NuShield consists of the complete amnion and chorion layers of the placental membrane.


The tissues in NuShield are collected from fully consented mothers undergoing scheduled caesarean section births of full-term healthy babies. Donors are tested for relevant communicable diseases by an FDA registered laboratory. NuShield is terminally sterilized using gamma irradiation.

Content about Processing
