What is a Nanofiber Matrix?

Acera Surgical has engineered a new class of resorbable nanofabricated matrices designed to restore damaged tissue.


Acera's patented technology enables the engineering of matrices which closely resemble native human extracellular matrix in structure and architecture. The nanofiber products developed with this technology have been shown to deliver patient healing without the limitations of traditional biologics.

The nanofiber matrix is engineered from intricately designed fibers to create a fully resorbable healing scaffold. Native cells rapidly migrate into the scaffold, and then proliferate and differentiate to form new granulation tissue.

Gradual and defined resorption of the nanofiber scaffold is designed to occur at a similar rate to cellular ingrowth and new tissue formation. As the scaffold resorbs, the porosity of the matrix gradually increases to support continued tissue integration and neovascularization, while eliciting a minimal inflammatory response.

The nanofiber matrix is easy to handle and apply in the clinical setting. The soft and flexible material easily conforms to the wound site, yet is strong enough to manipulate and suture as needed.

I believe that nanofiber technology has the potential to really change the way that clinicians approach wound healing.

While researchers have studied the potential of nanofibers for many years, Acera's groundbreaking technology has enabled the pioneering of practical applications for patient healing.  

The nanofiber matrices are a completely synthetic material and do not elicit excessive inflammation, a complaint of traditional treatments. Nanofiber products are also ideal for patients who raise ethical or religious objections to traditional biologics. 

With our patented technology, Acera Surgical has engineered a revolution in healing.
