SYMATESE - NEVELIA® Bi-Layer Matrix
NEVELIA® Bi-Layer Matrix is a matrix that serves as a support (scaffold) for the infiltration of patient cells and thus contributes to the natural process of tissue regeneration. The medical grade silicone layer consists of a silicone elastomer reinforced with a polyester material, which acts as a ‘pseudo-epidermis’, protecting the wound from bacterial infection and other damage
