Collagen Matrix said today that it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its line of OssiMend Bioactive Moldable bone graft matrix products, intended for use in spinal procedures.

The Oakland, N.J.-based company said that the newly cleared OssiMend product is composed of anorganic carbonate apatite bone mineral, 45S5 bioactive glass and highly purified Type I collagen, and that it can be molded into putty for filling irregular defect sites.

The moldable Ossimend product is designed to be slowly resorbed and replaced by new bone tissue, and comes in various sizes, Collagen Matrix said.

“We continue to expand our product portfolio for the Spine market with the development of this unique line of Bioactive bone graft matrices that combines a carefully-selected ratio of three powerful components. This innovative moldable version offers surgeons options for better ensuring predictable outcomes,” CEO Bart Doedens said in a press release.
