Further re: FDA Update

01 August 2022

TruSpine Technologies plc, (AQSE: TSP) the medical device company focused on the development of its pioneering "screwless" spinal (vertebral) stabilisation systems, provides an update in relation to its FDA submission.

Further to the announcement of 1 July 2022, the Company confirms that the FDA 510k submission process is still ongoing.

The instrument sterilisation testing which was referenced in FDA 510k update on 28 April 2022 has been delayed due to supply chain issues with medical grade steel.  The US based supplier of the steel has confirmed it should be available by mid-August 2022, at which time the instruments will be manufactured and sent to the packaging plant to complete the outstanding FDA submission requirements for the 510k application process to be completed.


Ian Roberts, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"I am proud of the TruSpine team for their diligence and hard work in these final stages of the FDA process.  Whilst we acknowledge these delays are frustrating for shareholders this is highly technical and complex process which must adhere to the highest regulatory and testing regime in order to meet the FDA standards."    

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of the UK Market Abuse Regulation and the Directors of the Company are responsible for the release of this announcement.
