LifeCell develops and markets tissue repair products for use in reconstructive,
urogynecologic and orthopedic surgical procedures. LifeCell's leading technologies include: Strattice™, for reconstructive and general surgical procedures; and AlloDerm®, for plastic reconstructive, general surgical, burn and periodontal procedures and Cymetra®, a particle form of AlloDerm suitable for injection.
LifeCell's patented tissue matrix was developed in 1994 as a graft for burn patients. Since then, AlloDerm's versatility has led to its use in many other reconstructive applications, allowing surgeons to restore tissue damaged through injury or disease - using the regenerative power of the patients' own tissues.
