EPIEFFECT Product Overview
Making a Difference
EPIEFFECT Processing & Details
EPIEFFECT 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 PURION patented process preserves extracellular matrix components, including regulatory factors and other matrix-associated proteins. For an additional level of safety, the product is terminally sterilized.
The PURION process has been optimized for retention of the Intermediate Layer (IL). Separation of the amnion and chorion, with attached IL (Figure 1), ensures thorough cleansing of each layer prior to lamination into the tri-layer final configuration (Figure 2).
