Raydiance to collaborate with Rutgers University, MTF to develop innovative tissue processing approaches.
Raydiance, Inc., Petaluma, CA and New Brunswick, NJ, announced it has entered into collaboration with Rutgers University, New Brunswick, and the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation (MTF), Edison, NJ designed to improve the science of dermal tissue processing. In a first-of-its-kind test, tissue engineers will utilize a new type of laser developed on the Raydiance Ultrashort Pulse (USP) laser platform to maximize the transplants processed from donated dermal tissue, the company said in a press release.
The collaboration involves MTF as the project sponsor, Rutgers as the center for developing innovative tissue processing approaching and Raydiance as the core laser technology provider. Experts from all three parties will work towards providing more advanced technology that results in less expensive and faster solutions for patients needing skin transplants for burn, complicated hernia repair and reconstructive procedures.
The Raydiance laser can instantly vaporize material without heat or residual damage at very precise scales, down to a resolution of several microns. The initial phase of the project will focus on the feasibility of the laser processing donor skin in a variety of areas.
