Trusted Quality Mark 2017-2018

A five-step approach

Implants listed below comply with the CleanImplant Quality Mark Criteria 2017-2018 according to the consensus recommendation of the Scientific Advisory Board released September 2017.

For the comprehensive quality assessment five implant samples from each implant type have been analyzed by means of SEM and elemental analysis. The list of implants (in alphabetic order) with the "Trusted Quality Mark 2017-2018" is being continually updated and extended.



Neutral sampling of 5 implants 

3 implants are ordered ex factory + 2 implants of the same type are provided via mystery shopping from practices. 


Unpacking and scanning under clean room conditions 

All 5 collected samples are carefully unpacked, mounted and scanned in a clean room environment according Class 100 US Fed. 209, Class 5 DIN EN ISO 14644-1.


Externally audited process of analysis 

SEM imaging and elemental analysis (EDS) are performed according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation process (competence of testing and calibration laboratories) with external audits and multi-annual re-assessments.


Full-size and high-resolution SEM images

A special FSHR SEM image - digitally composed of more than 360 single SEM images in a magnification of 500x - shows always the complete surface; i.e. no “cherry-picking” of  clean looking areas.


Peer-review process

Two members of the Scientific Advisory Board independently review the comprehensive report of analysis and correspondent clinical documentation or multi-annual PMCF studies (Post-Marketing Clinical Follow-Up) of the analyzed implant type showing survival rates of more than 95% for the device or device family.

SEM images from a previous study with older Implants 
(Production Date 2012-2015)
Data and images shown in the database below are based on single implant analyses, performed 2014 -2015 with implants of production date 2012-2015. Thus, results shown in the gallery below cannot be compared to the new results of 2017/2018 analyses under stringent requirements. 
Implants of new production period that are in the process to - or already received - the "CleanImplant Quality Mark 2017/2018" award, are indicated with an asterisk (*).
The complete report based on a research study 2014-2015 (released April 2016) with 822 pages and 2.950 SEM images of 135 different implants (95 brands) including 150 qualitative and quantitative elemental analyses can be ordered for a fee (PDF or printed version). 

Selection of implants is shown in alphabetic order.
