Plasma-Based Materials: Naturally promote healing & reduce complications

Founded in 2007 as a spin out from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, Carmell Therapeutics has created a unique & highly innovative patented technology based on biologically-active materials manufactured from human blood plasma. These plasma-based materials (PBMs) contain a concentration of natural regenerative factors that promote healing in various clinical settings, reduce complications, and, as a result, save healthcare costs. Unlike previous approaches to delivering growth factors to injuries/surgeries, Carmell has patented the capability to create medical devices with pooled plasma that can be tuned as part of the manufacturing process to breakdown in the body over different periods of time (days, weeks or months) releasing the active biologics when the body needs them to accelerate healing. The company has successfully developed multiple forms, such as pastes, putties, scaffolds, plugs and screws, using pooled plasma from healthy donors with its proprietary cross linking process.
