Protect the graft. Protect the repair.

XenMatrix™ AB is the first antibacterial-coated, non-crosslinked porcine dermal graft proven to inhibit the colonization of MRSA, E. coli, and other bacteria in preclinical models.1,2



XenMatrix™ AB is the first antibacterial-coated, non-crosslinked porcine dermal graft proven to inhibit the colonization of MRSA, E. coli, and other bacteria in preclinical models.1,2 It uses a combination of well-characterized antibiotics, Rifampin and Minocycline, to offer an unmatched level of graft protection in challenging ventral hernia repair.


The XenMatrix™ AB coating uses Rifampin and Minocycline, an antibacterial combination with demonstrated clinical results in other medical devices.3

  • Protects the graft prior to neovascularization.
  • Provides protection from biofilm formation caused by MRSA and E. coli.

Shown to reduce bacterial colonization in 5 different medical devices:

  • Central Venous Catheters (CVC)
  • External Ventricular Drain Catheters (EVD)
  • Hemodialysis Catheters
  • Inflatable Penile Prostheses (IPP)
  • Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Device (CIED) Envelopes

These devices coated with Rifampin and Minocycline are well-studied in clinical literature; 30 publications including 67,000 patients and 6 randomized controlled trials.3

No instances of microbial resistance to the combination of Rifampin and Minocycline have been reported.

No complications or adverse events due to the antibiotic content for on-label use have been reported.
