Centinel Spine to launch Ti-ACTIVE at NASS 2014


Centinel Spine will launch Ti-ACTIVE, a commercially-pure titanium coating, at the 2014 North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting in San Francisco, USA. Ti-ACTIVE is an osteoconductive, texturised, bioactive, titanium coating applied via a unique and proprietary application process delivering high-quality, reproducible, uniform thickness with controlled porosity. 

The texturised Ti-ACTIVE coating creates a three-dimensional osteoconductive environment that Centinel Spine says “delivers enhanced fixation, increased primary stabilisation and bony on-growth.” The bioactive surface also accelerates mesenchymal stem cell adhesion and proliferation providing a biological-friendly environment for bone formation.

After a successful alpha launch with positive feedback from surgeons, Centinel Spine is commercialising Ti-ACTIVE coating with STALIF C-Ti, providing spine surgeons with the first titanium-coated, No-Profile anterior cervical integrated interbody system on the market.

“Ti-ACTIVE represents our commitment to advancing the standard of care in spinal fusion procedures merging the established osteoconductive advantage of titanium with the elasticity and visualisation benefits of PEEK and the proven clinical success of STALIF technology,” says John Viscogliosi, chief executive officer and president of Centinel Spine.
