About Aperion Biologics, Inc.
Aperion Biologics, Inc., located in San Antonio, Texas, is a privately owned, clinical-stage medical device company addressing the need for alternatives to human-based grafts with animal-based tissue technology. Aperion developed and patented a technique to make animal tissues compatible for challenging human applications. The core platform technology utilizes the Company's proprietary Z-Process™, which removes the key carbohydrate antigens from animal tissues followed by a unique conversion process that both stabilizes and sterilizes the tissue without affecting its biomechanical or biological properties. This creates functioning scaffolds capable of remodeling into healthy tissue. Aperion's Z-Process™ is applicable to a variety of tissues used in orthopaedic, cardiovascular, plastic, dermatologic, general and other surgical specialties. The company's lead product for ligament reconstruction procedures, the Z-Lig ACLR Device, is currently in clinical investigation and not commercially approved for sale in the United States or other markets.
