AMNIOX® Medical Announces Relocation of Corporate Headquarters
ATLANTA – June 24, 2014 – Amniox Medical, Inc., a developer and marketer of restorative therapies processed from amniotic membrane and umbilical cord, announces the relocation of its corporate headquarters from Marietta, GA, to Atlanta, GA. The Company’s new facility is located in the Vinings section of Atlanta and is more than double the size of its previous headquarters. The larger facility will accommodate the rapid expansion of the Company as a result of the successful penetration of its proprietary technology in the orthopedic and wound care markets.
Amniox Medical is the only provider of a human tissue matrix composed of both amniotic membrane and umbilical cord. These fetal tissues have innate regenerative properties that can be preserved and transplanted to other environments. The Company’s amniotic membrane/umbilical cord matrix comprises key proteins, cytokines and growth factors that have been shown to modulate inflammation and promote regeneration of normal tissue. Amniox utilizes its proprietary CryoTek™ process, a cryopreservation technology, to preserve the biological and structural integrity of these tissues.
Founded in 2011, Amniox Medical is a subsidiary of TissueTech, Inc. TissueTech has successfully served the ophthalmic market with this technology for more than fifteen years and more than 130,000 ophthalmic patients have experienced the anti-inflammatory properties, decreased scar tissue formation and analgesic benefits offered by this technology.
“We are very pleased to move into our new facility,” said Aaron Smith, General Manager of Amniox Medical. “Since our inception, the adoption of this technology in the orthopedic and wound care sectors has been rapid and we quickly outgrew the capacity at our original site. The new facility will allow us to add the professional staff that we need to accommodate the continued growth of our business. The added capacity will ensure that even more patients will enjoy the clinical benefits that are only offered by our unique technology. ”
Amniox Medical serves clinicians and patients in chronic wound care as a covering and in surgical applications where fibrosis and adhesions are a concern. Combined, these two applications can be used to address the treatment needs of more than three million patients annually in the United States.
