Native human-derived extracellular matrix (lyophilized/solution). The extracellular matrix (ECM) is the non-cellular component present within all tissues and organs that provides structural and biochemical support to surrounding cells. HumaMatrix is one of the first commercially available native, human-derived extracellular matrix products. Due to its human origin and minimal processing, HumaMatrix retains the native matrix proteins and growth factors found in healthy human tissue including collagen, elastin, laminin, glycosaminoglycans and many other matrix proteins. HumaMatrix is ideal for many applications including coating tissue culture surfaces to support cell attachment and growth or for making hydrogels, and is a perfect alternative to Matrigel. HumaMatrix is extracted from nutrient-rich human tissue sourced extrictly from American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) accredited and FDA registered tissue banks and organ procurement organizations (OPOs). All Humabiologic’s biomaterials are obtained from tissue partners who comply with requirements for transplantable human tissues under 21 CFR 1271 of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
