Wound Healing Properties

Amniotic membrane contains a complex mix of wound healing components including growth factors, cytokines, amino acids, carbohydrates, hyaluronic acid, and extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins that are known to aid in the healing and repair of wounds.

Chorion-free

Unlike other amniotic tissue allografts on the market, Evologics amnion allografts do not contain chorion, which reduces the risk of an adverse reaction in the patient.

How is Amnion Sourced?

The amniotic membrane tissue process involves the recovery of the amniotic membrane that surrounds the baby during planned, full-term Caesarean sections. Amnion is taken only from healthy, pre-screened, consenting mothers who have been tested for infectious diseases, and undergone comprehensive testing, including behavioral risk assessment, physical assessment and communicable diseases. Evologics amnion allografts are acquired and processed in the United States adhering to American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules, regulations and standards.

What is Amnion?

Evologics amnion patches and fluid contain natural growth factors, and is used by many physicians to treat patients with hard and soft tissue injuries, to decrease inflammation, to help repair and alleviate pain caused by joint injuries, to reduce scarring, and to facilitate healing.
