PalinGen® XPlus Hydromembrane is a human allograft processed from healthy amniotic tissue exactly like our PalinGen® Hydromembrane but goes through an additional manufacturing step of being chemically cross-linked with glutaraldehyde. The cross-linking of the extracellular matrix fibers gives greater tensile strength, shape manipulation, and slower resorption in vivo. PalinGen® XPlus Hydromembrane is conveniently packaged in sterile saline, to encourage hydration and malleability. It is packaged with sterile, removable mesh on both sides, to ensure it maintains form throughout storage. The mesh is easily removed at the time of insertion.
Amniotic tissue and membrane are known to contain collagen substrates, growth factors and extracellular matrix proteins all recognized as part of the complex wound healing process. Amnio Technology products are derived exclusively from the amnion and are chorion-free. Key natural elements found in placental tissues:
