Biocomposites, an international medical devices company that engineers, manufactures and markets products for use in infection management in bone and soft tissue, recently announced that it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with NuVasive Specialized Orthopedics (NSO), a leader in orthopaedic technology innovation, to sell its STIMULAN® products in Germany.
NSO, a subsidiary of NuVasive, is focused on the design and innovation of revolutionary orthopaedic and traumatological solutions. Its market position in Germany makes them an ideal distributor to introduce surgeons to STIMULAN and the product’s ability to help improve patient outcomes.
Michael Harris, Chief Executive Officer of Biocomposites, said: “Germany is Europe’s largest orthopaedic reconstruction market and is an important element of Biocomposites’ international growth strategy. NSO, with their impressive track record of delivering innovative treatments to patients and strong surgeon relationships, are the ideal partner to distribute STIMULAN® to hospitals and surgeons treating infected and high-risk patients.”
Rob Martin, General Manager of NSO, said: “NSO is excited to be the exclusive distributor for Biocomposites in the German market. The addition of a unique product like STIMULAN helps further differentiate our specialized orthopaedics portfolio to help drive continued value for our surgeons, providers, and patients in the region.”
STIMULAN® is the only calcium matrix to receive a European CE mark approval for mixing with antibiotics: vancomycin, tobramycin and gentamicin for use in bone and soft tissue. It offers surgeons the flexibility to apply a broad spectrum of ‘off-the-shelf’ antibiotics at the site of infection, at concentration levels unachievable systemically – which lowers rates of reinfection, saves cost and improves patient outcomes.
STIMULAN® is used in over 50,000 cases every year and in thousands of hospitals around the world.
