Matrion is one of the first decellularized placental grafts to utilize all three layers of the placental membrane, including the trophoblast layer.
Processed with Matracell® decellularization technology, it is the first naturally intact, full-thickness, decellularized placental membrane.
- Handling: Matrion’s inclusion of the amnion, chorion and trophoblast layers results in a graft that is up to four times thicker than the Amniotic and Chorionic membranes.1
- Convenience: No need to rehydrate, thaw or otherwise prepare prior to application.
- Safety: Up to four times thicker than traditional bilayer grafts, Matrion provides a more substantial barrier, preventing fluid loss as well as bacterial ingress.2
- Sterility: Sterilized to a Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) of 10-6, medical device grade sterility.3
- Growth Factor Retention: Matrion retains more endogenous growth factors than other placental membranes that lack the full trophoblast layer.4 Analyses have demonstrated that the trophoblast layer accounts for more than 50% of the total amount of key biological factors in placental tissue.5
As a barrier membrane for chronic wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, pressure ulcers and dehisced surgical wounds.
