Inspired by nature, motivated by health

At inSoma Bio we borrow nature’s own designs to develop unique products for reconstructive plastic surgery. Our product enables surgeons to use a person’s own tissue instead of synthetic implants and fillers to improve procedures like breast and facial reconstruction.

Fractomer Biomatrix

Ball Decoration


Fractomers are based on protein sequences naturally found in the human body.

Tissue Supportive

Fractomers provide support, shape, and biointegration for co-injected cells or tissues.

Thermal Switch

We have built in a thermal switch, so that our materials are only activated at body temperature.


Our materials are designed at the genetic level and produced without the need to harvest natural tissue.
