DermACELL AWM® Per Square Centimeter

DermACELL AWM® is a dermal matrix (human skin allograft) INTENDED USES: Used in the treatment of chronic non-healing wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers. CLAIMED FEATURES: It is a human acellular dermal matrix (hADM). It is decellularized using Matracell®, a proprietary and patented technology that removes ≥ 97% of donor DNA without compromising the desired biomechanical or biochemical properties of the graft, and allows for rapid cellular infiltration and re-vascularization. Ready to use out of the package and stored at room temperature, eliminating the need for refrigeration and rehydrating processes. As a final step, all Dermacell grafts are terminally sterilized - rendering the graft sterile to medical device-grade standards with a Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) of 10^6. OPTIONS: Per sqaure centimeter

Product Information

Application of Skin Substitutes (also known as Cellular and/or Tissue Based Products) to certain wounds may help these wounds heal faster than conventional dressings and conservative treatments. Usually skin substitutes are used if conventional treatment has been tried for at least 30 days and the wound has not healed as quickly as expected. Human skin allografts are a type of skin substitute. They are made of skin donated by human donors that have had intact cells removed or treated to avoid immunologic rejection (a process in which the body of the person receiving the skin substitute kills the cells of the skin substitute).
