MEQUON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Titan Spine, a medical device surface technology company focused on the development of innovative spinal interbody fusion implants, announced today that it has acquired two patents related to its current and future surface modification techniques. The first patent protects the company’s existing manufacturing process that has been shown to produce superior bone-forming activity when compared to standard PEEK and titanium implant materials during in-vitro cellular studies and has been commercially available in the United States since 2006. The second patent protects Titan Spine’s next-generation surface technology that further refines its nano features, which the company expects to produce an even more robust osteogenic response.
