Company Profile

Our roots
The roots of CAM Bioceramics B.V. lie in 1985, when HC Implants B.V. and CAM Implants B.V. were established as a spin-off from the University of Leiden. In 1989, both HC and CAM Implants set up a quality system based on the American cGMP regulations and guidelines. In 1993, Osteotech Inc, an American producer of human allografts, acquired HC and CAM Implants and in 1994, gained the first ISO certification. Following a management buyout in 2002, HC and CAM had fused to become CAM Implants B.V. which became an independent, privately owned company. CAM Implants B.V. changed its name to CAM Bioceramics B.V. in 2008.

Pioneer
In the 1980s, we were the first company to provide innovative HA plasma-sprayed coatings on orthopedic implants. Since then, our pioneering work has led to the worldwide adoption of plasma- sprayed hydroxyapatite coatings. HA Coating was the first step in the formation of the fully-fledged organization we are today.

In-house R&D and manufacturing
As a dedicated contract development and manufacturing organization, we have set up robust processes to manufacture an extensive portfolio 

of orthobiologic calcium phosphates. CAM Bioceramics is able to develop, manufacture and package orthobiologic calcium phosphate powders, granules, blocks and excipients. We deliver these components to many industry leaders in the orthopedic, dental and aesthetic sectors.

Robust ISO 13485 compliance
Our entire team at CAM Bioceramics is committed to meeting and exceeding customers’ expectations. Our class-7 cleanrooms enable our experienced staff of engineering, production, and quality assurance & control specialists to produce to robust ISO 13485 compliance, while maintaining a competitive pricing strategy.

Close to global hubs
Our offices and in-house production facilities are located in Leiden Bio Science Park, a leading life sciences cluster. Situated close to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and other major European and global logistics hubs, we provide a highly reliable service to customers all over the world.

Processes

All of our materials are manufactured using raw materials that we synthesize in-house. With several different production methods available, we can offer considerable flexibility and a wide range of products. We have production methods for large volumes, as well as efficient processes in place for smaller quantities. From our satisfied customers, we know that we have a unique combination of knowledge, expertise and production capacity.

Our in-house production processes include:

  • Spray drying
  • Sintering
  • Sieving/Classifying
  • Milling
  • High Shear Granulation
  • Crushing
  • High Pressure Compressing

Our approach of using in-house production of the raw materials allows us to control the output to the highest possible degree. All of the in-process and final controls you would expect are available:

  • XRD, FTIR measurements on chemical composition
  • Elemental analyses on impurities
  • Laser diffraction, density measurements and SEM imaging for particle characterization
  • Tensile strength testing for coating purposes

Our in-process controls guarantee that we comply with applicable standards (ISO, USP and Ph. Eur), and also assure that our batch-to-batch consistency is monitored.

To live up to our reputation, we develop powders and granules using production, rather than lab equipment. This enables us to safeguard process validation and production, without the need to address scaling up issues.

If you have developed an innovative calcium phosphate or similar material yourself, and are looking for an industrial partner to scale up, please contact us.
