nanoMAG Developing BioMg Alloy for Bone Fixation

After 3 years of cooperative development with a major orthopaedic OEM, nanoMAG has developed a novel alloy, BioMg 250, for the enhanced fixation of fractured or restructured bones, providing reportedly double the strength of commercial bioabsorbable polymer implants. 

Development efforts at nanoMAG have been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, in partnership with the University of Michigan, the University of Pittsburgh and North Carolina State A&T University (NCAT). Currently, small animal studies currently are underway at NCAT, in order to measure the interaction with bones and to assure non-toxicity, and the University of Michigan has performed computerized tomography on select samples with a state-of-the-art nano-CT unit in the Orthopaedic Research Laboratories.
