the artacleanse® process

sterile. safe. proprietary.

The Artacleanse Process is performed in Tides Medical’s AATB®-accredited* tissue bank by expert technicians. Every Artacleanse-labeled product begins with donated placental tissue from a planned C-section. From collection in the operating room to the final sterile packaging, the tissue meets the highest standards for manufacturing safety and quality.

Tides’ Artacleanse Process is strong enough to make a graft safe for implantation but gentle enough to maintain the natural biologic factors. Ensuring the integrity of our grafts is our top priority because we put patient health first.

how the tides process 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®)*.
