AmnioPlast 2TM is aseptically processed and dehydrated while preserving the structure of the placental membrane.
It is: -Designed to act as an ocular bandage for an array of Ocular Surface Disorders (OSDs)
- Also intended for use as a biological membrane patch graft applied to the ocular surface
following repair or reconstruction procedures
AmnioPlast 2TM allografts are derived from human amniotic tissue and it's appearance may vary
between donors. Variations in color (tan to light brown), opacity, and thickness in the membrane allograft are normal due to the nature of the tissue.
Layers: Amnion & Chorion
Thickness: Not less than 60 microns
Moisture Content: Not more than 15%
Transparency: Clear membrane (>70% clarity)
Total Protein: Not less than 200 μg/cm^2
Embossing: “LC”, “L” or “C” as a guide to support correct placement on the wound
AmnioPlast 2 is composed of:
Extracellular matrix (ECM) of the Human Amnion Chorion Membrane: Acts as a natural biocompatible scaffold and a biological barrier
AGNES Proprietary Processing Technology
Donated placental tissues go through the steps of
Donor Screening: Includes testing for presence of infectious agents
Tissue Washing & Dehydration: Microbial and red cell contaminants removed and tissue is air dried
Cutting & Packaging: Tissues are cut using lasers, placed inside multiple poly-foil peel pouches and
then in an outer carton
Sterilization: Terminally sterilized using gamma irradiation
Shapes and Sizes
AmnioPlast 2 is available in the form of a square-shaped allograft measuring
3 cm x 3 cm
The human amniotic membrane which natively plays the role of providing a protective
barrier for the fetus in the womb, essentially plays the same function in wound care management and works as an
ideal ocular wound cover. Here are some of its advantages
Immunologically privileged due to 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
Terminal sterilisation provides additional safety by ensuring that the product is free from microbial
Rigorous donor screening and selection protocols that meet or exceed industry standards
Screens for infectious agents like:
- HIV-1/2 antibody & HIV antigen
- Hepatitis B surface antigen
- Hepatitis B core antibody
- Hepatitis C antibody
- HTLV I & II antibody
- CMV IgG
- HIV-1 (NAT)
- HCV (NAT)
Storage and Shelf-life
Does not require refrigeration and can be stored in a clean and dry environment at ambient room
Shelf-life of 2 years
Ease of Use
Easy-to-apply and ready-to-use
Optimised sizes and specifications for different wound types
Easy to determine the orientation of membrane allografts (2 distinct sides: amnion and chorion
The amnion-chorion bilayered allografts like AmnioPlast 2 act as a biological barrier and is relatively
transparent for good cosmetic outcomes. Such allografts have been previously used in the following surgical
Supports Reconstruction & Repair
Conjunctival Fornix: Loose tissues connecting conjunctival membrane lining the inner eyelid and the
Symblepharon: An abnormal adhesion of the membrane covering the white of the eye and the inner eyelids
Pterygium: A membranous growth that starts on the white of the eye and can spread to the cornea
Large Corneal Perforations: A corneal anomaly resulting from injury to the corneal surface
Stevens Johnson Syndrome: A rare skin and mucous membrane disorder that results in ocular manifestations
Deep Corneal Ulcers: Inflammation caused by microbial invasion resulting in corneal epithelial defect
Ocular Surface Squamous Neoplasia: An ocular surface malignancy ranges from mild epithelial dysplasia to invasive squamous carcinoma.

Unpack the outer and inner cover carefully maintaining sterility
Check whether resizing is required or not. If resizing is needed - measure the pathologically defective area with the help of a caliper. Then considering double the amount of the defect, resize the Amniotic Membrane (AM) while it is in a dry state. Resizing is done with the help of corneo-scleral scissors
Post resizing, the AM is moistened with any sterile solution to help soften it. If resizing is not required, then the AM is directly put into the sterile solution
Glued or Sutured:
After managing the affected corneal ocular surface properly, the AM is placed over it and glued or sutured. Suturing is done with the help of 10-0 monofilament nylon or vicryl sutures (depending on situational requirement) or adhesion is done with the help of fibrin glue

Wish To Know More?
Any disorder in the cornea, conjunctiva, eyelids and lacrimal glands is known as an ocular surface disorder.
These include dry eye disease (DED), blepharitis and meibomian gland dysfunction (MDG), allergic eye diseases (AED), chemical and thermal burns, etc. (1).
Prior to donation, the donor’s medical and social history are screened for medical conditions or diseases that contraindicates its use for allogenic (non-self) purposes.
As per national and/or international accreditations adhered by LifeCell, donor blood samples taken at the time of collection are tested negative/non -reactive for relevant communicable and infectious disease agents like:
HIV-1/2 antibody & HIV antigen
Hepatitis B surface antigen
Hepatitis B core antibody
Hepatitis C antibody
HTLV I & II antibody
