Cryopreserved burn care skin is normally reserved for larger burns. Working with our partners AlloSource we have found ways to help make the GOLD STANDARD in burn care more accessible, not just for larger burns but for use in smaller burns too. As one of the world’s largest providers of skin allografts, AlloSource are experts in this field, processing up to 1,000,000 cm2 a month and leading the way in cellular and tissue therapies.
1. Quality and consistency
We go to great lengths to ensure that every donation is maximised and suitable for use. Specialist staff who have years of experience in skin recovery, work hard to ensure every graft you use is suitable and of the right standard. Every allograft provided to you is accurately sized and shaped to make sure it is ideal for use.
Calculating the amount of tissue you need is very straight forward and convenient. AlloSource work with a specific criteria for assessing size, shape and thickness which ensures the quality of our Allografts is superior.

2. Time saving
When it comes to using cryopreserved skin there are two factors that take considerable time: thawing and meshing. We offer solutions to eliminate wasted time.
AlloSource’s tissue processing and packaging allows for a quick thaw time. Each graft is generally ready to use within a few minutes of starting the thawing process, you won’t need to do anything different with your usual practice except for finding something else to do!
When using extensive amounts of cryopreserved skin meshing can be very time consuming. We are able to offer you pre meshed skin in both 1:1 and 2:1 formats as standard.
Quick thaw times and pre meshed skin helps to make the gold standard in burn care much more accessible.
3. Accurate sizing
Every graft contains detailed measurements which are clearly marked on the packaging. Width, length and cm2 (total volume) are included to make life easy and of course to ensure you get the most from each graft, minimising wastage.
You are quickly able to identify and assess the number of packs needed depending on the TBSA.
