- Obtaining the CE certification under Medical Device Regulation reinforces Regen Lab’s positioning as a leading innovator of medical devices in the field of autologous tissue engineering therapies
- This regulatory achievement highlights Regen Lab’s patented technologies which are available in over 90 countries and have been used to treat patients in various therapeutic areas (musculoskeletal, dermo-esthetics, wound care and urogenital) leading to the publication of over 200 clinical studies
LE MONT-SUR LAUSANNE, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Regen Lab, a global commercial-stage medical technology company specializing in the research, development, registration, manufacturing and commercialization of proprietary tissue engineering products announces that its best-in-class medical devices REGENKIT®, CELLULAR MATRIX fig® and Arthrovisc® have obtained the CE certification under the EU Regulation 2017/745 on Medical Devices (MDR).
REGENKIT® is a preparation of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), CELLULAR MATRIX fig®, a combination of PRP and Hyaluronic Acid (HA), and Arthrovisc®, HA filled syringes.
Based on the examination of its Quality Management System and Technical Documentation, these new CE certificates delivered to Regen Lab SA (EU authorized representative Regen Lab France SAS) by the notified body BSI are all valid for five years with a starting validity date on April 25, 2023, and an expiry date on April 24, 2028.
Imposed on all manufacturers and distributors operating in the European Union, the EU MDR 2017/745, applicable since May 26, 2021, in the European Union, is meant to mandatorily replace by 2028 the existing European Medical Device Directives (MDD 93/42/EEC). These EU regulations on medical devices aim at establishing a modern and more robust regulatory framework to protect public health and patient safety. This certification has considerably increased the amount of technical and clinical validation data required on medical devices across the EU, to address the need for a better traceability and transparency in safety.
In relation to the EU MDR certification of its products, Regen Lab successfully renewed its ISO13485:2016 and MDSAP certifications with a Quality Assurance System meeting the requirements of the European MDR EU 2017/745 Regulation in December 2022.
The certifications obtained reinforces Regenlab’s competitive position in the PRP market alone and in combination with HA.
Regen Lab autologous tissue engineering solutions are based on an extemporaneous preparation of PRP from the patient’s own blood and combined therapy (PRP combined with HA).
Regen Lab is a vertically integrated group with extensive R&D, regulatory and manufacturing expertise. To date, Regen Lab’s patented technologies* are available in over 90 countries worldwide and have been used to treat patients in various therapeutic areas (musculoskeletal, dermo-esthetics, wound care and urogenital) leading to the publication of over 200 clinical studies projects. The Company’s products are manufactured in the Group factories in Le Mont sur Lausanne (Switzerland), Brooklyn (New York, USA) since 2022, and in Les Ulis (Paris region, France) starting from Q3 of 2023.
