CellRight is focused on innovative product development expanding the potential of regenerative solutions in the osteobiologics field, offering surgeons and patients a biologic product portfolio.
With products that are 100% allograft bone, the innovative platform technology preserves the native Bone Morphogenic Proteins (BMPs) and growth-factors to verify osteoinductivity needed for bone regeneration, resulting in best-in-class products and ensuring superior clinical outcomes. CellRight verifies osteoinductivity for every lot post sterilization and these osteogenic bioengineered implants address indications in the spine, trauma, TJA and sports medicine fields.
The CellRight technology complements dCELL® Technology, Tissue Regenix’ patented decellularization process for soft tissues. In due course, soft tissue products for use in various orthopedics applications, with an initial focus on ligament reconstruction, will also be processed at the state-of-the-art CellRight tissue bank facility based in San Antonio, Texas.

About Tissue Regenix
Tissue Regenix is a leading medical devices company in the field of regenerative medicine. Tissue Regenix was formed in 2006 when it was spun-out from the University of Leeds, UK. The company's patented decellularisation ('dCELL®') technology removes DNA and other cellular material from animal and human soft tissue leaving an acellular tissue scaffold which is not rejected by the patient's body and can then be used to repair diseased or worn out body parts. Current applications address many critical clinical needs such as sports medicine, heart valve replacement and wound care.
In November 2012 Tissue Regenix Group plc set up a subsidiary company in the United States - 'Tissue Regenix Wound Care Inc.', January 2016 saw the establishment of joint venture GBM-V, a multi- tissue bank based in Rostock, Germany.
In August 2017 Tissue Regenix acquired CellRight Technologies®, a biotech company that specializes in regenerative medicine and is dedicated to the development of innovative osteoinductive and wound care scaffolds that enhance healing opportunities of defects created by trauma and disease.
