Our Core Values
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.
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.

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
- High Shear Granulation
- 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.
