SL Factor Absorption
This human histology illustrates what occurs when our graft material is placed in bone. The material becomes hydrated by extracellular fluid and operates as a growth medium. Our patented compound, SL Factor, exists in vacuoles within the material, scattered around the matrix. Multiple osteoblasts migrate from the surrounding bone into the graft material. In the upper right corner, an osteoblast is seen being fused to two of the vacuoles and absorbing SL Factor. As they migrate throughout the material, the osteoblasts organize it into functional, mineralized bone.
