Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Sanara MedTech Inc. (Sanara), a provider of surgical and chronic wound care products dedicated to improving patient outcomes, announced today the execution of an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement with Rochal Industries, LLC, to market, sell, distribute, and further develop two new impactful products: BIAKŌS™ Antimicrobial Barrier Film and No Sting Skin Protectant. Both products are FDA cleared and are expected to launch in the first quarter of 2020.
Ron Nixon, Sanara’s Executive Chairman and the Founder and Managing Partner of The Catalyst Group stated, “The execution of this licensing agreement is an important and exciting next step for the Sanara/Rochal partnership. These products are the second and third to be licensed to Sanara by Rochal. We expect a number of similar agreements to be executed in the future as Rochal introduces new products and technology. With this steady pipeline, Sanara will continue to bring innovative, disruptive medical devices to market fulfilling our mission of providing products that improve patient outcomes.”
BIAKŌS™ Antimicrobial Barrier Film is a first in-class, antimicrobial spray-on wound dressing that kills microbes while protecting the underlying tissue, helping to remediate damage and prevent further infection. This product can be used on macerated skin and wounds until they have healed after which a clinician could use the No Sting Skin Protectant to help prevent further tissue damage.
No Sting Skin Protectant is a unique, spray-on bandage designed to protect against incontinence-related dermatitis, colostomy-related dermatitis, and medical adhesive-related skin injuries. It is also applied over bony prominences to reduce friction related injuries and is ideally suited for use in skin-folds as it does not self-adhere and is non-tacky.
Shawn Bowman, Sanara’s Wound Care Division President emphasized the potential impact of these products by saying, “The wounds and infections these products are designed to remediate and prevent are truly debilitating and impact hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. each year. Sanara is proud to have the opportunity to bring these products to market. The Company has already received extremely positive feedback from medical providers. We look forward to getting these new and innovative products into the hands of clinicians to help them treat their patients.”
With our focus on improving patient outcomes through evidence-based healing solutions, Sanara MedTech Inc. markets and distributes wound and skincare products to physicians, hospitals, clinics, and all post-acute care settings.
