The Pioneer of Ophthalmology
TissueTech’s initial research and development efforts were focused on the development of its cornerstone cryopreservation technology – CryoTek. The CryoTek process is a proprietary tissue-processing method that preserves the innate biological and structural integrity of the natural placental. CryoTek-processed tissues are also the only available placental allografts that have been shown to be equivalent to fresh placental tissue and superior to other available placental allografts that are provided in a dehydrated state.
PROKERA® is a self-retaining biologic corneal bandage containing CryoTek amniotic membrane tissue. It is comprised of a cryopreserved amniotic membrane graft fastened to an ophthalmic conformer. An amniotic membrane product which is applied to the surface of the eye to cover or offer protection from the surrounding environment in ocular repair and reconstruction procedures. PROKERA ® is easy-to-use and can be inserted in the office by a trained eye care professional.
AmnioGraft® is an amniotic membrane product applied to the surface of the eye to cover or offer protection from the surrounding environment in ocular repair and reconstruction procedures. This is homologous use because serving as a covering and offering protection from the surrounding environment are basic functions of amniotic membrane.
