Trace Element Analysis of Hydroxyapatite for Medical Applications - Test Method - ISO 13779-3 (2008)


A detailed protocol for determination of concentrations of arsenic, cadmium, mercury and lead in hydroxyapatite is outlined in ISO 13779-3 Implants for surgery - Hydroxyapatite - Part 3: Chemical analysis and characterization of crystallinity and phase purity.

Applications and Benefits

ISO 13779-1 and ISO 13779-2 define limits for a variety of properties for hydroxyapatite implants and hydroxyapatite coatings respectively. The parameters defined are Ca/P ratio, trace levels of As, Cd, Hg and Pb, phase purity, minor phases and crystallinity.

Form of Results

Tabulated results of trace metals within hydroxyapatite.
