VOI introduces HyProtect antimicrobial coated implants

by Poppy Willa

HyProtect™ is a pure elemental-silver based plasma coating which provides a continuous diffusion of silver ions to prevent the growth of bacteria on the surface of the implant for up to 3 months.

HyProtect™ is a completely biocompatible coating that provides antimicrobial protection against a broad spectrum of known bacteria, including multi-resistant bacteria, and has been used in biomedical technology for over 10 years.

The hydrophilic surface creates an environment favorable to osteoblastcells and facilitates osseointegration.
