07 Jun TissueGen Wins MedTech Breakthrough Award

TissueGen’s ELUTE® Fiber Recognized with Medical Device Engineering Breakthrough Award

DALLAS, TX, June 7, 2017 – TissueGen® Inc., developer of ELUTE® fiber, a groundbreaking biodegradable fiber format for advanced drug delivery, nerve regeneration, and tissue engineering, today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “Medical Device Engineering Breakthrough” award from MedTech Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market today.

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories. This year’s program attracted more than 2,000 nominations from over 10 different countries throughout the world.

TissueGen’s patented process for manufacturing patented and commercially available ELUTE® fiber occurs at or below body temperature thereby preserving the biologic activity of incorporated biologics and pharmaceutical compounds. ELUTE fiber technology enables controlled sustained delivery of a broad range of sensitive biologics and pharmaceuticals directly at the topical application or implant site and may potentially orchestrate and improve the healing process.  ELUTE fiber enables tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications never before possible.

“We are pleased to recognize TissueGen for their outstanding display of engineering innovation in the development of ELUTE fiber,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “The competition among medical device and solution engineering award nominations was fierce, and TissueGen displayed a compelling and high-impact solution for a broad range of topical and implantable medical devices products. Congratulations to the TissueGen team on their well-deserved industry recognition.”

“ELUTE fiber has the potential to revolutionize a broad range of medical applications and we are honored by MedTech Breakthrough’s recognition of our team’s development of this innovative drug delivery technology” said Christopher Knowles, president and CEO of TissueGen.
