Aperion Biologics Corporation
We are a commercial-stage medical device company addressing the significant need for an alternative to human-based sources of tissues to be used in surgical procedures.
Our lead product, the Z-Lig®®, is produced by a patent-protected process for porcine tendons and its safety and performance was demonstrated in multicenter, prospective randomized trials in Europe and South Africa.
We received the CE Mark in 2014 (the regulatory permission to market the product in Europe) for use initially as a knee joint anterior cruciate ligament (“ACL”) replacement in revision and multiligament procedures, which allows us to distribute the Z-Lig® in any market which recognizes this approval.
We have been building the appropriate distribution channels, primarily establishing a network of distributors that have strong relationships with sports medicine doctors.
