THE HYDRATEK® PROCESS
HRT®’s advanced HydraTek® process has produced an extensive product offering, including a variety of membrane products, a Cryo-preserved connective tissue matrix and the world’s first ambient temperature, connective tissue matrix allograft. This patent-pending formulation is the only one of its kind in market, and offers physicians and facilities an off-the-shelf, ready-to-use connective tissue matrix for homologous use.
HydraTek® allografts are not compromised by the industry’s standard drying methods, which may lead to protein denaturing and collagen collapse.
HydraTek® flowable grafts are uniquely processed to preserve the natural structure and biological integrity, providing the connective tissue matrix in its natural consistency for improved delivery and performance.
HydraTek® membrane allografts have optimally reduced hydration levels to provide ideal graft handling, strength and performance.

BENEFITS OF PLACENTAL TISSUE
Amniotic and placental tissues are a rich natural source of human ExtraCellular Matrix (ECM) and connective tissue components. The ECM contains a protein system that provides the foundation for the body’s tissues and organs.[1,2] The placental ECM is unique, in that its young, viable proteins have not deteriorated throughout the life cycle of the body.
Amniotic membranes provide an ideal human tissue membrane that covers, protects, and provides natural gliding capabilities between tissues.[3,4]
Natural Source of Growth Factors
Growth factors contained in the ECM include PDGF, VEGF, EGF, FGF and TGF-B.
The ECM also contains Collagens I, III, IV, V, VI, VII, fibrous proteins that provide a structural scaffold.[5,6] Fibronectin, integrins, laminins, and hyaluronans also play a key role in adherence to the scaffold.[7-9]
Amniotic membranes are shown to contain naturally anti-inflammatory properties, which may limit the risk of fibrous tissue growth and potential scar tissue formation.[11,12]
Amniotic membranes are ‘immune-privileged’, possessing little or no risk of foreign body reaction, which can lead to fibrosis and graft failure.
Application of amniotic membrane as a wound covering has been shown to reduce bacteria counts in the wound, demonstrated against a wide range of bacteria.
