Kerecis® Omega3 Wound is a fish-skin graft that is homologous to human skin and is used for tissue regeneration. The fish skin is a natural microbial barrier.
• Homologous to human skin and rich in Omega3
• Two non-industry funded, double-blind RCTs
• Faster healing than amnion membrane and mammalian tissue
• Superior economic performance
• Natural microbial barrier
• Sustainably harvested
Kerecis® Omega3 Wound is indicated for partial- and full-thickness wounds, pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, chronic vascular ulcers, diabetic ulcers, trauma wounds (abrasions, lacerations, second-degree burns, skin tears), surgical wounds (donor sites/grafts, post-Mohs surgery, post-laser surgery, podiatric, wound dehiscence) and draining wounds.
Contraindicated for use on patients with a known allergy or other sensitivity to fish material.
Remove most of the necrotic tissue prior to device application.
Remove exudate and control bleeding prior to device application.
Do not reuse or re-sterilize.
Discard unused portions of device.
Sterile if package is unopened and undamaged.
Do not use device if package seal has been broken or if handling has caused damage or contamination.
Do not use in case of known fish allergies.
Store at or below 25°C (no more than 40°C), away from direct sunlight. Keep dry. For one time use only.
Intact, decellularized, lyophilized fish skin

Chronic Vascular Ulcers
Partial- and Full-Thickness Wounds
Always handle Kerecis® Omega3 Wound in an aseptic manner. When applying Kerecis® Omega3 Wound for the first time, clean the wound bed by removing necrotic tissue to obtain a fresh tissue surface. Irrigate excessive exudate. Control bleeding. Remove the Kerecis® Omega3 Wound sheet from the pouch in an aseptic manner. Cut the sheet roughly to the size of the area to be covered and pre-hydrate in NaCl solution. Apply sheet directly to wound, making sure that the sheet does not overlap the wound edges. More than one sheet may be necessary for complete coverage. Overlap sheet edges slightly to assure coverage of the entire wound. Apply an appropriate secondary, non-adherent wound dressing to maintain a moist wound environment.
Non-adherent secondary dressing
Kerecis is pioneering the use of fish skin and fatty acids for tissue regeneration, with the mission to extend life by supporting the body's own ability to regenerate.
