AmnioLife Files Collagen Membrane Preservation Patent

GAINESVILLE, Fla., Feb. 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AmnioLife Corporation, a human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products developer, today announced its plan to commercialize a minimally manipulated amniotic collagen matrix. The Company has filed its third patent application related to its non-oxidative drying technology that was designed to preserve the bioavailability of collagen matrix proteins.

AmnioLife secured its trade name for the product, ProLifix, with the USTPO while undergoing its research and development testing for the device it uses to carry out the preservation process in 2014. The Company has received favorable safety data from a CLIA certified lab indicating the sterility of the product. The product will be marketed as a soft tissue covering and extracellular matrix for a variety of surgical applications.

AmnioLife received ISO certifications in 2014 for multiple manufacturing environments that it is using to produce the product. The Company also initiated the implementation of a comprehensive GxP quality and manufacturing software solution that will allow for complete traceability and tracking of its implants in late-2014.
