Flowable tissue allografts derived from human amniotic fluid

Two configurations available

  • Cryopreserved (Amnio- Maxx®)
  • Ambient temperature (Amnio-Maxx®RT)

Amniotic fluid is a versatile, powerful tissue which supports the development of the fetus in utero. The properties of amniotic fluid which benefit the fetus also make it an ideal material for covering wounds,1-3,6 and contributing to an environment conducive to the regeneration of healthy tissue.4-6

Allogenic human birth tissues, including amniotic fluid, can be utilized in a variety of surgical and clinical settings.

Published literature shows that amniotic fluid contains important growth factors,1,2,5 extracellular matrix2,5 molecules, hyaluronic acid,1,4,5 fibronectin,2 laminin,4 prostaglandins,3 and cells.6

Benefits of amniotic fluid may include:

  • A safe, natural covering for wounds1-6
  • Decreased inflammation3
  • Reduced fibroses, scarring, and adhesion at the surgical site4

Intended for topical application as a covering over wounds or areas of localized inflammation.

Birth tissues are recovered during planned cesarean sections and processed aseptically in a manner to preserve it’s inherent properties.

Handling & Storage Guidelines:
  • Store at -70°C or colder. Thaw only prior to use.
  • Allow product to thaw by standing at room temperature and apply directly to the wound or area of inflammation
  • See instructions for use for more details
