MTF Biologics Fact Sheet

MTF Biologics saves and heals lives by honoring donated gifts, serving patients and advancing science.

HISTORY

MTF Biologics has been involved with the recovery, aseptic processing and distribution of bone, tendons and ligaments since 1987, and with dermal tissue recovery, processing and distribution since 2005.
MTF Biologics was founded by leading academic orthopedic surgeons who identified an increasing need for high quality allograft tissue and a means to evaluate outcomes of orthopedic allograft surgery.
MTF Biologics was initially founded with the goal of increasing the availability of tissues, especially large grafts for orthopaedic oncology, through a centralized inventory of tissues. In the ensuing years, this goal has expanded to include the development of more technologically advanced tissues, which are processed from musculoskeletal tissues, adult stem cells and from skin. Affiliations with medical device companies have offered many new opportunities to ensure that the gifts of each donor are used in the most effective way possible. To date, MTF Biologics has recovered tissue from over 125,000 donors. Since our inception we have provided over 8 million allografts to surgeons, hospitals, dentists, clinicians and their patients.
