AmnioPlast 1™ is a sterile minimally processed, air-dried monolayered amnion allograft derived from the human amniotic tissue which is designed to act as a wound cover that aids in the healing process of Ocular Surface Disorders (OSDs).
AmnioPlast 1 allografts are intended for use as a biological ocular bandage or barrier following repair or reconstruction procedures in the treatment of ocular surface disorders. It is aseptically processed and dehydrated while preserving its various biological components and its native structure. It can be used both in an outpatient setting along with a soft bandage contact lens, as well as surgically
AmnioPlast 1 is a dry, thin and bio-absorbable wound cover derived from the amnion layer of the placental tissue
Layers: Amnion layer
Thickness: Not less than 20 microns
Tensile Strength: Not less than 0.25 N
Transparency: Clear membrane (>75% clarity)
Total Protein: Not less than 150 μg/cm^2
Moisture Content: Not more than 15%
Embossing: "LC" as a guide to support correct placement on the wound
AmnioPlast 1 is composed of:
Extracellular matrix (ECM) of the Human Amnion 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
Tissue removal: Chorion is removed
Re-Washing & Dehydration: Washed and air drie
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
To ensure limited or no wastages, AmnioPlast 1 is available in different shapes (square, rectangle and circle) and sizes. 3 cm x 3 cm, 1.5 cm diameter
Human Amnion allografts like AmnioPlast 1 act as biological barrier membranes and which are bioabsorbable. The allografts are relatively transparent for good cosmetic outcomes. They have been used in the following non-surgical and surgical applications
Just fill the form and we will get in touch with you.
Insertion of the lid speculum:
The lid speculum is inserted after anesthetising the patient. It is first inserted in the upper lid, followed by the lower lid
Hydration of the allograft:
The AM is moistened with any sterile solution to help soften it
Placement of AmnioPlast 1:
Ensure that the letters LC are displayed correctly from left to right before the placement of the allograft.
Lid speculum removal:
Remove the speculum from the lower lid followed by the upper lid gently while pulling away from the cornea and the lens
Unpack the outer and inner cover carefully maintaining sterility
Check whether resizing is required or not. If needed, measure the pathologically defective area with the help of a caliper. Then considering double the amount of the defect, resize the AmnioPlast 1 while it is in a dry state. Resizing is done with the help of corneoscleral 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
After managing the affected corneal ocular surface properly, AmnioPlast 1 is placed over it and glued with fibrin glue

Prior to donation, the donor’s medical and social history are screened for medical conditions or
diseases that would contraindicate the donation of tissues in accordance with current policies and
procedures approved by LifeCell. Donor blood samples taken at the time of collection are tested
negative/non -reactive for relevant communicable and infectious disease agents at LifeCell
International, which has requisite national and/or international accreditations.

No, each product is for single use only.
Each product is for single patient use only.
No, our products do not contain any live cells.
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
The products can be stored in a clean, dry environment at ambient room temperature. There is
no need for refrigeration or freezing.
Yes, application techniques differ for products. For further details, please refer to the Product
Depending on the severity of the condition and prescribed therapy or treatment, the number of
applications may vary.
Even though AmnioPlast 1 contains only the amnion layer, it has a tensile strength of not less than
0.25 N and hence does not tear easily.
Yes, the product can be used for both in-office and surgical applications
