DSM Biomedical Announces Continued Partnership with Spinelab
Date:9/14/2010

BERKELEY, Calif., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- DSM Biomedical, a global leader in biomedical materials science, and its Berkeley based operation, DSM PTG, today announced the company has extended its partnership with Spinelab Ltd., a privately held company specialized in developing a dynamic stabilization system for the spine. Spinelab's Elaspine™ Implant System, a pedicle-screw based posterior motion preservation system for the degenerative lumbar spine, uses Bionate® PCU, which is a proprietary DSM Biomedical polymer with optional built-in surface modification, designed for chronic implants and extensively used in orthopedic applications for its tough, load bearing qualities. The implant system also marks the first clinical use of a PCU-only posterior rod. With the use of this advanced technology, the viscoelastic material properties of the polymer rod allows the system to act comparably to a damper thus enhancing stability and reducing the effects of peak loads.

Bionate® PCU has been a key material used by Spinelab in their core product Elaspine™, which is designed to reduce pain for patients while still allowing limited range of motion in the spinal column. Introduced in 2009, Elaspine™ has experienced success with Spinelab customers, having most recently completed one-year performance assessment with its first patients.

"Continuing to evolve our relationship with DSM Biomedical puts us in a unique position to leverage the impressive track record of their suite of biomedical materials" said Thomas Zehnder, president and CEO, Spinelab. "We selected Bionate® PCU for its long and successful clinical track record. Working with a proven, unmatched implantable material for our spinal applications allows Spinelab to focus on delivering the desired biomechanics to ensure implant performance for our esteemed customers."
