Alvimédica has developed a unique process to deposit an ultrafine pure carbon film, iCarbofilm (commercially named “Bio Inductive Surface”), in all types of metal alloys such as nitinol and chromium-cobalt.
This innovative technology brings the iCarbofilm atomic structure to a similarity close to the diamond structure and its exceptional bio and hemocompatibility.
The Bio Inductive Surface leads to the selective absorption of albumin, which reduces the activation of blood factors responsible for the formation of clots and thrombi, minimizing the activation of platelets and promoting a fast and regular growth of the endothelium (100% in 7 days) which prevents the induction of an inflammatory response.
• Proven biocompatibility provided by the Carbofilm coating, accelerating the rate of endothelialization and coverage of the structure, reducing thrombogenicity.
• Excellent scaffolding and proximal radial strength and distal flexibility due to the unique progressive design of its cells.
• Platinum marks and non-shortening of the stent guarantee unmatched precision in the implant.
