The Tutoplast™ Tissue Sterilization Process is a chemical
sterilization methodology originally developed more than 40 years ago by
Tutogen Medical to sterilize and preserve tissue for implantation.
Membrane and soft tissue augmentation grafts, as well as bone implants,
sterilized through the Tutoplast Process are used in hernia repair,
dental and other procedures.
How does the Tutoplast™ Process work?
oxidative and alkaline (if indicated) treatment break down cell walls,
inactivate pathogens and remove bacteria. Solvent dehydration allows for
room temperature storage of tissue without damaging the native tissue
structure. Low dose gamma irradiation ensures minimum Sterility
Assurance Level (SAL) 10-6 of final packaged graft.
