Abstract Calcium phosphate (CaP) bioceramics are popular implant material for bone repair, substitution or augmentation in orthopaedic and maxillofacial surgery. There are various techniques to produce calcium phosphate granules: crushing of sintered blocks, dripping, gelcasting and stirring mixtures of immiscible liquids. In current research multiform CaP granules are made through three different techniques: (1) by foaming as-recieved CaP powder, (2) by crushing of dried blocks, (3) by crumbling of wet precipitates, followed by sintering at 1150oC for 2 hours.
