Ortec, as a supplier, offers a range of monomers used in the biomaterials market. These monomers are of the highest quality and are readily available. They are produced in the US and supplied worldwide. Altasorb Monomers are used to manufacture bioabsorbable polymers that are used in pharmaceutical applications and for the production of medical devices.

As a contract manufacturer we can also produce your speciality bioabsorbable polymers from these monomers. This vertical integration combined with our manufacturing capabilities allow us to be highly proficient in custom polymer production.

Ortec can help you foster your product from early process scale-up through full production while maintaining a high level of confidentiality. We have the expertise to help you through process validations and qualification, and we have manufactured products under FDA regulations CFR 210, 211, 810 and 110. We constantly review new regulatory practices to ensure compliance. Ortec has dedicated a 65,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility to our cGMP manufacturing and related services. Located on 45 acres, this plant includes laboratories, pilot manufacturing suites and full-scale production areas. All chemical handling sections are designed as low particulate environments with 95% filtered air. Our 2,500 square foot validated class 100,000 clean room contains USP water and UV-filtered lights and windows.
