Collagen Matrix Acquires Sunstar’s Degradable Solutions Division

December 29, 2020

Collagen Matrix, Inc., a global leader in regenerative, collagen-based, xenograft-derived medical devices, and portfolio company of Linden Capital Partners (“Linden”), announced today the acquisition of Sunstar’s Degradable Solutions division (the “Company”), including its GUIDOR® branded line of resorbable synthetic medical implants.

Founded in 1999, Degradable Solutions AG, is headquartered in Schlieren, Switzerland, and has been part of the Sunstar Group since 2011. The Company develops and markets a high performing, synthetic portfolio of tissue regeneration products. Its GUIDOR® family of bone graft substitutes, known as “easy-graft” and “calc-i-oss,” as well as the GUIDOR® bioresorbable matrix barrier membrane, are distributed globally for use in dental surgical and restoration procedures.

Following the transaction, Shawn McCarthy, CEO of Collagen Matrix, stated “GUIDOR’s synthetic technologies complement our proprietary, collagen-based products, enabling us to offer a comprehensive portfolio of regenerative medicine products to both our OEM customers as well as our global Contract Development customers. We are committed to bringing meaningful innovation to life, and this investment expands our capabilities to develop and deliver combination products that appeal to an ever-broadening array of clinical applications in dental markets and beyond.”

Degradable Solutions AG has also developed novel electrospinning capabilities, leading to a first-of-a-kind non-woven, synthetic, electrospun dental membrane, which recently received a CE mark. Collagen Matrix expects to launch this product into select markets beginning in 2021 and initiate the development of additional product solutions for new areas of unmet medical need.

Linden Principal and Board Member of Collagen Matrix, Joshua Reilly, added “the GUIDOR® brand is well known and highly regarded worldwide, and we are excited to add their innovative product line to Collagen Matrix. This transaction strengthens our growing dental membrane and bone graft substitute business and builds upon our strategy to expand the range of technologies that we can offer to customers.”
