Organogenesis Highlights Latest Wound Care Research, Launches New Amniotic Wound Care Product Line and New PuraPly™ Antimicrobial Wound Matrix Small Size at SAWC Fall 2017

CANTON, Mass. ‐ October 20 – For the first time since the recent acquisition of NuTech Medical, Organogenesis Inc. will present its expanded advanced wound care product portfolio at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Fall (SAWC Fall) meeting held this week in Las Vegas.

The newly-integrated company, which now offers a portfolio of products for the advanced wound care and surgical and sports medicine markets, will highlight important research and promote updates to its portfolio during SAWC Fall.

Scientific presentations will feature some of the latest developments regarding the continuum of care in wound healing.

“Organogenesis is advancing the standard of care in every phase of the wound healing process,” said Gary S. Gillheeney, Sr., President and CEO of Organogenesis. “We’ve built a comprehensive regenerative medicine portfolio to address wounds of all sizes, helping clinicians to personalize solutions to meet the needs of individual wound care patients. We look forward to demonstrating this to the medical and scientific communities via educational programs and presentations that highlight these advances.”

Visitors to the Organogenesis exhibition booth (#321) and attendees of its educational presentations will have the opportunity for a first look at the expanded portfolio, including the newly available 1.6 cm disk size of PuraPly™ Antimicrobial, for biofilm-based wound management of smaller wounds; and Affinity® and NuShield®, two amniotic products recently acquired by Organogenesis. Affinity is the advanced wound care field’s only fresh amniotic membrane (not dehydrated; not frozen). As a more complete dehydrated allograft, NuShield is designed to protect and support healing, while providing an easy-to-use, off-the-shelf product available in multiple sizes. Organogenesis’ proprietary BioLoc™ process preserves the native amnion and chorion layers in NuShield, with the intermediate (spongy) layer intact.

The Company will also present the latest news and research updates for its flagship bioengineered, FDA-approved living cell-based products, Apligraf® and Dermagraft®.

With more than 1,700 attendees, SAWC Fall is one of the largest wound care meetings of the year and serves as the official meeting site of the Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC), the nation’s largest professional organization dedicated to inter-professional wound healing and tissue preservation.
