Straumann® Membrane Plus 
Mastering predictability.

Durable collagen membrane from bovine tendon

Made from bovine tendon collagen, one of the purest forms of collagen, Straumann® Membrane Plus is a durable and long-lasting barrier membrane.5,7,8,9

It enhances graft stabilization and bone growth by providing soft tissue support3 and space maintenance4 over a predictable time-frame. Thanks to the cross-linked structure, even if Membrane Plus is left exposed, its performance remains reliable.8

Features and benefits

Durable and long lasting

Meticulously manufactured from bovine tendon collagen in one of its purest forms, Membrane Plus is biocompatible, cross-linked for predictable resorption rates, and delivered sterile.


Effective reinforcement

Protects the graft area from unwanted soft tissue infiltration during the initial phase of healing.1,8,9 Predictably resorbs after 6 months, eliminating the need for a second-stage procedure to remove the membrane.2,10 


Desirable handling

  • Not side-specific, enabling easy placement.6
  • Rigid yet thin membrane (0.3 mm). 
  • Molds to site even with minimal hydration.2
  • High tensile strength (≥40.0N).
