Nanovis is a nanotechnology-focused spinal implant company.

Here are six things to know:

1. The company develops and manufactures implant nanosurfaces, implantable scaffolds and injectable biomaterials.

2. Nanovis' FortiCore Implant Platform has the modulus and imaging properties of a PEEK core.

3. The company's implants use PEEK-Optima by InVibio.

4. Nanovis launched the FortiCore PLIF after the 2,000th FortiCore interbody implantation.

5. Thomas Webster, PhD, the chair of Boston-based Northeastern University's chemical engineering department, designed the FortiCore PLIF and TLIF spinal implants' nanofeatures.

6. The implants' surface features are designed to make it difficult for bacteria to attach, thereby reducing post-implantation infection risk and the need for antibiotics.
