Argonaut® – porcine collagen membrane

Argonaut is a long lasting, conformable barrier membrane that drapes easily for graft site contours. It has excellent strength and stability for optimal graft site protection. Argonaut membrane is a completely resorbable collagen membrane produced from porcine pericardium in a standardized, controlled purification process and used to support guided tissue and bone regeneration, for covering implants, and for periodontal tissue regeneration. Because of the special structure and strong fiber-linking of the pericardium, Argonaut membrane offers a naturally long barrier function without chemical cross-linking, allowing for predictable regeneration particularly of large defects.1-3
