CENTENNIAL, Colo., April 4, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AlloSource and Stryker today announced the launch of ProChondrix® CR, a cryopreserved osteochondral allograft. ProChondrix CR is a single-stage, natural solution for patients in need of articular cartilage repair.
ProChondrix CR is designed to match biomechanical and biochemical properties of normal hyaline cartilage, restore a smooth articular cartilage surface, help relieve patient symptoms, and improve function. AlloSource launched ProChondrix in 2016 and developed a cryopreserved version to provide a longer shelf-life, while maintaining the high cellular viability of the product1.
"ProChondrix CR demonstrates our commitment to innovation and our surgeon customers," said Kerr Holbrook, AlloSource Chief Commercial Officer. "This cryopreserved allograft provides opportunities for more surgeons to use ProChondrix CR to help restore patient health.
