“As we continue to grow our portfolio of proprietary orthopedic surgery
products, innovative partnerships like this allow us to expand the reach
of our product marketing and distribution in a very rapid and efficient
way,” said Darryl Roberts, Ph.D., Executive Vice President and General
Manager, Musculoskeletal Products. “The GraftGun system is an optimal
device to deliver ViBone, enabling a next generation viable bone graft
to be easily delivered and used in challenging surgeries.”

This co-marketing agreement calls for Aziyo to provide its viable bone
matrix product, ViBone, to SurGenTec for use with the GraftGun System.
ViBone pre-filled cartridges will be marketed through the SurGenTec
distribution network.

Travis Greenhalgh, Founder and CEO of SurGenTec added, “Our Company is
focused on creating intuitive solutions to improve the quality of life
for patients. ViBone complements our GraftGun system by providing
surgeons and patients with a bone matrix product that is as close as
possible to the gold standard of autograft. This unique combination
offering of ViBone and GraftGun pre-filled cartridges will significantly
reduce time in the operating room.”

ViBone was launched in 2017 as a better option for bone repair
procedures. The advanced science and proprietary product processing was
designed for handling and clinical performance closer to that of
autograft. Similarly, SurGenTec’s patented GraftGun system was also
launched in 2017 with a focus on improving delivery of intraoperative
bone graft materials. Both products have been used in numerous
orthopedic procedures and continue to see strong market adoption.
