Invitrx Amniotic Tissue
Invitra AT is a biological acellular product derived from human amnion. The amniotic tissue is comprised of an extracellular matrix that forms a natural scaffold. The amniotic tissue has a series of anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral properties as well as low immunogenicity.(1,2) This natural scaffold works as a physical barrier that can contain cells to an affected area by maintaining adhesion of cells.(3)
