GAINESVILLE, Fla., Sept. 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AmnioLife Corporation, a human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products developer, today announced it has successfully completed sterilization validation testing using electron beam sterilization technology on its human demineralized bone matrix (DBM) allograft product line, Oncor™, for both U.S. and international commercialization. The Company expects to launch this product line during the fourth quarter of 2015 through its surgical distribution partners.
The Oncor™ DBM product line will be available for use in orthopedic applications such as spinal fusion, joint replacement, and trauma surgeries.
