AROA ECM™ is a proprietary extracellular matrix (ECM) biomaterial containing a rich and complex mix of biological molecules that is the building block for our range of soft tissue repair products.

AROA ECM™ is manufactured from the ovine (sheep) forestomach tissue, sourced exclusively from New Zealand pasture-raised animals.(1) The source tissue is minimally processed to separate tissue layers and decellularize the tissue ECM. The resulting bioscaffold technology has the structure, composition and function of the ECM that is found in all our soft tissues.(1)
