Acelity is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, with more than 5,800 employees around the globe.\r\n\r\nLifeCell is focused on the development and commercialization of regenerative and reconstructive acellular tissue matrices for use in general and reconstructive surgical procedures to repair soft tissue defects, as well as autologous fat grafting solutions. \r\n\r\nThe LifeCell portfolio began with ALLODERM(tm) Regenerative Tissue Matrix, which launched in 1994, and expanded with the launch of STRATTICE(tm) Reconstructive Tissue Matrix in 2008, the same year that Kinetic Concepts, Inc. (KCI) acquired LifeCell. In 2012, LifeCell further expanded its portfolio with the launch of ALLODERM(tm) Ready to Use. In June 2013, LifeCell introduced the REVOLVE(tm) System to offer fast and efficient fat transfer processing for use in a range of aesthetic and reconstructive procedures. In 2014, KCI's parent company announced that KCI, LifeCell and Systagenix would operate under one global medical technology brand known as Acelity.
