to us, it’s personal.

Although our primary product is high-quality human amniotic tissue grafts, we are really in the business of helping people. Tides Medical® sources and acquires donated placentas to make advanced regenerative skin substitutes available to the patients who need them. Then we work with physicians and their staffs to help them navigate the complex reimbursement process.

Our goal in providing these advanced products and expert service is that we will remove the barriers that might prevent patients from accessing the full range of treatment options they deserve. It’s a challenge that our team takes personally.

advanced amniotic tissue grafts.

how it works.

Acquire

Birth mothers who have planned C-sections donate their placentas through Louisiana Organization for Transplant (LOFT), a division of Tides Medical. To ensure final product safety, donors undergo a series of tests, supervised by their OB-GYN, to confirm the donation meets all safety requirements/standards.

Process

Our in-house LOFT team acquires and transports donated placental tissue to our tissue bank located in Lafayette, Louisiana, where it is aseptically processed in an ISO Class 6 Cleanroom and terminally sterilized with radiation.

Manufacture

The Tides Tissue Bank manufactures a wide variety of high-quality amniotic tissue grafts in compliance with applicable regulations and FDA guidance, and the rigorous standards of the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB®)*.

Distribute

Our nationwide network of sales professionals work with customers to match patients in need of grafts for chronic wounds and various surgical procedures with the correct product. Tides maintains ample inventory options and offers overnight shipping to deliver products when and where they are needed.

Provide

In the physician’s office or hospital setting, our products can be stored at room temperature for up to 5 years from the date of manufacturing. They are easy to apply and can placed on either side facing the wound. Our grafts do not require sutures and remain in place when applied.
