Corticalis: Creating optimal bone regenerationPublished Descember 10th 2018
Corticalis AS was founded in 2001 by Profs Jan Eirik Ellingsen and Staale Petter Lyngstadaas to make material contributions to dentistry. Still, the company’s main assets are immaterial. Since 2001 Corticalis has successfully developed, out-licensed, and sold a number of patent portfolios to major players in the dental implant industry.
"Our vision at Corticalis is that all our products should be thoroughly tested - to more stringent standards than those found in current regulations. We use known materials and manufacture our products in a new way. This is why we believe our products will be a game changer in the medical device market."
Håvard J. Haugen (Research manager)
Corticalis’ main goal is to create optimal bone regeneration. In order to do this, they develop products that enable bone regeneration from both a biological and a 3D structural, mechanical guided (3D-GBR) bone regeneration approach. Corticalis focuses R & D on three new technologies: a titanium based ceramic bone graft material (NuBone®), a synthetic peptide family (NuPep™), and a paste for peri-implantitis treatment (NuGel™). NuGel™ has also been developed to combat oral bacterial infections without antibiotics, to aid in the struggle against MDR bacteria.
"Conditions such as trauma, tumors, cancer, periodontitis and osteoporosis may lead to bone loss, reduced bone growth and lower bone volume. To help these patients, it is critical to find methods to improve bone growth and to regain bone anatomy. Our NuBone may be used as a framework for the cells participating in the bone regeneration process, but also as a substitute for lost bone structure."
S. Petter Lyngstadaas (CEO)
As entrepreneurs, it is important for Corticalis to be part of a community with other like-minded colleagues. ShareLab offers this possibility. In addition, the company also has access to the lab-space needed to continue experimenting and enhancing their products - ShareLab fits the bill perfectly!
The ShareLab team is excited to have Corticalis as a member and wish them the best of luck!
