Decellularised scaffolds for Tissue (Re-)engineering


Decellularised scaffolds have been developed in the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering to replace and regenerate damaged or diseased tissues in the body. Using our proprietary technology we take healthy animal or human donor tissues and process them to remove the cells. The removal of donor cells overcomes any issues of immune rejection. The process produces a natural extracellular matrix scaffold which can be implanted directly into patients and regenerate using their own cells. Such scaffolds are showing excellent clinical success in healing skin wounds and additional products are in various stages of development and commercialisation for cardiovascular and musculoskeletal applications.
