Addbio is introducing the Zolidiser, the first ever machine to add bone-strengthening drugs to implants on an industrial scale. The Zolidiser is purpose-made, a one of its kind machine, developed to enable commercialization of the Addbio product Zolidd.
"Addition of bone-strengthening drugs to implants will change the industry" states Philip Procter, orthopaedic industry expert. The Zolidiser was developed in close collaboration with Addbio partners Pharmaceutical Business Consultants Ltd (PBC) in Shannon, Ireland, and Devex Mekatronik in Linköping and has a capacity of up to 60 000 coated screw implants a year. Manufacturing and final development steps before launch are to be set up at PBC who have both extensive industry experience and appropriate clean room facilities.
