LifeCell Company Profile

19:45 EST 14th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

LifeCell Corporation was formed in 1986 to market a unique tissue preservation technology developed by Dr. Stephen Livesey, M.D., Ph.D. and his colleagues at the University of Texas. The cryopreservation technique that they perfected allowed them to freeze-dry biological tissues and cells without damaging their structural or biochemical integrity. Over the next several years, LifeCell’s team of scientists worked to broaden the applications of this technology to a variety of tissues, including dermis, blood vessels and nerves. The ultimate result was an acellular tissue matrix that resists infection and rejection, can be stored for long periods, and is as strong as synthetics while being far more pliable - enabling the human body to regenerate lost tissue in the same way that it naturally replaces damaged or inadequate tissue throughout life. LifeCell’s first clinical product, AlloDerm®, was brought to market in 1994. Used for a variety of applications, AlloDerm has improved the lives of tens of thousands of patients across the country by restoring the precious gift of natural healing. Today, LifeCell markets a line of products for specific applications, including: AlloDerm, for plastic reconstructive, general surgical, burn and periodontal procedures; Repliform®, for urogynecologic surgical procedures; GraftJacket®, for orthopedic surgical procedures; Cymetra®, a particulate form of AlloDerm suitable for injection; and AlloCraft™DBM, for bone grafting procedures. LifeCell markets AlloDerm for plastic reconstructive, general surgical and burn applications through its direct sales organization. The Company’s strategic sales and marketing partners include: Boston Scientific for Repliform, Wright Medical Group, Inc. for GraftJacket, Stryker Corporation for AlloCraft DBM and BioHorizons for periodontal applications of AlloDerm. Our core tissue preservation technology has multiplied the effectiveness of each donor gift; donated tissue is processed not only for use in our products, but also for use as a wound dressing at burn centers around the country. Additionally, our research and development efforts continue, delivering powerful and lifesaving new products for use in a wide range of surgical procedures. LifeCell is dedicated to harnessing the body’s natural healing powers to facilitate the repair and replacement of lost or damaged tissue. Through our technological innovations, we remain a leader in the field of regenerative medicine - with many more breakthroughs still to come.
