Imbed Biosciences announced today that clinical results documenting the use of its products, Microlyte® Matrix and Microlyte® SURGICAL, will be presented at the Fall Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) in Las Vegas, NV from October 29th to 31st, 2021. SAWC is the nation’s largest interdisciplinary wound care forum.
Seven poster presentations, delivered by several of Imbed’s clinical collaborators, will highlight results in a variety of complex, chronic wounds and surgical applications, including: radiation breast wounds, lower extremity ulcers, a transmetatarsal amputation on a severely immunocompromised patient, wide excisional debridement of a pilonidal cyst, and a variety of home health cases including intertriginous dermatitis, a surgical dehiscence, and a traumatic crush injury. These clinical cases were conducted independently at the following institutions: Great Falls Clinic Wound Care Center (Great Falls, Montana), Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine, (Philadelphia, PA), Mount Sinai Hospital (New York, NY), Methodist Hospital For Surgery (Addison, TX), ProHealthcare, LLC (Dallas, TX), and Caritas Home Care (Dallas, TX).
Imbed will also host an hour-long Innovation Theater on Sunday 10/31 entitled “Intraoperative Management of Wounds Using Microlyte® SURGICAL” where Imbed co-founder Michael Schurr, MD will moderate a panel discussion on the use of Microlyte® SURGICAL in the operating room. The panel will include John C. Lantis, MD of Mount Sinai West Hospital (New York, NY), Ryan Chatelain, DPM of East Tennessee State University (Johnson City, TN), Shannon Payseur, MD of Methodist Hospital For Surgery (Addison, TX), and William Shillinglaw, DO of Mission Hospital (Ashville, NC).

“These research posters and panel discussion are the latest demonstrations of what Microlyte® Matrix and Microlyte® Surgical can do in treating challenging wounds of varying etiologies,” said Jeff Dalsin, PhD, Imbed’s Vice President of Operations. “We hear every day how Microlyte® Matrix is changing people’s lives. That makes our work exceptionally gratifying.”
The Microlyte® family of products are primarily composed of an ultrathin, resorbable polymeric film, which means it never needs to be removed from the wound bed. Microlyte® wound matrices are also fully synthetic, so there is no risk of disease transmission from animal based-components, and they have a long shelf-life under ambient conditions (2 years or more). Microlyte® Matrix and Microlyte® Surgical are cleared for application in acute wounds such as lacerations, skin tears, abrasions, surgical wounds (e.g., donor and graft sites, incisions), partial thickness first- and second-degree burns, and partial to full-thickness dermal ulcers such as, diabetic, decubitus, venous stasis, arterial stasis ulcers.
