KENNESAW, Ga., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MiMedx Group, Inc. (OTCBB: MDXG), an integrated developer, manufacturer and marketer of patent protected regenerative biomaterials and bioimplants processed from human amniotic membrane, announced today that it has received the certification for the Company's proprietary CollaFix™ Surgical Mesh CD.  This certification of CollaFix™ Surgical Mesh CD, which is a Class III product in Europe, was issued by the Company's notified body, AMTAC Certification Services, Limited, based in the United Kingdom.

This certification is the first for the Company's CollaFix™ platform technology.

Parker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO commented, "We are very pleased to receive our first regulatory certification for our unique CollaFix™ technology.  Our collagen fibers, that are the size of human hair, are fabricated in continuous lengths and have similar strength and stiffness to human tendons.  The fibers are bio-compatible and resorbable.  We expect this certification to be the first of many in a line of products using our CollaFix™ technologies to mimic the natural composition, structure and mechanical properties of musculoskeletal tissues in order to augment their repair."
