ETS Wound Care Gains FDA Clearance for MIRRAGEN Advanced Wound Matrix

ETS Wound Care LLC, an Engineered Tissue Solutions (ETS) subsidiary focused on commercializing next generation wound care solutions, has announced that MIRRAGEN Advanced Wound Matrix was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of acute and chronic wounds. MIRRAGEN is a fully resorbable borate glass matrix comprised of fibers and beads proven to be highly effective in wound care management.

MIRRAGEN represents a breakthrough discovery for chronic and acute wound management due to its unique borate-based fiber matrix. MIRRAGEN is packed into wounds to manage and control wound fluids, while the resorbable matrix provides an environment for optimal wound healing. To learn more about the technology, click here.

“The recent FDA approval is a significant milestone for ETS,” said Chad Lewis, PhD, ETS Wound Care President & CEO. “ETS Wound Care is pioneering an entirely new therapeutic option for wound care. The MIRRAGEN Advanced Wound Matrix is the first product utilizing our innovative borate fiber technology engineered to improve patient outcomes.”

ETS Wound Care plans to make MIRRAGEN commercially available via a controlled domestic market release in early Q2 2017 and available to the broader domestic market in 2018. Later this week, the company will be an exhibitor at the Nation’s largest interdisciplinary wound care forum – the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Spring meeting (SAWC Spring) from April 6-8, 2017 in San Diego. Additional product information will be available at the ETS Wound Care exhibit booth (#602).
