SINTX Technologies Ships New FleX SN Porous and Laser-textured Spinal Implants
SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SINTX Technologies, Inc. (www.sintx.com) (NASDAQ: SINT) (“SINTX” or the “Company”), an original equipment manufacturer of advanced ceramics, announced today that it has shipped production quantities of a new porous, laser-textured monolithic silicon nitride implant made of FleX SN (sintx.com/materials/flex) to be used in surgical spinal solutions. The shipment is the result of a successful collaboration with CTL Amedica to design and manufacture the new implants.
SINTX started shipping the new product in September 2021 to support an upcoming product launch which is expected in Q4. The porous structure and laser texturing of the implants is intended to enhance the existing osseointegrative properties of SINTX silicon nitride while still retaining the material’s antibacterial properties.
“We are proud to collaborate with CTL Amedica in producing these new implants, which we expect to result in improved patient outcomes from spine fusion surgery,” said Dr. Sonny Bal, President, and CEO, SINTX Technologies. “Our collaboration, combined with the recently awarded Phase 1 grant from the NIH, is enabling SINTX to progress quickly in the development of a new generation of spinal implants, which is extremely exciting.”
Additionally, SINTX shared that it has submitted a provisional patent application for improved methods of manufacturing silicon nitride materials including osteogenic implants with increased surface roughness and porosity. The patent application includes the technology CTL Amedica plans to use in its new implants.
SINTX continues ongoing investment in cutting-edge manufacturing technologies, the recruitment of a world class workforce, and best in class training to develop advanced materials for a variety of applications within the biomedical, industrial and antipathogenic fields.
