During the design stages of this innovative product, our aim was to create a fastening tack that could easily be used in any type of bone and able to firmly fix the membranes currently used in GBR (both re-absorbable and non-re-absorbable) and grids. The blue coloring studied and selected for quick visible identification in the removal stages of the GBR procedures.
The Supertack tack
The Supertack tack is characterized by a head 2.5 mm in diameter, a common size for this type of device. The tack stem has a conical shape designed for a quick removal and no or minimal tissue damage. The choice of the specific blue coloring facilitates its detection under soft tissues at the time of removal.
Supertack tacks are packaged in the “white room” (dedicated clean room) after a “plasma” cleaning of the surfaces. They are sold in the sterile and sealed package.
Surgical Set Specs
Medical grade polymer box, suitable for sterilization in class B steam autoclaves
Organizer with lid with design and shape for maximum stability and to prevent overturn
Applicator with anti-abrasive and anti-oxidation coating
Interchangeable applicator tips built of special stainless steel
Hammer with ergonomic handle and engineered with calibrated mass for most accurate tack insertion force
Feedback from the user’s filed is the main drive and source of data for our continue improvement.
Supertack Tack are packaged sterile in the clean room. For this reason, they are sold in packages with a limited number of pieces for maximum efficiency in use.
High quality materials
All materials are carefully selected. Product design is guided by strict engineering and biomedical studies, in order to ensure non-toxic, strong and durable materials.
MC Bio is very environmentally conscious. In fact, all our products, with the exception of tacks and screws (disposable by definition), are reusable and durable. In addition, most of our products are recyclable.
The Tacks are manufactured using the Astm F136 certified TiGr5. The ASTM F136 standard specifies that this type of titanium is suitable for production of medical devices to be implanted in the human body.
NO! The blue and bronze color of the Tack surface is obtained by a process of titanium anodization. The anodization of titanium, produces a controlled layer of oxide, such process creates a light refractive effect (see rainbow) so our eye sees different colors.
NO! Since no dyes have been introduced, there are no toxic elements on the surface but only titanium oxide. Titanium oxide is the main element that makes the titanium family extremely biocompatible.
NO! Biocompatibility is ensured by compliance to the ASTM F136 (American regulatory system)
The applicator is composed of the handle and tip so that only the tip may need to be replaced in case of damage. Different types of tips are also available, to satisfy any technical depth request of surgeons.
NO! The tips are manufactured with special stainless-steel alloys that guarantee excellent resistance to deformation.
When the bone graft has reached final healing. There are no time limits, as the titanium used is classified for implant use. It remains the final decision of the Surgeon.
For this area, a specific tool has been created: the lingual applicator (Back Applicator).
NO! The tacks to be removed, need a very small incision through which the nails can be engaged and extracted with the same tool used for their insertion.
