JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Tracking Solutions, Inc., developers of iTraycer, is pleased to welcome Vertera Spine to the company's client roster. Vertera Spine (www.verteraspine.com), headquartered in Atlanta, GA, is a medical device manufacturer of surgical solutions that address critical clinical needs in spine procedures. iTraycer is a comprehensive inventory management system that provides real-time tracking of medical devices and biologics – visible by part, lot, and serial numbers – from manufacturer to patient.
Vertera Spine is working to develop and commercialize a portfolio of surgical solutions that use or complement the company's patented porous surface technology. Vertera Spine's COHERE™ Cervical Interbody Fusion Device is the first porous all-polyetherether ketone (PEEK) interbody system for use in anterior cervical discectomy fusion procedures. The device mimics the physical properties of bone on the surface, while maintaining the mechanical properties of other traditional PEEK devices. Vertera Spine partners closely with respected institutions, including the Georgia Institute of Technology and Duke University, and received grant funding from the Georgia Research Alliance and the National Science Foundation.
"Our goal is to deliver cost-effective, multifunctional biomaterials to the next generation of spine therapies," said Chris Lee, Ph.D., co-founder and CEO of Vertera Spine. "As market demands shift, it is more important than ever to produce effective implant technologies at a better price. COHERE, featuring surface porous PEEK Scoria, will be the first in a new generation of biomedical implant innovations to meet this demand."
"MTS developed iTraycer to provide broad visibility and real-time information that improves efficiency, advances inventory control, increases operational effectiveness, and enhances financial accountability. We look forward to working with Vertera Spine to streamline operations as they bring exciting new solutions to market," said Stephen D. Bradley, Chief Executive Officer of MTS.
