Who We Are
Bone SA was established in 1994 and is a registered Public Benefit Organisation by the South African Revenue Services in terms of section 30 of the income Tax Act, in compliance with the National Health Act of 61 of 2003. The company is fully ISO 9000:20015 accredited and is a signatory to the SAMED code of ethical conduct, giving customers and business partners complete assurance of world class standards of service and governance.
What We Do
Our main aim, as described in our Memorandum of Incorporation is to:
- Promote the interests of people disabled by disease or injury through the production and distribution of bone and tissue allograft
- provide competitively products and relevant services to our clients
- Utilise income derived from the sales of tissue products to further the main objectives of the company
- Strive to improve our products, processes, and protocols to optimize the impact of all donated tissue
The Foundation We Build On
To us, ‘ethics’ means the way we do things.
Bone SA is more than just a business – we do not sell ‘things’; we work with and for people. In all cases, our priority is to care about the human beings who make our business possible.
From the incredibly generous donors who gift tissue, to the recipient patients disabled by disease or injury, the thousands of healthcare workers we encounter and our staff, who tirelessly work to deliver the best solutions to South Africa, we care.
And we show our caring through our values – INTEGRITY, RELIABILITY, INNOVATION, EXCELLENCE.
Our INTEGRITY compels us do the right thing fairly, consistently, and respectfully. We preserve the dignity of our donors and recipients and treat each other, our clients, and our partners with respect. We believe that respect is the cornerstone of trust and we value the trust all our stakeholders place in us.
We understand that all our actions impact human lives. We accept that we have an obligation to promote RELIABILITY in everything we do. Our tissue engineering facility, systems and products are managed according to international quality standards. Besides complying with best-of-class standards, we continuously strive to improve competence in all the areas we work in.
INNOVATION is our lifeblood. Vitanova, Bone SA’s state-of-the-art tissue bank in the Western Cape, is culmination of 25 years of fostering innovation in the tissue engineering sector. Through academic and research partnerships, collaboration with other tissue banks and procurement organisations and sponsorships for education, training and research, Bone SA has worked tirelessly to ensure that tissue engineering in South Africa progresses.
Thousands of South Africans receive life enhancing bone transplants to heal bone fractures, fill in bone defects, create new bone where it has been lost or replace parts of bone that have been damaged in an accident or as a result of disease, etc.
Bone SA is a Non-profit Company (NPC), whose main objective is the promotion of the interests of people who have been disabled by disease or injury. We do this by bringing together donors and recipients in co-operation with the Centre for Tissue Engineering (CTE) at the Tshwane University of Technology.
