In observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday, PuraGraft will be closed Thursday November 28th and Friday November 29th. Shipping will resume Monday December 2nd. To avoid shortages during the holiday, please place your orders early.

Pre-hydrated Block Graft

Aqueous Solution Preservation (ASP)

Exclusive ASP technology combines an isotonic calcium chloride preservation media with a state of the art PETE trays system to provide allografts immediately ready for implantation. The technology allows allografts to be stored in a fully hydrated state at ambient temperature eliminating the need for lengthy graft preparation.

  • Retains the native biomechanical strength of the allograft
  • Preserves the natural biological structure of the tissue by preventing calcium leaching into the storage media
  • Eliminates microcracks that can be formed during freeze-drying processes
  • Provides a biologically favorable environment for tissue remodeling
  • Validated for a five-year shelf life


Biomechanical testing revealed cervical allografts preserved in ASP display equivalent mechanical strength to frozen grafts and superior mechanical strength to lyophilized grafts.
