PalinGen SportFlow is a human placental derived allograft rich with the basic components that help heal injured tissue, while preventing inflammation and scarring.

These components work together at the site of injury so new cells can form, and the injured tissue can be repaired, remodeled, and rebuilt back to its normal state. SportFlow has potent natural anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrotic and antimicrobial properties. Dr. Armin V.

As the Amnion (innermost layer of the placenta) protects the fetus during development, PalinGen SportFlow provides the same to injured or traumatized tissue. The chorion is removed to reduce the risk of graft host reaction. PalinGen SportFlow is obtained from healthy donors who have volunteered to donate their amniotic fluid, after undergoing elective healthy Caesarian delivery. Each donor has submitted their past medical history, social history, and serologies for Medical Director review. The donated tissue is collected aseptically, then tested at the time of collection to ensure viability and saftey, then again before processing and cleansing, then again after preparation and once again a percentage of units per USP standard are selected for testing. PalinGen SportFlow is processed to the highest standards in a state-of-the-art AATB accredited and FDA regulated facility.
