Delivering tissue, on-time, the day of your scheduled surgery (unless requested earlier).
CorneaGen strictly adheres to safe shipping standards for local, national and international corneal tissue orders.
This starts with ensuring that tissue is packed appropriately in a container that maintains cooling for the duration of the shipment. The containers we use are inexpensive, but effective for transporting tissue to and from eye banks, surgeons and surgery centers.
We performed a study to validate our tissue shipping methods. Access the full report published in Cornea: The Journal of Cornea and External Disease, or read the abstract.
We ship tissue to arrive on the day you request delivery. Please order tissue at least seven days in advance of the scheduled surgery. Learn more on the Order Tissue page.
