PASCO2® TECHNOLOGY

A NEW AND BETTER WAY TO STERILIZE ALLOGRAFT TISSUE

Precision Allograft Solutions, a partner of Alamo Biologics has revolutionized the sterilization process for biologics. PASCO2® technology provides allograft tissue with more tensile strength and elastic properties than traditional methodologies like irradiation.

SUPERCRITICAL CARBON DIOXIDE SETS THE STAGE FOR A FLAWLESS TISSUE TRANSPLANT

The revolutionary PASCO2® sterilization process relies on supercritical carbon dioxide to extract unwanted compounds from soft tissues without compromising their integrity. Balancing the pressure and temperature of the fluid, allograft tissue is prepared for use in a problem-free tissue transplant. PASCO2® is perfect for sports medicine allografts and other reconstructive procedures.

ELIMINATING BLOOD AND LIPIDS WITHOUT DAMAGING ALLOGRAFT TISSUE

PASCO2® technology sterilization process uses a highly effective, validated washing procedure, plus a mild, nontoxic sterilizing agent to rid allografts of blood particles and lipids. This process does not jeopardize the tensile strength and elastic properties of the connective tissue being cleaned. PASCO2® technology maximizes bio-compatibility and mechanical integrity in donor tissue.

CRAFTING TISSUE GRAFTS WITH EXACTING STANDARDS

Our trained surgical technicians operate in certified class 100 clean rooms. The PASCO2® process is based on ISO 14937:2009 sterilization for health care products to process donated human tissue into high-quality reconstructive and sports medicine allografts. Allograft tissue is processed to a validated Sterility Assurance Level of 10-6.

PASCO2® TECHNOLOGY’S ADVANTAGES

  • Thoroughly inactivates pathogenic microorganisms
  • Allows for increased cell proliferation
  • Assists with reduction of postoperative inflammation and foreign body reaction
  • Reduces incorporation time
  • Increases tissue’s ability to endure physiological demands

TISSUE BANKING WITH A HEART

We value the gift of donation and we go to great lengths in screening, recovery, processing, storage, and distribution of donor tissue. We maintain the utmost respect for donors and maximize the benefit for allograft tissue recipients. For information regarding our processes please click below.
