nanoMAG® LLC, an engineered biomaterials manufacturer, is developing and commercializing next generation, high-strength, light-weight nanomagnesium biocompatible materials with applications in orthopaedic medicine. nanoMAG offers a bioabsorbable magnesium alloy (BioMg®) that is as strong as bone and offers a source of nutrients to the bone regrowth. By creating an alloy of elements that are naturally found in the body and a design that appropriately controls the rate of dissolution, the BioMg® implant can supply the temporary structural reinforcement needed during healing while avoiding all of the complications associated with current permanent metal alloy implants.
Although our primary focus is the biomedical implant market opportunity, we have secondary market opportunities that benefit from the high strength-to-weight ratio of magnesium. These secondary markets include external fixation devices and braces as well as specialty products for recreational sports equipment and other manufacturing uses.
Put simply, nanoMAG creates, develops and manufactures specialty magnesium alloy products working in collaboration with our commercial clients.
