  • Proven biomechanical strength enhances fixation assurance*
  • In pre-clinical testing, of the suture pull out strength was three times higher than BioGide®*
  • Because of its significantly higher suture pullout strength, can be firmly anchored to surrounding tissue with minimal risk of tearing or detachment*

Supports wound healing

  • Biocompatible because it’s meticulously manufactured from highly purified intact porcine collagen and minimally cross-linked for predictable resorption
  • Reduced degree of inflammation and foreign body response as compared to BioGide® in pre-clinical testing*
  • Protects the graft area from unwanted soft tissue infiltration during the initial phase of healing while still allowing for healthy nutrient transfer
  • Resorbs predictably over 3 to 4 months as new host collagen is simultaneously regenerated
  • With a slower initial rate of resorption than BioGide®, it provides greater initial stability during the critical early weeks of healing*
  • Shown through in vitro and in vivo pre-clinical testing to exceed many of the performance characteristics of BioGide®*
  • Available sizes: 15x20mm, 20x30mm, 30x40mm

This new offering along with other recent additions to the Straumann portfolio are more than products they provide customers with a total solution that yields patient satisfaction and practice success.
