With a core competency in human cell and tissue banking and adhering to the highest ethical standards, we have focused our efforts on creating an animal tissue bank to fulfill unmet needs of animal patients, veterinarians, veterinary hospitals and research and teaching universities worldwide.
We also provide customized processing for special needs, including not only individual patients, but also for researchers and companies in need of animal cell or tissue grafts who are developing better techniques and products involving graft materials. Processed cells or tissue for animal species besides canines, felines and equines, (such as, goat, pig, sheep, monkey, rat, rabbit, etc.) is done on a custom request basis.
In addition to musculoskeletal and ocular tissues, our staff has experience in processing and preserving a wide variety of cells and tissues, these include: skin grafts, heart valves, bone marrow, cartilage, cord blood, amnion, and pancreatic islets.
Since its formation in 1996, VTS has become well-known around the world for supplying aseptically processed allograft tissues and providing tens of thousands of grafts for veterinary patients. Our musculoskeletal grafts are commonly used in fracture repairs, spinal fusions, void filling caused by trauma or degenerative processes, and limb spare procedures to replace cancerous tissue. Use of allograft tissues processed by VTS can reduce patient morbidity, operative time, and costs.
