LifeCell is a biotechnology company that develops and sells tissue grafts and become a leader in the field of regenerative medicine. In recent years, LifeCell's sales have grown at an average of 41% per year and profits up to 72% annually, due in part to rising sales of their human tissue product AlloDerm. In more recent years, sales have stabilized at 12% annually. AlloDerm is used during surgeries ranging from complex hernia repairs to breast reconstruction. Wikipedia.

Patent
LifeCell | Date: 2016-02-05

Methods and devices for treatment of tissues are provided. The methods can be used to interlock first and second components of the composition for protection of tissue or an organ. The devices can be used to treat a number of treatment sites, for example, to provide structural support to hiatal hernia repairs.


Patent
LifeCell | Date: 2016-02-02

Methods for dissecting tissues are provided. The methods comprise selecting a tissue site comprising dermis and subdermal fat connected to the dermis, and applying ultrasonic energy to the tissue to remove at least a portion of the subdermal fat from the dermis, wherein the ultrasonic energy is applied to minimize damage to the dermis.


Patent
LifeCell | Date: 2016-08-10

Devices and methods for removal of animal hair are provided. The devices and methods can include one or more rotating bodies that form pinch regions for mechanical removal of animal hair.


The present disclosure provides devices and methods for harvesting and processing tissue from patients for grafting. The devices can include a tissue collection chamber for ascetically collecting, processing, and/or re-implanting adipose tissue.


Improved breast prostheses, methods of making breast prostheses, and methods of treatment using such breast prostheses are described.


Patent
LifeCell | Date: 2016-12-14

Methods for processing tissue are provided. In some embodiments, the methods comprise methods for decellularizing tissue samples by applying high hydrostatic pressure to the tissues samples. In some embodiments, the methods comprise methods for thawing tissue samples and/or reducing the bioburden in a sample by applying high hydrostatic pressure to the tissue samples.


The present disclosure provides tissue products produced from extracellular tissue matrices. The tissue products can include acellular extracellular matrices that have been treated in select areas to increase the compressive modulus of the matrix in the selected area while maintaining the ability to support cell growth and tissue regeneration. In addition, the tissue products can include collagen-containing materials that support tissue ingrowth along with a framework of collagenous or polymeric materials such that the combination has a desired compressive or tensile modulus and/or strength while maintaining the ability to support cell growth and tissue regeneration.


Improved breast prostheses, methods of making breast prostheses, and methods of treatment using such breast prostheses are described.


Patent
LifeCell | Date: 2016-05-19

The present disclosure provides tissue products produced from adipose-containing tissues, as well as methods for producing such tissue products. The tissue products can comprise decellularized and partially de-fatted tissues. In addition, the present disclosure provides systems and methods for using such products.


Patent
LifeCell | Date: 2016-01-06

A method of producing a modified acellular tissue matrix (mATM) from an acellular tissue matrix (ATM), where the mATM has a reduced stretchiness relative to the ATM, without substantially compromising its associated structural or functional integrity. The method includes providing an acellular tissue matrix (ATM) and exposing the ATM to elastase for a period of time.
