Biobank are the largest processing bank of donated femoral heads in France. The Biobank Supercrit® process is based on the delipidation of bone tissue by a non-toxic fluid , CO2 in supercritical state, combined with a chemical oxidation of the residual protiens contained in the pores of the cancellous tissue.
At the end of the Supercrit® procedure, the trabecular bone tissue is perfectly clean and retains its initial architecture and volume

There are many possibilities of bone graft that can then be machined and prepared from the femoral heads. One of which is a consistent range of cannulated bone dowels.
