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

The proprietary process for NuShield preserves the native amnion and chorion with the spongy/intermediate layer intact1,8,9, requiring less manipulation than other dehydrated amnion allografts on the market. NuShield is optimized to provide enhanced healing potential2,5,6,8,10-13, as well as excellent strength, flexibility, and handling.

Clinical Data

Organogenesis has a culture of scientific advancement, a strong commitment to product innovation, and is dedicated to clinical research.
