Affinity® is a fresh amniotic membrane containing many types of cells, growth factors, and extracellular matrix proteins. Aseptically processed and hypothermically preserved using a proprietary storage system.
• Fresh hypothermically stored, which preserves the membrane's native ECM, growth factors, and maintains cell viability
• Innate anti-scarring properties
• Provides anti-inflammatory properties
• Shown to increase the rate and quality of tissue healing and repair
Affinity® can be applied to a variety of partial- and full-thickness, acute and chronic wounds, including, but not limited to:
• Arterial ulcers
• Diabetic foot ulcers
• Pressure ulcers
• Surgical wounds
• Trauma wounds
• Venous leg ulcers
Contraindicated for use when there is an active or latent infection in or around the surgical implantation site, sensitivity or allergies to any of the processing agents utilized during processing, or for use in immune compromised patients.
Single patient, single use only. Do not sterilize or re-sterilize. Do not use if expiration date has been exceeded.
Transmission of diseases of unknown etiology; Transmission of known infectious agents including, but not limited to, viruses, bacteria, and fungi; Immune rejection of implanted HCT/P; Loss of function and/or integrity of implanted HCT/P due to resorption, fragmentation, and/or disintegration.
All fresh allografts must be maintained at refrigerated temperature (between 1°C and 10°C) during storage.

Remove Affinity® from its sterile packaging and rinse with a sterile irrigant using aseptic techniques.
The stromal side (to be placed in contact with the wound bed) can be easily identified by touching a sterile cotton swab to both sides of Affinity®:
• The stromal side will be sticky.
• The epithelial side will be smooth.
Trim Affinity® as needed so that is slightly larger than the wound bed.
Slide Affinity® onto the wound so that the stromal side is in contact with the wound bed (using two forceps at the corners of the product will help to maintain correct orientation).
A non-adherent, non-occlusive primary dressing may be used directly over the graft.
