Organogenesis Acquires NanoMatrix

2/25/08

Canton, MA-based regenerative medicine firm Organogenesis announced today that it’s acquiring Baton Rouge’s NanoMatrix for an undisclosed sum. The Louisiana firm specializes in using a technique called electrospinning to build three-dimensional scaffolds on which new tissues can grow. Such technology fits neatly into Organogenesis’ business of producing biomaterials for surgery and engineered tissue products such as the skin replacement Apligraf.
