RTI Biologics, Inc. (RTIX) Launches New Biologic Implant, BioReady™ DBM Putty

|Includes: RTI Surgical, Inc. (RTIX)

RTI Biologics, a processor of orthopedic, dental, surgical specialties, and other biologic implants, today announced the launch of an innovative, new biologic implant for use in sports medicine, orthopedic, and pine surgeries. BioReady™ DBM Putty and Putty with Chips is an instant use, 100 percent allograft DBM product. BioReady DBM putty is included in RTI's DBM portfolio, which already features BioSet™ DBM Paste and BioAdapt™ Foam.

BioReady DBM Putty is a ready-to-use demineralized bone matrix (DBM) implant that provides convenience, robust handling, verified osteoinductive* potential, and sterility. It was introduced at the RTI Biologics exhibit at the North American Spine Society (NASS) annual meeting in Dallas this week.

BioReady DBM Putty and Putty with Chips are 100 percent allograft, and each donor lot is tested for osteoinductive potential. Data shows that BioReady DBM Putty retains its osteoinductive potential throughout its entire shelf life. This ready-to-use implant does not require any preparation, such as thawing or mixing, and it is available in various sizes for use as a bone void filler in many types of surgical procedures.

"BioReady is an exciting allograft solution that complements our portfolio of DBM implants including BioSet and BioAdapt," said Roger Rose, executive vice president and chief commercial officer for RTI Biologics. "This ready-to-use implant addresses a significant clinical need and ensures that we maximize every gift of donation received."

All of RTI's implants go through a sterilization process validated by tissue type. The sterilization process used for BioReady DBM Putty is known as the Cancelle™ SP Demineralization Process. It uses a mixture of oxidative treatments and acid or alcohol washes to remove cellular debris and deactivate pathogens. Subsequent cleansing rinses serve to remove residual chemicals, maintaining biocompatibility.
