The Proprietary Tutoplast® Process

In 1969 the Tutoplast Tissue Sterilization Process was developed to sterilize and preserve tissue for implantation. More than 11 million implants have been sterilized through the Tutoplast Process with zero confirmed incidence of implant-associated infection.17

The Benefits of the Multi-Step Tutoplast Process

For allograft bone grafts, the process preserves the valuable bone mineral, collagen matrix, and tissue integrity 18 while inactivating pathogens and gently removing unwanted materials, such as cells, antigens, and viruses 17 – resulting in predictable, reliable, sterile, and safe tissue.17
