Amniotic membrane is a semi-transparent and resilient membrane that lines the upper cavity of the placenta
Amniotic tissue acts as an immune-privileged protective barrier during fetal development1
Amnio-Maxx is applied as an anatomical barrier that helps provide mechanical protection while retaining endogenous growth factors1,2,4
The Amnio-Maxx proprietary process preserves the natural properties of amniotic tissue, maintaining inherent levels of key extracellular matrix molecules, including proteins, carbohydrates, growth factors, and cytokines5
Proper orientation for Amnio-Maxx is achieved when the epithelial layer is facing upwards and the stromal layer is facing downwards, as indicated by:
1. a triangular notch positioned in the upper left hand corner of the allograft (as shown below)
2. An orientation indicator sticker located on the inner pouch facing upwards.
