COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. --(Business Wire)--
Synergy (News - Alert) Biomedical, LLC, a developer of novel biomaterial products,
announced today that it has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food

"We are very pleased to receive the expanded spine indication for

posterolateral spine. These defects may be surgically created osseous
defects or osseous defects created from traumatic injury to the bone.

with bone during the healing process.
BIOSPHERE PUTTY is Synergy's first bone graft product utilizing patented
bioactive glass spheres that have been shown to improve the bone healing
properties of bioactive glass. The product provides surgeons with a
moldable bone graft material that has the highest bioactive glass
