dCELL® Process

dCELL® Process

The patented dCELL® Process can be used to manufacture both human donor and animal tissue devices to address real unmet clinical needs.

Why is dCELL® different?

  • The decellularised tissue retains the biomechanical properties of the original construct we don’t use chemicals to ‘fix’ the structure because our process preserves it this means your cells can repopulate it once it has been implanted in your body
  • Cells, DNA and the components of the tissue that could produce an immune response are removed from it during the process – i.e. all the things that would tell your body that this is foreign material.
  • We aim to decellularise ‘like for like’ i.e. a heart valve to replace a heart valve - we don’t try and make one material do jobs it wasn’t designed for.

When the scaffold is implanted into your body your own cells re-infiltrate it via natural healing process, over time it re-populates and becomes a living part of you.
