About the amnion
The amniotic membrane (AM) is the tissue surrounding the foetus in utero consisting of epithelium and stroma. AM can be easily extracted and preserved. Immunotolerance, promotion of epithelialisation, anti-inflammatory, anti-angiogenic, anti-fibroblastic and antimicrobial properties conferred characteristics of AM cells. The snap freezing of fresh samples during the production of AC+ preserves the desirable characteristics of the AM cells as compared to freeze dried sample collection methods. The AM is obtained from donors during planned Caesarean section. Consent is obtained from each donor after comprehensive donor evaluation and infection diagnostic analysis has been completed. The donated AM is processed in clean room conditions and subjected to extensive quality controls, including microbiological examinations.
