Using a unique processing technology, Osteotech helped create a market for allograft tissue transplants by increasing availability and improving quality. Riding that technology, Osteotech has gone from providing services to developing products with a line of proprietary allograft tissue, expanding a market in which it remains the leader. While the tissue market is growing and attracting competition from large orthopedic companies, surgeons have been slow in coming around, concerned largely by safety issues similar to those facing blood products. And the specter of a biological solution hovers over the tissue transplant field. Yet, Osteotech remains confident it can continue to grow and fend off major competitors, while expanding internationally and adding spinal implants to the company's tissue products.
