Amniox Medical is the first provider of a human tissue allograft composed of both umbilical cord and amniotic membrane. The biological components of these tissues have demonstrated regenerative properties that can provide healing benefits to patients with numerous medical conditions. In utero, wound healing occurs rapidly and with minimal scar, and this restorative ability is innate to placental tissues, including umbilical cord and amniotic membrane. Heavy chain hyaluronic acid/pentraxin-3 is the key protein complex present in these tissues to orchestrate the healing process. Amniox utilizes its proprietary CryoTek™ process, a cryopreservation technology, to preserve the biological and structural integrity of the native tissue. Published studies have demonstrated that the CryoTek process more effectively preserves the structural and biological integrity of the tissue.
