The Tutoplast Process

The Puros Allograft family of products is refined using the proprietary, 5-stage Tutoplast sterilization process. While preserving the valuable collagen matrix and tissue integrity, this process gently removes unwanted materials such as cells, antigens and viruses, as well as inactivates pathogens. Tutoplast-Processed tissues have been used for over 30 years in more than one million procedures without a single reported case of disease transmission.
