FREMONT, Calif., May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Biomerix Corporation and Cellon today announced a strategic distribution agreement for the Biomerix 3D Scaffold, a novel three-dimensional tissue scaffold. Under the agreement, Cellon will market and distribute the Biomerix 3D Scaffold to research institutions across Europe.
Comprised of a non-degradable, three-dimensional, open-cell polycarbonate polyurethane, the Biomerix 3D Scaffold is designed to mimic the nature and function of the extracellular matrix (ECM). Its novel macroporous microarchitecture consists of a network of interconnecting cells and pores, creating an environment highly conducive to applications in regenerative medicine, drug discovery, and stem cell research. The unique chemistry and microarchitecture of the Biomerix 3D Scaffold has been demonstrated to support optimal cell proliferation and superior cell viability in both in-vitro and in-vivo studies involving diverse cell types, including hematopoetic stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, human adipose stem cells, human osteoblasts, fibroblasts, and fibrochondrocytes.
"Biomerix is delighted to form this new strategic partnership with Cellon, further strengthening each company's European presence in the field of regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, and drug discovery, development and delivery. The proprietary Biomerix Biomaterial used to manufacture the Biomerix 3D Scaffold has received seven US and international regulatory clearances for different indications in soft tissue repair, orthopedics, and vascular embolization," said Kenneth Hayes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Biomerix Corporation.
