Gerbig Engineering Company, Burnsville, MN has completed a procine extraction facility consisting of several ISO class 7 cleanrooms. The facility takes in special porcine organs and processes them such that they contain no porcine cells. The organ is then ready for implantation into humans.
The Miromatrix Medical technology has the potential to enable the creation of fully biological replacement organs for the human body. In addition to the Company’s internal efforts focused on the development of its first product – a biological mesh for hernia repair – scientists around the globe are working with the Company’s technology and are taking critical steps toward the creation of human organs including the liver, lung, kidney, pancreas and heart. While our biological mesh development program has been conducted internally, our intent is for current and future products to be developed both at Miromatrix and in partnership with the best among those external groups already working with our technology in order to utilize this pre-existing expertise to develop individual products in the most efficacious, cost-effective and timely way possible.
