BIO MatrX Structure is a highly porous, synthetic bone graft substitute that sets hard upon implantation for a complete defect fill. The resulting osteoconductive scaffold provides interconnected porosity and high surface area to facilitate cell mediated remodeling and new bone growth.

BIO MatrX Generate is a combination of ETEX's osteoconductive nanocrystalline calcium phosphate and Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBM) which is tested for osteoinductive potential by lot, after sterilization, in an in vivo athymic nude rodent muscle pouch model. The viscous putty sets hard after closure providing an osteoconductive scaffold to facilitate new bone growth.

Both materials are FDA cleared to be hydrated with saline or blood; and are indicated as bone void fillers of the pelvis, extremities and the posterolateral spine.

Brian Ennis, President and CEO of ETEX Corporation, comments: "ETEX Corporation is highly selective and discriminating in securing strategic partners. Stryker's Spine division possesses the desired distribution and marketing capabilities to increase exposure for ETEX's existing products and emerging technologies. The dynamic expansion of our distribution network is a direct reflection of the increasing market interest in our rapidly expanding product portfolio. We are pleased that Stryker has selected ETEX as its partner to complement their product offerings in the orthobiologic market segment."
