aap Implantate AG / aap submits CE marking application for its innovative
antibacterial silvercoating technology . Processed and transmitted by NASDAQ
OMX Corporate Solutions.The issuer is solely responsible for the content of
this announcement.
aap
Implantate AG (XETRA: AAQ.DE) announces that the design dossier for the
performance of a CE conformity assessment procedure for the antibacterial
silver coating technology developed by the company was recently submitted to
a notified body leading in the field of medical products. The conformity
assessment procedure will initially be undertaken for a silver-coated LOQTEQ®
plate. In case of a successful conformity assessment, the company plans to
extend the approval to further trauma products.

aap
Implantate AG's silver coating technology addresses infection prevention, which is one of the critical problems in surgery that haven't yet been resolved adequately. During a procedure medical implants can become colonized by bacteria from the surrounding area forming a biofilm thereafter which can cause serious infections later. Both antibiotics and the human immune system have only a very limited effect against biofilms. It is therefore desirable to combat the biofilm formation at an early stage. This is whereaap
Implantate AG's silver coating technology becomes effective by protecting the implants' surface against bacterial colonisation. As there are no considerable resistances against silver the coating also protects against the colonisation by the particular problematic multiresistant germs.
The unique selling propositions of the silver coating technology developed byaap
Implantate AG have been demonstrated in diverse trials and consist of the high coating stability as well as the good biocompatibility and effectiveness. It is furthermore a cost-efficient coating technology due to the relatively short coating time and the comparatively low capital investment for the required coating machines.
Overallaap
Implantate AG's silver coating technology has a wide range of applications as a platform technology and can in a next step be used inter alia in other areas such as cardiology and dentistry or for a variety of medical instruments.
By submitting the design dossier for the performance of a CE conformity assessment procedure for the silver coating technologyaap
Implantate AG makes important progress regarding its strategic objective to accelerate value-based innovations.
