DBX® Demineralized Bone Matrix (Trauma)

DBX® Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBM) is an allograft bone void filler processed by the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation (MTF).

DBX® Demineralized Bone Matrix (Trauma)

Features & Benefits

DBX® DBM is an osteoconductive bone void filler which has been shown to have osteoinductive potential* in a validated athymic mouse model. Each finished lot of tissue is tested for osteoinductive potential prior to release for clinical use.1 DBX DBM is ideal for a variety of applications within the cleared indications.

  • Available as Paste, Putty, Mix, and Injectable Putty
  • Demonstrated bone formation – high bone content, osteoinductive potential4
  • Inert biocompatible carrier2, pH-balanced3, nonhemolytic2
  • Resists movement under irrigation, maintains physical integrity5
