Mechanism of Action

Autologous epidermal skin grafting is a minimally invasive treatment option for the closure of wounds. Epidermal skin grafting was shown to be successful on superficial, granulated wounds that are free of necrotic tissue and surrounding infection. Watch the mechanism of action video below to learn more.


System Overview

The CelluTome Epidermal Harvesting System is intended to reproducibly harvest a thin skin graft for autologous skin grafting.

Device Description

The reusable components of the CelluTome Epidermal Harvesting System:

  • Control Unit

    The Control Unit creates and regulates the vacuum and warming required to raise the epidermal microdomes.

  • Vacuum Head

    The Vacuum Head and tubing deliver the vacuum and warming from the Control Unit.

The disposable component of the CelluTome Epidermal Harvesting System:

  • Harvester

    The Harvester holds the suction microdomes that are raised for procurement. A 3M Tegaderm Film (catalog number: 1624W) is inserted into the Harvester prior to cutting the microdomes. The 3M Tegaderm Film with the microdomes is then applied to the recipient site.


NOTE: Specific indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and safety information exist for KCI products and therapies. Before use, physicians must review all risk information and essential prescribing information which can be found in the CelluTome™ Epidermal Harvesting System Instructions for Use. Rx only.

Procedure Overview

The CelluTome System produces an array of epidermal micrografts ready for immediate transfer onto a recipient site.

Automated, uniform process

4.9X magnification of a microdome array section

The harvesting procedure is precise and reproducible, raising uniform microdomes (photo: Full microdome formation, optimal microdome height with clear fluid encapsulated in microdome, ready to harvest into micrografts.)

Effective harvesting procedure

Histological microdome cross-section; 100X magnification. BK = basal layer keratinocyte; SC = stratum corneum.

The CelluTome™ System consistently harvests epidermis at the dermal-epidermal junction, including basal keratinocytes. (photo: Histological microdome cross-section; 100X magnification. BK = basal layer keratinocyte; SC = stratum corneum.)

Viable Epithelium for Skin Grafting
