FDA clears Collagen Matrix Dental Membrane

Collagen Matrix, a provider of collagen- and mineral-based matrix engineering devices, has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its new Collagen Dental Membrane derived from porcine dermis indicated for use in oral surgical procedures involving guided tissue and bone regeneration.

The new Collagen Dental Membrane is a nonfriable, conformable, resorbable, membrane matrix consisting of purified type I and III collagen derived from porcine dermis, Collagen Matrix said.

Collagen Matrix founder and CEO Shu-Tung Li said that the introduction of porcine tissue to their technology coincides with the facility expansion of the company’s occurring this year and a space will be dedicated to the processing of porcine tissue.

“The possible clinical uses of this new material are broad and add yet another dimension to the breadth of collagen expertise in the company’s intellectual property and this is another platform on which we plan to build and innovate for future products in key areas of growth,” Li said.
