ViviGen® & ViviGen Formable® Cellular Bone Matrix

ViviGen is a cellular allograft intended for repair or reconstruction of musculoskeletal defects. ViviGen is being utilized in fusion, nonunion, and malunion for foot/ankle or long bone trauma in patients with compromised biology.6- 11* It is comprised of three components that work in tandem to deliver superior healing potential compared to MSCs.1,2,3

1. Osteogenic ( Lineage Committed Bone Cells)The processing of ViviGen removes bone marrowcomponents including Mesenchymal Stem Cells whileretaining the desirable bone cells (osteoblasts,osteocytes and bone lining cells).1

2. Osteoconductive ( Corticocancellous Chips)Provide a natural scaffold for cell attachment, migrationand proliferation.1

3. Osteoinductive ( Demineralized Bone)A patented demineralization process exposes natural growth factors within the bone matrix that recruit hostcells and stimulate bone forming activity.1*

Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary. ViviGen is a registered trademark of LifeNet Health.The third party trademarks used herein are the trademarks of their respective owners.


Features & Benefits


Contains viable, lineage committed bone cells that areable to proliferate in vitro post cryopreservation and thaw4


Contains corticocancellous chips that provide a naturalscaffold for cell attachment, cell migration and cellproliferation1


Demineralization of the cortical bone exposes thenatural growth factors within the matrix1


Every lot is aseptically processed and tested for sterilityusing USP <71>1


The rapid heat transfer not only allows for all sizes tothaw in less than 5 minutes, but is also vital for cellviability5

Processing Time

ViviGen reaches cryopreservation within 72 hours maximizing cell viability 24 hours sooner than competitive products1

Maximized Cell Viability

The processing of ViviGen is focused on protecting viable, lineage committed bone cells from recovery to implantation1

Multiple Forms

ViviGen and ViviGen Formable provide a comprehensive solution to meet surgeons’ clinical needs
