CryoLife Inc. Company Profile

19:38 EDT 20th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

Founded in 1984, CryoLife was the first company to commercially develop the ultra-low temperature preservation of viable human heart valves for transplant. Since then, we have been engaged in an exciting transfer of technology which has led to the highly successful preservation of human saphenous and femoral veins as well as orthopaedic tissues such as tendons, menisci, and osteo-articular cartilage grafts. Today, the company holds thirteen exclusive cryopreservation patents, including the CryoSafe® triple pouch packaging system (patent #no. 5,031,762) designed to withstand ultra-cold temperatures and allow for aseptic introduction of the allograft into the sterile field.
Our laboratories and research facilities, located in suburban Atlanta, Georgia, have been designed to maximize the quality of our tissues and services. Tissue processing is conducted in a class 100 clean room environment by CryoLife technicians trained in microsurgical techniques. An in-house microbiology department performs extensive testing on each type of tissue for bacterial and fungal contamination. All donors are screened according to FDA regulations.

Our quality management system has been awarded the coveted ISO certification, an internationally recognized sign of quality assurance excellence. As a company, we are wholly committed to advancing the evolution of tissue preservation and engineering technology.
