AmnioGraft® Handling

How to Remove
AmnioGraft® From the Paper

The Company’s unique cryopreservation method retains the tissue’s natural tensile strength, which makes this naturally strong tissue easy to handle and suture.

AmnioGraft® is supplied in an easy to use dual peel pouch. Use sterile smooth forceps or gloves to remove the inner pouch containing the tissue. The clear inner pouch may be introduced to the sterile field. Using sterile scissors, cut below the sealed line of the inner pouch and remove AmnioGraft® using smooth sterile forceps. Once retrieved from the sterile, clear inner pouch, AmnioGraft® can be easily removed from its carrier paper using a dry surgical sponge or 0.12 forceps.

The tissue is ready for transplantation immediately after removing it from the carrier paper without the need for rehydration. 

AmnioGraft® is always manufactured with the stromal side of the tissue attached to the carrier paper. It is easy to determine the orientation of AmnioGraft® after it has been removed from its carrier paper using a dry surgical sponge. The dry sponge will stick to the stromal side, but it will not stick to the basement membrane side.
