Orbone® Cell and Tissue Bank started working with France Biobank Tissue Bank and Luxembourg Bone and Tissue Bank in Europe in 2009-2010. In addition, Orbone® made great contributions to the “regulation on the quality and safety of human tissues and cells and their centers”, in Turkey in order to strengthen the control of the allograft market and to increase the quality. These works were published in the official gazette on October 27, 2010.
Orbone® provided many information and documents to the institutions such as the Ministry of Health and the Turkish Medicines and Medical Devices Agency Advanced Treatment Medical Products Department (TITCK) by supporting the preliminary permit studies for allograft imports. After all the studies were completed, Orbone® became the first company to complete its preliminary applications and obtain the official sales permit in 2012. Orbone® is a company that advocates quality and safety at the forefront in the allograft sector and pioneered the enactment of product liability insurance.
Orbone® Cell and Tissue Bank, following the official approval of TITCK, has started to import human-derived tissue and bone from tissue banks such as France Biobank, Luxembourg Bone and Tissue Bank, European Medical Contract Manufacturing and Bacterin Inc. Orbone® has been the pioneer of the Allograft sector in Turkey by continuing its audit, quality and safety studies in full flow. In addition, in 2013, Orbone® took steps to establish a tissue bank in Turkey in an agreement with the partners in Europe.
Orbone® started to support SGK-SUT activities simultaneously in 2014. During the SUT studies, Orbone® made a mark in the sector with the imported tissues. Orbone® has signed transfer agreements for the advanced eCOO® Supercritical Co2 technology that increases the quality of operations.
Orbone® is Turkey’s first and only tissue and bone bank that produces human-derived tissue close to autogenous tissue quality with the most up-to-date and reliable technology in the processing of human bones and tissues, by using high-tech eCOO® Supercritical Co2 technology.
Orbone® has not imported cadavers from abroad since the first day we received our production permits. We collect human tissue from hospitals in our country as medical waste meticulously and under strict rules. We are proud to present all the hard and soft tissue groups to our surgeons and patients by using the highest quality technology in our country with 100% domestic and national facilities. This approach brings order and locality to the sector in the field of human-made tissues. Orbone® continues to contribute to the relevant institutions in Turkey by participating in business development programs with the Tissue Banks in Europe in the Human Origin Tissue sector, and to R&D studies in the field of tissue and technology development.
