Blockade™ Amniotic Protective Barrier


Blockade™ is a dehydrated placental allograft that is minimally processed to maintain important natural extracellular matrix components. Blockade is intended to be used as a protective barrier for various anatomies and can be used as a wound covering or to maintain a mobile tissue plane between the surgical site and surrounding tissues.

Blockade™ Amniotic Protective Barrier retains key growth factors, cytokines and matrix proteins known to prevent inflammation and infection, as well as facilitate angiogenesis and tissue remodeling.

Natural Protection

Blockade contains key matrix proteins, growth factors and cytokines found naturally in amnion and chorion tissue. It is obtained from live, healthy donors who have undergone strict screening and testing to ensure tissue safety. 

Excellent Handling 

Blockade is naturally conformable to adhere closely to complex anatomic contouring and offers excellent handling properties due to a specialized dehydration process.


Blockade has demonstrated to not elicit an immune response in a mixed lymphocyte reaction assayIt is aseptically processed to maintain tissue integrity – no terminal sterilization and no chemical crosslinking.
