BIOCRYL RAPIDE™ Biocomposite Material
BIOCRYL RAPIDE™ is a biocomposite material. A proprietary Micro-Particle Dispersion (MPD) manufacturing process ensures a homogenous dispersion of the composite materials*, while ensuring osteoconductive β-TCP is in close apposition with the surrounding bone tissues.
Features & Benefits
One Material, Multiple Implant Options
DePuy Synthes Mitek Sports Medicine offers a BIOCRYL RAPIDE™ Family of Implants consisting of suture anchors and interference screws.
BioComposite 70% PLGA/30% β-TCP
Faster resorbing Second-Generation Resorbable Co-Polymer of Poly-L-Lactic Acid and Poly-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) plus β-TriCalcium Phosphate (β-TCP).1
Resorbable & Promotes Boney Ingrowth
Pre-clinical and clinical testing has shown that BIOCYL RAPIDE Material resorbs over time, followed by bone in-growth.1,2,
Pure Medical Grade β-TCP
Ensures purity of β-TCP without added fillers.
Micro Particle Dispersion Technology
MPD is a proprietary manufacturing process that ensures a homogenous blend of β-TCP and PLGA particles. Dispersion of the composite particles is critical to the material strength properties.3
β-TCP enables the implant to be visible on x-ray.
* Non-homogeneous composites may result in a material with compromised or variable strength properties due to stress risers within the material.
