Oxford Performance Materials and Biomet Microfixation Join Forces
Date:4/8/2013

South Windsor, CT (PRWEB) April 08, 2013

Oxford Performance Materials (OPM) and Biomet Microfixation (Biomet) have entered into an exclusive distribution agreement for OPM’s OsteoFab™ Patient Specific Cranial Device (OPSCD). Under the terms of the agreement, Biomet will have exclusive global distribution rights to the OPSCD and OsteoFab™ implants for craniomaxillofacial (CMF).

“Following the universally positive response from our initial clients, it is with great satisfaction that we announce this global strategic cooperation with Biomet,” said Scott DeFelice, President and CEO of OPM. “We concluded that Biomet was the best partner based upon their existing product mix, global market presence, exceptional focus on Patient-Specific solutions, and clear reputation as a technological leader within the cranial and orthopedic industries.” OPM and Biomet performed the first clinical application in the United States earlier this year.

OPM’s OsteoFab™ technology combines OXPEKK®-IG polymer (PEKK or polyetherketoneketone), a biocompatible material with properties like bone, with a unique additive manufacturing process to “3D print” products ranging from bespoke devices to patient-specific designs created directly from a CT or MRI scan. OXPEKK®-IG polymer has been used in implant devices for seven years and is supported by extensive biocompatibility and clinical data. OPM has recently completed a multimillion dollar capital project resulting in a state-of-the-art biomedical additive manufacturing facility located in South Windsor, CT.

“We have steadfastly held to our vision that if we could additively produce an implant designed directly from a patient’s MRI or CT in a biocompatible structural polymer, we would advance human health and well-being while respecting healthcare market realities,” said DeFelice. OPM began producing CMF implants as a contract manufacturer in late 2011 and received FDA cl
