SINTX ANNOUNCES NEW ANTIBACTERIAL BIOMEDICAL PATENTS AND EXPANSION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PORTFOLIO
SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SINTX Technologies, Inc. (www.sintx.com) (NASDAQ: SINT) (“SINTX” or the “Company”), an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of advanced ceramic materials for medical and technical applications, announced today it has been awarded four new international patents for antibacterial biomedical implants.
Awarded by the countries of Canada, Australia (two patent awards), and Japan, these patents enhance SINTX’s portfolio of intellectual property. Silicon Nitride, one of the premium bioceramics offered by SINTX, has been shown previously to exhibit the bacteriostatic benefits sought after in medical implants. These patent awards and the protection they provide enable SINTX to offer even greater value to medical device partners operating within the protected geographies.
“At SINTX, we value our intellectual property, and these awards strengthen our IP portfolio,” said Dr. Ryan Bock, Vice President of Research and Development, SINTX Technologies. “The topic of antibacterial protection for medical implants is of interest across all surgical areas because bacteria and infection continue to represent some of the most significant issues within healthcare. SINTX has already received interest in our material from med-tech companies looking for a way to reduce bacteria issues associated with their implants.”
Evolving from a spine company, SINTX Technologies has expanded and diversified significantly through entering new markets and acquisition. The recent acquisition of Technology Assessment & Transfer (TA&T) expanded the Company’s product portfolio into other ceramic materials such as zirconia and alumina, both for medical and industrial applications. Today, SINTX is dedicated to the manufacturing, research, and development of advanced materials science-based solutions to improve quality of life.
