The distribution agreements will now allow Tissue Regenix to promote DermaPure in the following states: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Montana, New Mexico, Arizona, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, New Jersey, Delaware, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire.
Tissue Regenix established its American subsidiary, Tissue Regenix Wound Care Inc., in November 2012, as part of its commercialization strategy for its dCELL technology platform. In June this year the operation signed a processing agreement with Community Tissue Services, one of the largest tissue banks in North America. Through the agreement with CTS, Tissue Regenix’s dCELL technology is now being applied to produce DermaPure, for use with acute and chronic wounds. DermaPure works by taking human donor skin and removing the DNA and cells, using the dCELL process to leave a natural biological scaffold that can be placed in the wound to aid natural healing by attracting the patient’s own cells to the wound area.
