Placental membranes

The power of placental membranes

Human placental tissue features a collagen-rich matrix, growth factors, cytokines and live endogenous cells (including mesenchymal stem cells).5


Human placental membrane components

Extracellular matrix (ECM):

  • Collagen
  • Elastin
  • Fibronectin
  • Laminin

Growth factors and other mediators:*

  • EGF
  • bFGF
  • KGF
  • PDGF
  • VEGF
  • TGF-beta 1 and -beta 3
  • HGF
  • TIMP/MMP
  • NGAL

Living cells:

  • Epithelial cells
  • Fibroblasts
  • Mesenchymal stem cells
Human placental membrane components graph

Many placental membrane products. Only one GRAFIX PL Lyopreserved placental membrane.

Most human tissue products feature only growth factors and an extracellular matrix. GRAFIX PL and GRAFIXCryopreserved placental membranes retain all three native components of human tissue, including mesenchymal stem cells.1
