Results thus far obtained show that when correctly processed, homologous tissues are excellent material for implantation, maintaining their original haemodynamic, inductive, conductive, and elastic properties. All procedures regarding the preparation, manipulation and preservation of tissues are carried out in certified facilities in compliance with national regulatory guidelines.
All laboratory work is performed in an environment that meets the strict standards demanded for environmental air quality in order to minimise the risk of contamination. Laboratory air quality, defined in terms of the number of particles and microbial colonies it contains, is equivalent to Grade A of the European Guide to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). The efficiency of all procedures is validated and certified.
Entrance to the processing laboratory is strictly limited to specialized staff. All visitors must be accompanied. Anybody entering has to wear special clothing to minimise any possible contamination from outside and, of course, adequately safeguard laboratory technicians.
