More than a barrier. Versatile flexibility.

This collagen membrane is easy to handle and provides outstanding flexibility. It easily drapes over defects and naturally conforms to contours.

Straumann® Membrane Flex™ provides flexibility and strength in an easy-to-handle, easy-to-suture barrier for soft tissue support and graft containment. Meticulously manufactured from highly purified intact porcine collagen and minimally crosslinked, it’s biocompatible and predictably resorbable. It naturally conforms to defects and contours—plus, it’s easy to reposition. Once in place, it can be firmly anchored to surrounding tissue with minimal risk of tearing or detachment, thanks to its higher suture pullout strength.*

PROCESSING ASSURES COMPATIBILITY
DESIRABLE HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS
  • Not side specific
  • Can be placed dry or hydrated
  • Even when hydrated, does not adhere to gloves or instruments
  • Can be easily repositioned for precise placement
  • Takes sutures or tacks with ease, for simple yet secure placement
DEPENDABLE STRENGTH
  • Proven biomechanical strength enhances fixation assurance*
  • In pre-clinical testing, suture pullout strength was three times higher than Bio-Gide®*
SUPPORTS WOUND HEALING
  • Reduced degree of inflammation and foreign body response as compared to Bio-Gide® in pre-clinical testing at early timepoints*
  • Protects the graft area from unwanted soft tissue infiltration during the initial phase of healing while still allowing for healthy nutrient transfer
  • Resorbs predictably over 3 to 4 months as new host collagen is simultaneously regenerated*
  • With a slower initial rate of resorption than Bio-Gide®, provides greater initial stability during the critical early weeks of healing*
  • Shown through in vitro and in vivo pre-clinical testing to exceed several of the performance characteristics of Bio-Gide®*
