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. Amniox utilizes its proprietary CryoTek® process, a cryopreservation technology, to preserve the biological and structural integrity of the native tissue which published studies have demonstrated preserves the HC-HA/PTX3 matrix that is key to the regenerative process.
