The 3M™ Cellutome™ Epidermal Harvesting System is a precise and automated epidermal harvesting tool that is intended to reproducibly cut a thin skin graft for autologous skin grafting in the outpatient or office setting.
• Harvests autologous epithelium
• No donor site anesthesia required
• Automated, precise and reproducible epidermal harvesting
• Minimal pain and donor-site trauma
The 3M™ Cellutome™ Epidermal Harvesting System is intended to reproducibly cut a thin skin graft for autologous skin grafting.
The harvester is a disposable component and is intended for single use only. Reuse of disposable components may result in contamination and infection.
Inspect the 3M™ Cellutome™ Epidermal Harvesting System before use for signs of visible damage. Do not use if there are any indications of damage.
Harvest from areas of healthy intact skin (donor site).
Actuating the harvester handle prior to complete microdome formation may result in patient pain and/or bleeding.
Actuating the harvester handle prior to placement of the dressing may result in an inability to secure the micrografts for application.
Wipe the vacuum head and the control unit nest following institutional procedures used for cleaning and disinfection of other hard surface durable electronic medical equipment between each patient use. Inadequate cleaning may result in patient contamination.
Use the harvester only with the 3M™ Cellutome™ Epidermal Harvesting System control unit and vacuum head.
Discard all disposable items (harvester and dressing) in accordance with the local medical waste disposal regulations.
Handle the vacuum head with care. Do not drop the vacuum head, as doing so could damage the glass warming window. Do not suspend or hold the vacuum head by the tubing.
Reversible maceration at the recipient site is a potential risk. Please use best clinical judgement for preventing maceration.
