GranuMas® is a Class III product certified with CE Mark (CE 586440) by BSI, UK. It is composed of Hydroxyapatite (HA), a synthetically-made bone graft of calcium phosphate material, which is similar to natural human bone mineral. Having composition and properties identical to human bone mineral, GranuMas® is an innovative alternative material for surgeries requiring bone grafting procedures for non-load bearing applications in Orthopaedics, ENT, Dental and Maxillofacial.
The fabrication of GranuMas® conforms to all the required criteria for surgical implants based on ASTM F1185-88 (1993) Standards: “Standard Specification for Composition of Ceramic Hydroxyapatite for Surgical Implants” and ISO 13779:2008 Standards: “Implants for surgery – Hydroxyapatite”.
His technology-driven project was the outcome of joint research efforts between SIRIM, Malaysian Institute of Nuclear Technology (MINT), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and International Islamic University of Malaysia (IIUM).
