CelGro™ - Collagen Medical Device
A True Regenerative Medicine Medical Device
A unique collagen scaffold available for sale in Europe
CelGro™ is a unique collagen medical device that augments tissue repair and regeneration. CelGro™ exhibits a number of qualities that make it ideal for use as a tissue repair and regeneration device and has a wide range of uses in dental, orthopaedic and general surgical applications.
CelGro™ has shown to improve tissue repair in multiple applications including regenerating dental bone and soft tissue, augmenting the repair of the rotator cuff tendon within the shoulder, assisting in the re-joining of severed or damaged peripheral nerves and repairing articular cartilage in the hip.
CelGro™ is currently available for sale in the EU and affiliated jurisdictions (CE Mark) for dental bone and soft tissue applications. This market authorisation validates CelGro™ ’s quality manufacturing and product performance, and provides a strong foundation for indication expansion, such as orthopaedic applications in addition to further regulatory approvals

CelGro™ represents a breakthrough in soft tissue repair and regeneration. It offers significant global commercial potential through its existing addressable markets in bone, tendon, nerve and cartilage, as well as much wider applications in general surgical and soft tissue reconstructive applications.
Key Benefits and Features
CelGro™ is manufactured by Orthocell at its quality controlled Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) licensed facility in Australia using its proprietary SMRT™ tissue engineering process. The SMRT™ process produces a highly purified, biocompatible and versatile scaffold that can be used for tissue repair and regeneration in diverse surgical applications.
CelGro™ is unique from existing commercial collagen scaffolds. Key benefits and features include:
Proven compatibility – SMRT™ process removes all foreign tissue components and is completely absorbed by the body.
Ideal mechanical properties – easy to use, ductile and very strong.
Superior tissue repair capability – preservation of natural collagen structure promotes repair and regeneration.
Versatile – can be used on its own or in conjunction with cells and growth factors.
Australian sourced raw material of the highest quality.
How does CelGro™ work?
CelGro™ 's strength, compatibility and tissue guiding qualities are central to its effectiveness as a regenerative medical device. CelGro™ augments repair, protects the area of injury and guides the healing process. A bioactive chamber is created by CelGro™ 's natural bilayer structure, which features smooth and rough sides.
1. Smooth layer - parallel arrangement of densely packed collagen bundles with abundant pores that permit the passage of fluids and nutrient molecules, whilst preventing the invasion of external tissue into the site of tissue bone regeneration.
2. Rough layer - consists of loosely arranged collagen bundles facilitating integration of cells. It is applied to the tissue/defect site.
3. Tissue remodelling - cells from the regenerating tissue integrate with the collagen fibres guiding high quality tissue regeneration.
