AmnioChor's Story

AmnioChor's core competence and patented technology is based on improving, sustaining and saving lives from therapeutic derivations of the Amniotic Membrane of the placenta. Our journey begins with the ability to cryopreserve the tissue at birth for future us, or the immediate creation of creation of products that promote the tremendous healing components comprised in the membrane.
