xenobass is a new biological design that uses skin from largemouth bass to treat severe burns.

Fish Skin Bandages

Sound crazy, right? Well, doctors in Brazil have been using Tilapia skin bandages to treat burn wounds for the last three years, with great success.

The Stats

Every year, 486,000 people in the United States seek treatment for burn wounds. Roughly 50,000 of people are hospitalized for severe burns.

How it works

Fish skin bandages are effective because they contain high concentrations of collagen which promotes skin growth, and the exterior creates a sterile barrier to prevent infection.
