12 Aug AlloSource Launches AlloMend Ultra-Thick Acellular Dermal Matrix
New allograft is the thickest in the AlloMend product line to support demanding soft tissue applications
CENTENNIAL, Colo., Aug. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — AlloSource®, one of the largest allograft providers in the U.S. creating innovative cellular and tissue products to help surgeons heal their patients, today announced the launch of AlloMend® Ultra-Thick Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM), the newest addition to the AlloMend product line.
AlloMend Ultra-Thick ADM is the company’s thickest dermal graft. Available in 3.0 to 4.0mm thickness, AlloMend Ultra-Thick ADM comes in multiple sizes and is created using innovative processing techniques to ensure each allograft’s thickness is consistent throughout the entire graft. The product was designed for use in the repair or replacement of damaged or inadequate tissue required in demanding procedures, such as superior capsule reconstruction (SCR). These types of procedures require high suture retention and ultimate tensile strength and AlloMend Ultra-Thick meets those requirements.1
“Our AlloMend line has been one of AlloSource’s cornerstone products for years and we are proud to build on that legacy with our thickest version to date,” said Ralph Diaz, AlloSource Vice President of Sales. “Our customers asked for a graft that could be used in more demanding soft tissue procedures and we believe AlloMend Ultra-Thick will meet that need.”
AlloMend Ultra-Thick ADM and the entire AlloMend product line is processed with AlloSource’s proprietary DermaTrue™ Decellularization Process to remove cellular debris (including DNA, RNA, proteins and antigens) rendering the tissue acellular. In addition, it is sterilized with e-beam technology to a sterility assurance level (SAL) of 10-6 to minimize infection risk, while avoiding damage to the allograft tissue.
