What to Look for When Choosing an Allograft or Bio-Implant Provider

Searching for an alternative tissue source? Be sure to address the following 12 questions to make an educated decision.

Is the provider accredited by the AATB (American Association of Tissue Banks)? If so, request documentation. In a global economy, certification that is recognized worldwide is becoming a necessity. Click here to view LifeNet Health's summary of accreditations/certifications.

Are the musculoskeletal tissue allograft bio-implants sterile to an SAL of 10-6, as expected for a medical implant?

Is the provider's sterilization process validated?

Does the provider have data indicating inactivation of viruses using the process?

Does the provider have a return policy?

Are all of the delivery devices for allograft bio-implants safe to come in contact with breached skin?

Does your provider avoid the use of harsh solvents such as acetone in tissue processing?

Are any of the allograft bio-implants irradiated prior to final packaging?

Does the provider have an option to obtain implants at room temperature and fully hydrated, requiring minimal rinse time?

If the provider offers demineralized bone carriers, is the osteoinductivity tested in-process (prior to either mixing with carrier, or final packaging, or terminal sterilization) or is it tested after final packaging and sterilization and in its final state?

Is the provider also a tissue recovery agency?

Does the provider offer cardiovascular as well as musculoskeletal tissues?
