What is AMNIOFIX?
AMNIOFIX® is a tissue allograft composed of dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane (DHACM). It is available in sheet, fenestrated, and wrap configurations in a variety of sizes to reduce wastage.
AMNIOFIX Product Benefits
AMNIOFIX provides a protective barrier that supports the healing cascade and protects the wound bed to aid in the development of granulation tissue in acute and chronic closures.
AMNIOFIX provides a biocompatible human extracellular matrix and contains 300+ regulatory proteins.1-3
- Multiple configurations available for varying demands depending on wound or surgical application desired
- Provides a human biocompatible extracellular matrix
- Simple storage and application
- Compatible with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)
Clinical Use Examples
AMNIOFIX has been used across a wide range of surgical applications including:
- Surgical wounds
- Dehiscence repair
- Tendon & ligament repair
- Rotator cuff repair

Making a Difference
AMNIOFIX Processing & Details
AMNIOFIX is processed using PURION, a unique patented method for placental-based allografts that is in accordance with the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) standards. The product is derived from placental tissue donated by healthy, consenting mothers who have given live Caesarean section birth in the US.
MIMEDX’s patented PURION process preserves extracellular matrix components, including regulatory factors and other matrix-associated proteins. For an additional level of safety, the product is terminally sterilized.
