Laboratory analysis of hydroxyapatite (PAH)

What is hydroxyapatite (HAP) and why analyze it?

Hydroxyapatite is a calcium phosphate that belongs to the apatite family, a generic name for phosphates of varying composition. Also known as calcium hydroxyapatite, it accounts for up to 50% of bone mass and is the main mineral component of tooth enamel, dentin and bone.

Hydroxyapatite can be used as a filler to replace amputated bone or as a coating to facilitate growth within prosthetic implants, so some modern dental implants are coated with hydroxyapatite.

For this, the support of a laboratory of analysis and expertise allows you to realize your industrial projects by ensuring the conformity of your products.
