Tissue and collagen bio-scaffolds have become a unique yet vital part of various medical specialties, especially emergency medicine. The ever-evolving field of wound care in particular relies on these scaffolds to change and save lives. Once the raw material is harvested from bovine, porcine, shellfish, human or ovine sources, it must be stabilized for preservation, transport, and long-term storage.
That’s where freeze drying is crucial – it accomplishes all this without any degradation to the tissue. Freeze drying also enables control of collagen pore sizes.
