Implantable shapes and film products offered by Genesis are extruded from PEEK resin that also meets or exceeds requirements of the latest version of ASTM F2026. The PEEK resin is produced in a cGMP clean room setting and in accordance with ISO 10993.

In contrast, medical grade semi-finished PEEK shapes are extruded from resin that satisfies ISO 10993 for devices exposed to bodily tissue and fluids for short periods, or up to 24 hours.
