The ReCell Spray-On Skin system for treating skin loss, scarring and depigmentation after burn injury

ReCell is a spray-on skin system for the treatment of burns in adults and children. ReCell Spray-On skin is prepared by harvesting keratinocytes, melanocytes, fibroblasts and Langerhans cells, from a thin split-thickness biopsy, into a suspension. This is delivered to the treatment area using a proprietary 'spray-on' application process with the whole preparation and application taking 20-30 minutes. The regenerative nature of these skin cells facilitates rapid healing.
