Storage and date expiry update

Tissuemed has announced a positive change to the storage conditions required for its products. Following notified body review all products in the TissuePatch range will carry 3 year shelf life with storage conditions between 2degC and 25degC.

Commenting on the change, Tissuemed’s Regulatory Affairs Director David Mandley stated; “This change is good news from a commercial perspective. It means that hospitals can now be less concerned about expiry date and also will find the product more readily to hand when they need it without having to go to the refrigerator. Importantly the changes will be phased in as inventory is utilised, which means that for the time being there will be a mixture of expiry dated product out there. Product should therefore continue to be stored according to the labelling attached to it.”
