Tutoplast® Tissue Sterilisation
The Tutoplast process is a chemical sterilisation method to sterilise and preserve tissue for implantation. Membrane and soft tissue augmentation grafts, as well as bone particulate, sterilised through Tutoplast are used in dental, urological and other procedures.
During the Tutoplast process, osmotic, oxidative and alkaline (membrane tissue only) treatments break down cell walls, inactivate pathogens and remove bacteria. Solvent dehydration results in room temperature storage of tissue without damaging the collagen structure. Low dose gamma irradiation ensures sterility of final packaged product.
