bio-ConneKt® Wound Matrix
The bio-ConneKt® Wound Matrix, an FDA - cleared advance wound care product is manufactured and distributed by MLM Biologics, a Gainesville, FL based medical device company. It is a versatile device that is indicated for the treatment of a variety of skin breaches (acute, chronic, traumatic, surgical, decubitus, Post-Mohs, burns). With more than a hundred different options in the marketplace, clinicians and administrators constantly face trade-offs on quality, efficacy, pricing, and logistics when selecting an ideal wound care treatment option. Here is how the MLM option can successfully address these challenges:
The bio-ConneKt® wound matrix is marketed as a terminally sterile product that is manufactured in an ISO 13485 certified facility. The product boasts over 6 years of adverse event free history, and successful outcomes from multiple audits including the FDA, in light of the industry best quality control steps and a smart manufacturing environment implemented by the company.
bio-ConneKt® has helped heal more than 2000 wounds successfully, often as a single application of the product considering the company's collagen stabilization technology. The product offers one of the industry's best option for complementary wound treatment, as a delivery option (antibiotics, antimicrobials, growth factors), as-well an adjunct concurrently with NPWT (due to the porous and mechanically robust architecture). Designed to eliminate repeat applications, bio-ConneKt® is an especially timely option now, as it minimizes patient re-visits to the clinic and supports social distancing from a clinical perspective.
While priced favorably against the industry leaders and reimbursed by CMS as a "high-cost skin substitute", the true value of bio-ConneKt® is in the total wound closure cost (due to minimizing repeat applications and clinic visits). The company also entertains direct institutional contracts, direct sales (no intermediary sales commissions), and a "capped pricing" option (fixed price to treat a given wound based on wound size). All these options are meant to reduce the burden on administrators and providers, to maximize their efforts in getting patients healed.
Being a room-temperature stored product with a 4-year shelf life, bio-ConneKt® offers easy storage and inventorying across the wound care provider continuum (doctor’s office, ASC, in-hospital, LTACHs, SNFs, home health care, etc,). With a short prep time (no specific side selection, brief hydration), and with the ability to cooperatively work with all other wound care sundries, it improves operating room efficiency for the clinical team (no “last mile” problems). An "in-person" technical or administrative assistance (no sales representative or automated phone messages) from the company is available 24/7.
The company also encourages institutions to assess the medical-economic advantage of bio-ConneKt® by freely participating in trial use of the product or submitting to a head-to-head total wound closure cost with any other product.
