Electron Beam

Electron Beam technology terminally sterilizes tissue without compromising the biomechanical properties of the collagen. The Coll-e-Strong line of allografts bridges the gap between biomechanics and sterility. Electron beam sterilization provides several advantages over current allograft processing methods.

Safety is of the utmost concern for orthopedic surgeons. It is imperitive to have an allograft that is terminally sterile with a one in one million (1/1,000,000) chance of bio burden living in the tissue. Several preferred methods in the market today can only provide a one in one thousand (1/1,000) chance.

Historically, sterilization processes which render a terminally sterile allograft weaken the biomechanical properties of the tissue. Coll-e-Strong offers surgeons the distinct advantage of terminal sterility with no clinical change in biomechanical properties of the soft tissue.
