BBA Carousel Collage Complete - HQ.jpg

The options for surgical musculoskeletal repair continue to expand and a growing number of surgeons around the world continue to choose bone and soft tissue allografts as a safe, effective and convenient surgical option that yields unparalleled results for patients. CytoVive® is proud to offer Bone Bank Allografts industry leading allograft procurement and processing to our esteem clients and their valued patients.

Proprietary Allograft Processing 

Bone Bank Allograft's proprietary GraftCleanse® tissue cleansing method includes both chemical and physical tissue cleaning procedures to reduce the bone marrow and lipid element associated with normal human tissue. Processing includes closely controlled exposure to freeze/thaw cycles for superior tissue preservation. Allograft tissues are aseptically handled and sterilized under a scientifically validated sterilization method used to maintain a Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) of 10   in accordance with ISO 11137. This Validated process is designed to to protect the biomechanical properties of each allograft and reduce the risk of bacterial disease transmission.
