AmchoPlast is a dry, thick and multi-layer tissue that is not only semipermeable but also bio-absorbable:
Layers:Amnion, Chorion, Basement Membrane & Trophoblast
Thickness: Not less than 60 microns
Moisture Content: Not more than 15%
Embossing: “LC” as a guide to support correct placement on the wound
Donated placental tissues go through the steps of
Donor Screening: Includes testing for presence of infectious agents
Tissue Washing: Cocktail of antibiotics & media used to remove microbial and red cell contaminants
Dehydration: Under controlled conditions by dry air
Cutting:Using lasers to obtain precisely tissue of the right size
Sterilization: Terminally sterilized using gamma irradiation
Packaging and Storage: Placed inside multiple poly-foil peel pouches and an outer mono carton box and stored
Testing and release:Products shall be tested as per specification for release.
To ensure limited or no wastages AmchoPlast is available in different shapes (Square or rectangle) with 0.5 to 5 mm pore sizes to suit patient requirements. The pore size used depends on the size of the wound and the amount of exudate (the fluid formed in the wounds).
Has very low levels of HLA antigens and no immune rejection, and therefore can safely be used as an allograft without requiring tissue matching between donor and patient
Certified to be free from microbial and viral contaminants
Does not require refrigeration and can be stored in a clean and dry environment at ambient room temperature.
Under appropriate conditions the product has an expiry date of greater than 2 years
Can be used along with other wound treatment protocols such as negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO)
Can be placed under an external dressing
Does not require refrigeration or thawing and can be directly applied to the prepared wound bed
Being several times thicker than other single or bilayer allografts it does not easily fold into itself when applying, whilst also offering enhanced barrier protection
Contains various regulatory components in the allograft that support and aid in wound healing.
Diabetic foot ulcers
Soft tissue reconstruction
First and second degree burns
Chronic, non-healing diabetic foot ulcer healed at 10 weeks following 11 application of AmchoPlast
Non-healing neuropathic ulcer healed at 3 weeks following 4 application of AmchoPlast
Non-healing venous ulcer healed at 6 weeks following 7 application of AmchoPlast
Non-healing traumatic wound healed at 5 weeks following 6 application of AmchoPlast
Chronic, non-healing diabetic foot ulcer healed at 7 weeks following 8 application of AmchoPlast
Wound bed preparation:
Clean the wound with normal saline solution and perform sharp debridement with a sterile instrument (if slough is present).
Choosing the right size:
Measure the wound and choose appropriately sized AmchoPlast allograft.
Use sterile forceps to take out AmchoPlast from the inner foil pouch to avoid contamination.
Ensuring proper orientation:
To ensure appropriate orientation, check whether the embossed letters “LC” are displayed correctly when read from left to right.
Applying the membrane and hydration:
Apply AmchoPlast on the wound gently with sterile forceps and spread out the membrane to maximise the contact with the wound bed. Add a few drops of normal saline to hydrate the membrane.
External wound dressing:
A sterile non-adherent absorbent secondary dressing must be placed on top of the allograft to control bleeding and prevent contamination and secured with a bandage.
AmchoPlast can be applied on a biweekly basis until the wound heals (Dressing to be changed every 48 hours).
Produced using LifeCell’s proprietary AGNES processing technology, to provide an effective allograft with excellent handling characteristics
Licenced & Accredited:
First Tissue Bank outside the US to be accredited with AATB for placental tissues, and licenced by NOTTO (National Organ and Tissue Transplantion Organization) Licensed by DCGI, and also accredited with agencies such as from CAP, NABL, ISO, WHO, & GMP
Designed and developed by strictly adhering to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) & Good Tissue Practices (GTP) protocols

No, it is for single use only.
No, it is for single patient use only.
AmchoPlast can be stored in a clean, dry environment at ambient room temperature. There is no need for refrigeration or freezing.
No, AmchoPlast does not contain any live cells.
Yes. Watch this video to learn more.
Yes, AmchoPlast can also be used as an adjunct with other wound care therapies including VAC & NPWT.
Yes, AmchoPlast can be used for both chronic and acute wounds.
Proprietary processing and validated sterilization methods are employed to eliminate potential deleterious components of the allograft. However, with biological implants, the possibility of rejection still exists.
Possible significant adverse events may include microbial infection and transmission of viral disease. In addition, AmchoPlast should be used with caution in patients with a known intolerance towards Ofloxacin, Vancomycin, and Amphotericin B antibiotics.
