NEW CASE STUDIES: SEE HOW AFFINITY® HELPED TO SUPPORT HEALING

Moving beyond
stalled wounds

Cell viability is important

Although all amniotic tissue products start from the same raw material, different preservation methods can impact the characteristics of the products considerably:

Dehydration and sterilization

Retain some growth factor content but alter the ECM structure and, in some products, devitalize the endogenous living cells1-4

Cryopreservation

Preserves growth factor/cytokine content and structural integrity; however, cryopreservation techniques may cause the loss of cell viability1-4

The next way forward

See the novel hypothermic storage method that keeps Affinity® fresh, or talk to an Organogenesis Tissue Regeneration Specialist about how Affinity can support an optimal wound healing environment for your patients.
