About Kerecis

Kerecis develops tissue-regeneration biologic matrixes consisting of patented Omega3-containing fish skin. Production takes place in Kerecis' manufacturing facilities in Iceland. Biologic matrixes are materials made from human or animal tissue where the original material is intact, but all cells and antigenic materials have been removed. The Kerecis fish-skin material accelerates wound healing and enables tissue reconstruction.

This FDA-approved material offers advantages over existing human- and porcine-derived products, including improved manufacturing economics and a lower risk of disease transfer. Since it is derived from fish, the material is both kosher and halal compatible, eliminating cultural and religious constraints to usage, with equivalent or better clinical performance than alternative approaches.

The Kerecis technology has received U.S. patents, and has patents pending in multiple countries around the world. The materials are available in Iceland, Denmark, the UK, Turkey and several Middle East and Asian markets. Distributor inquiries are welcome. For more information, visit www.kerecis.com.
