Bacterin International Introduces OsteoSelect(R) DBM Putty
Date:3/10/2010

BELGRADE, Mont., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Bacterin International, Inc. (Bacterin), a biologic company focused on the development of innovative, specialty allografts, announces the introduction of OsteoSelect® DBM Putty for orthopedic bone grafting applications.  OsteoSelect® is a moldable allograft designed to withstand irrigation while exhibiting osteoinductive properties for improved bone regeneration.  OsteoSelect® will be an ideal complement to Bacterin's current product portfolio, which focuses on optimizing handling characteristics and biologic performance of grafting materials for surgeons.

"The development and release of Bacterin's first allograft based medical device represents another significant milestone in the evolution of Bacterin's Biologics Division," said Gregory Juda, PhD, Senior Biologics Scientist for Bacterin and product manager of OsteoSelect® DBM Putty.  Dr. Juda continued to say, "Bacterin used considerable input from the surgical community during the design of OsteoSelect® DBM Putty and thus far, the feedback from orthopedic end users has been overwhelmingly positive.  It was Bacterin's goal to bring to the market a bone graft substitute that offers the surgeon excellent handling properties and device level sterility without compromising the biologic performance of the material.  We have achieved that goal."

OsteoSelect® DBM Putty is a malleable bone grafting material comprised of demineralized bone matrix allograft suspended in a polymer carrier material.  The product was engineered using feedback from key surgeons in several orthopedic specialties, with a focus on providing solutions to the shortcomings noted with other commercially available DBM products.  The osteoinductive potential of every lot of terminally sterilized OsteoSelect® is evaluated in an animal model prior to release thus providing surgeons with a bone grafting solution that is both safe and biologically active.  Bacterin licensed the proprietary carrier technology from Osteotech Inc., and funding provided by a grant from the Montana Board of Research and Commercialization Technology was essential to the concept development and preclinical studies of the OsteoSelect® product.

OsteoSelect® DBM Putty will be commercially launched at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in New Orleans, Louisiana, March 10-12.

Bacterin develops innovative products designed to enhance surgical capabilities and improve patient outcomes. Bacterin Biologics is a recognized leader in biomaterial design and musculoskeletal reconstruction. Bacterin's proprietary biologic scaffolds include OsteoSponge®, OsteoWrap®,  OsteoLock®, and BacFast®.  Bacterin's Devices Division is committed to the development of bioactive coating technologies for medical devices.
