Where Does the Tissue Come From?
Our products come from a planned Cesarean Section (C-Section). The allograph tissue is derived from the amniotic membrane and fluid. Placental tissues are collected at several facilities around the country, following strict guidelines and consistent with industry best practices.
Donors are healthy women between the ages of 18-35 years. A careful medical and social history is collected in advance to ensure mothers meet all eligibility requirements . Donors are thoroughly screened for communicable diseases.
At the time of the C-Section delivery, the baby is delivered and the placenta and fluid, which are typically discarded, are saved. All tissues are the tested to ensure viability and safety.
Tissues are processed to the highest standards in a state-of-the-artAmerican Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) accredited facility and allographs are subjected to stringent USP testing prior to release.
