FAQ

How are these products sourced?

All cellular products are sourced from volunteer donors who are qualified through an independent institutional review board (IRB) or through administration and completion of a Donor Risk Assessment Interview (DRAI).

How are these products isolated?

Mesenchymal Stromal/Stem Cells (MSC) are isolated, digested, washed, and expanded through validated standard operating procedures. Passages and doubling may be performed manually in successive flasks or through the use of a Quantum bioreactor.

How are the products strored?

MSC and HUVEC are vialed and stored in vapor state LN2.

Amnion is excised and frozen in -20C freezer.

How can the MSC and HUVEC be used?

Cells are vialed in 1×10^6 or 5×10^6 aliquots and can be used for further research applications. Cells should not be used in clinical applications at this time.

What characteristics do the MSC possess?

MSC are ACE2 Positive, CD34 Negative, CD44 Positive, CD73 Positive, CD90 Positive, and HLA-DR Negative. Additionally, they are tested and found to be negative for mycoplasma and endotoxin.
