Date:4/2/2012

PITTSBURGH, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cohera Medical, a leading innovator and developer of absorbable surgical adhesives and sealants, announced today that its lead product, TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive, is a finalist for the 2012 Medical Design Excellence Awards in the General Hospital Devices and Therapeutic Products category.
