What is it?
EpiFix®, by MiMedx® is a biomaterial containing 226 different growth factors, cytokines, and enzyme inhibitors, which help your body heal even the most stubborn wounds.
The allograft is produced by utilizing the Purion® Process. This process starts by taking amniotic tissue from a healthy, consenting mother, during a scheduled Caesarean Section. Mother, and child are never adversely effected by the process. The tissue is then separated by its layers, sterilized, and reassembled. The newly cleaned membrane is then dehydrated, and ready to be placed on a wound.
