Include Amphotericin B with your Tissue Order
Fungal infections are serious for both surgeons and their patients. That’s why CorneaGen is the only US tissue processor offering an anti-fungal additive with all of our processed tissue!
  • CorneaGen is now offering surgeons the option to add Ampho B to the corneal tissue storage media. This decision comes in light of the rising trend of fungal infections after cornea transplants and represents our commitment to bring innovation to the cornea ecosystem.
  • From 2009 to 2016, there has been a 2-fold increase in EBAA rates of fungal infections after a cornea transplant. The rate of fungal infection is higher for Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEAK and DMEK) than Penetrating Keratoplasty, which could be a factor in the upward trend since these new techniques have become a more common industry practice.
  • Amphotercin B is only available with a tissue request (not as a stand alone product). To learn more about our tissue services, call (877) 726-7632 or visit our Services Page
