CryoLife to Distribute FDA-approved Hemostatic Agent Under Private Label
Date:4/17/2008

ATLANTA, April 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CryoLife, Inc. (NYSE: CRY), a biomaterials, medical device and tissue processing company, announced today that it has signed an exclusive three-year agreement with Minneapolis-based Medafor, Inc. Under terms of the agreement CryoLife will distribute Medafor's microporous polysaccharide hemostatic agent for use in cardiac and vascular surgery in the U.S. and for cardiac, vascular and general surgery, other than orthopaedic and ear, nose and throat surgery, outside the U.S. (excluding Japan and China).

CryoLife expects to begin distributing Hemostase MPH in the U.S. in the second quarter of 2008, except to approximately 41 hospitals for which Medafor will retain distribution rights until no later than December 31, 2008. Outside of the U.S., CryoLife expects to begin distributing Hemostase MPH in Canada, United Kingdom and Germany in the second quarter of 2008, with distribution in other markets beginning in 2009. Department of Defense hospitals are excluded from CryoLife's territory under the distribution agreement, but Veterans' Administration Hospitals are included.

The unique, absorbable powder hemostat, which received CE Mark approval in 2003 and FDA pre-market approval in September 2006, will be distributed by CryoLife under the private label name Hemostase MPH.

Hemostase MPH is developed using Medafor's exclusive, licensed Microporous Polysaccharide Hemospheres technology (MPH(R)), which yields a plant-based, flowable powder engineered to rapidly dehydrate blood, enhancing clotting on contact. When used as directed, this highly effective hemostatic agent facilitates the formation of a resilient, natural clot within just a few minutes.
