Product category: Other implants and protheses

Collagen Cell Carrier® (CCC) for implantation of therapeutic cells

The Collagen Cell Carrier (CCC) has been developed for implantology as a biocompatible and suturable vehicle to transfer, fix and support therapeutic cells at the recipient tissue.

The membrane of highly native and pure collagen fibers offers a natural scaffold for cells on which they organize to a cell complex prior to implantation. It then enables easy handling of the cell implant and can be sutured directly to the recipient tissue to immobilize the cells at the desired place. The in vivo-like matrix improves survival and targeted effect of the implanted cells enhancing efficiency and reducing costs of the therapy.

Though very thin (20 µm), thanks to the compact network of long fibers the membrane is remarkably strong without the need of extra chemical cross-linking thus ensuring high biocompatibility and biodegradability proven in several independent animal studies. Due to its high elasticity the CCC adheres snuggly even to moving organs so that the therapeutic cells have tight contact to the damaged tissue.

As the basis of a stem cell loaded Cardiopatch, the Collagen Cell Carrier will enter clinical trials at the end of 2018.

About us

Company details

Due to its central role in cell adhesion and organ formation, collagen is an ideal scaffold material for regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. With a background of 85 years of experience in the manufacturing of collagen products, our activities are focused on the industrial-scale production of bovine dermal collagen type I for biomedical applications.

We specialize in extracting insoluble, complex collagen type I fibers preserving their native structure and intactness. From this we generate pure collagen products with remarkable mechanical strength and maintained high biocompatibility as novel tools in regenerative medicine.

Offering our products in R&D- and medical grade quality, we facilitate the bench-to-bedside-transfer of the therapeutic approaches developed by our customers and also work on the development of novel treatments ourselves.

We are open to all kinds of collaboration depending on the needs of our counterparts: Joint product development, OEM manufacturing, raw material provision. Also companies interested in distribution of our products are wellcome.

Contact us at the Medica to explore with us opportunities to develop solutions for the medical market!
