Bacterin Sponsors the 2012 Donate Life Rose Parade Float in Recognition of Donor Families

BOZEMAN and BELGRADE, Mont., Oct. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bacterin International Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex: BONE), a leader in the development of revolutionary bone graft material and antimicrobial coatings for medical applications, is sponsoring the 2012 Donate Life Rose Parade® Float entitled "...One More Day."

Bacterin and one of its procurement partners are sponsoring a donor family to attend the Rose Parade and will be recognized as one of the florographs that will be represented on the float.

Donate Life's ninth Rose Parade float entry carries 28 riders, 72 memorial 'florograph' portraits, and thousands of roses carrying personal messages of love, hope and remembrance. The float is designed to represent deceased organ, eye and tissue donors, living donors, and transplant recipients, reminding us all to make every day count and to increase donor awareness. The gift of donation can add years and quality of life to those in need of transplants.  

"We are proud to be a contributing partner and are privileged this year to have one of our organ donor portraits included on the float," said Guy Cook, Bacterin chairman and CEO. "Given the addition of four new recovery partners in recent months, we have an extended need for increasing the outreach and support for our partners and the donor families. The Donate Life Rose Parade Float is an ideal platform for recognizing the selfless gift of donation, and we look forward to continuing our sponsorship."

The float is supported by 60 official partners from across the nation, including organ and tissue recovery organizations, tissue banks, state donor registries, transplant centers and affiliated organizations. The 123rd Rose Parade, themed "Just Imagine," will take place Monday, January 2, 2012 at 10:00 a.m., featuring majestic floral floats, high-stepping equestrian units and spirited marching bands.
