ACell Vet, Inc. has released its newest product, the ACell Vet Corneal Disc, using extracellular matrix (ECM) technology. Formed from the lyophilized ACell Vet material, these discs serve as a three-dimensional matrix around which host cells populate and differentiate. During the process of tissue remodeling, the ACell Vet ECM is completely degraded and replaced by host-derived tissue, distinguishing the ACell Vet bioscaffold from permanently implantable material. Furthermore, during processing, the ACell Vet material is rendered free of all cells.Conveniently sized at 15 mm, the discs have an integral marker tab to help ensure the material is placed with the correct side up. The material may be secured with your preferred method; suturing directly to the cornea, with tack sutures to the bulbar conjunctiva, or by using a nictitating membrane flap. The ACell Vet Corneal Disc provides the veterinarian with a valuable new treatment option that is both cost effective and convenient, the manufacturer says.
