ReCell® is a medical device that has been used to treat thousands of patients worldwide. ReCell® can be used in conjunction with conventional treatments such as mesh grafting for burns and reconstructive procedures.
ReCell®’s unique proprietary technology enables a clinician to rapidly create RES™ – Regenerative Epithelial Suspension – using just a small sample of the patient’s skin.
The disaggregated cells in RES™ are no longer contact-inhibited12 and therefore behave like those at an acute wound’s edge. RES™ introduces the cell signalling associated with wound healing across the surface area of the wound.
RES™ contains the multiple skin cell phenotypes and normal wound healing factors19 that are necessary for the restoration of normal skin functionality and appearance.10
ReCell® offers distinct advantages in the treatment of wounds caused by burns:
Avita Medical’s range regenerative devices are used by clinicians to prepare RES™ – Regenerative Epithelial Suspension™. RES™ is an autologous suspension composed of the cells and wound-healing factors necessary to regenerate natural, healthy skin.
Effective healing and the formation of good quality skin requires the presence and products of keratinocytes, fibroblasts and melanocytes.10-14 RES™ contains viable populations of all these skin cell phenotypes and enables earlier definitive closure by replacing all of these across the whole wound. This enables healing across the surface of the wound rather than just from the edges and dermal appendages.13-15 These cells are highly interactive and communicate with each other via secreted factors, their receptors and via cell/cell contacts resulting in the regeneration of normal, pigmented skin.12,16-18
