As a specialised adjunctive therapy, AmnioRederm is designed to naturally stimulate the recovery of non-healing soft tissue wounds. It is made from human placental membrane, consisting of the amnion and chorion, which is a collagen rich structure. The placental membrane is mechanically separated from the placenta under aseptic conditions, before being enzymatically treated to remove epithelial cells from the membrane surface, therefore no living cells are exposed to the patient. The membrane is then cross-linked for extra strength. It has been shown to contain significant quantities of bioactive compounds and growth factors associated with the stimulation of wound healing. Further to this, the structure of the placental membrane itself acts as a natural cellular scaffold, allowing for cellular adhesion and mobility.
Dehydrated placental membrane provides natural healing properties to wounds with minimal inflammation and scarring.
It is specifically designed to enhance the recovery of soft tissue wounds, especially chronic non-healing wounds such as diabetic ulcers and lesions. AmnioRederm is a thin membrane applied directly to the wound.
Placental donations are collected during the birthing process in accordance the National Health Act of South Africa. All donors complete a health questionnaire and are screened for transmissible diseases. All AmnioRederm samples are tested during processing for bacterial and fungal contamination and to ensure sterility of the product.
The amniotic membrane is spread on a polyester net with the epithelial side orientated onto the net. The membrane is dehydrated, cut to size and packaged aseptically in an inner polyethylene pouch and sealed with an outer peel pouch. Dehydrated denuded human amniotic membrane is terminally sterilised by gamma-irradiation.
AmnioRederm can be stored in a clean dry setting at room temperature for up to 4 years from date of manufacture. No special storage is needed for this product.
AmnioRederm is dispatched in an unopened, original packaging.It should be stored at room temperature (10-28°C).Use within 4 years from the day of production (expiry date will be printed on each AmnioRederm product label).
