Difference is in the details

The stem cell therapeutics we offer are of the highest quality and include the most complete profile of cellular components available. This proprietary blend contains mesenchymal stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, cytokines, exosomes, collagen scaffolding, hyaluronic acid, lipids, proteins, and other nutrients. This results in a nutrient dense broad spectrum product rich in therapeutic components.

We believe in clean products free of unnecessary additives. The stem cell biologics we offer are free of enzymes, detergents and additives such as fetal bovine serum. Stem cells are minimally manipulated and not radiated. They are processed in a manner to preserve the highest concentration of therapeutic elements. Products are available with one of two cryopreservative formulations: DMSO, the most common preservative in the industry, or a unique DMSO-free biologic for patients with sulfa allergies.

The Donor Process

The proprietary process begins with meticulous screening of the donor mother and father as well as family members for several generations. In addition to routine industry screens for bloodborne pathogens, there is also screening for heritable and non-heritable conditions, environmental contaminants from medications, alcohol, drugs, tobacco, and electronic vaping. Only healthy families who meet or exceed these criteria are considered. Postnatal tissue donations are promptly collected from local hospitals specialists following a healthy cesarean birth. After processing, allografts are tested again to ensure they are free of contaminants or infection, and contain healthy, viable cells prior to cryopreservation.

Lots are quarantined for 14 days and thoroughly tested for bacterial, communicable and other disease contamination by a CLIA-certified lab. In addition, plate testing is conducted in multiple phases of the process to ensure zero contamination.

Diseases that are tested for donation eligibility:

  • Hepatitis Bs Ag
  • Hepatitis Bc Ab
  • HTLV I/II Ab
  • Hepatitis C Ab
  • HIV 1&2 Plus O Ab
  • CMV ab
  • RPR (Non-treponemal syphilis)
  • HIV-1/HCV/HBV NAT (Ultrio)
  • WNV NAT

Eligibility

Meticulous screening of donor mothers and fathers, as well as family members ensures product safety and viability.

Collection

A Recovery Specialist collects the postnatal donation at the designated hospital and returns the donation to be documented and processed.

Testing

All lots are quarantined for 14 days and thoroughly tested for bacterial and disease contamination by a CLIA certified lab.

Processing

Our proprietary process meets the FDA’s requirements of cells and tissues being minimally manipulated.

REGULATORY

Stem cells are unspecialized cells with the ability to renew and divide to become more specialized cells. They are a repair system for the body. These cells may then be used to replace other cells and tissue that have been damaged or lost due to injury or disease.  Doctors and scientists are excited about the potential applications of stem cells in many different areas of medicine.

Why We Need Stem Cells

As we age, our stem cells which are responsible for regeneration and repair, decline in number and function. Healing from injury and disease requires a well-orchestrated regenerative response, with ample healing cells and factors. With age, the quality and quantity of stem cells decline and we no longer have the healing capacity we used to. At birth 1 in every 10,000 cells is a stem cell, by age 60, it’s estimated that only 1 in 2 million cells is a stem cell. As cells become more fragile we start seeing things such as reduced healing time, bone and joint problems, and diseases.

Stem Cell Basics

MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS (MSCs)

MSCs are self-renewing, multipotent precursors to other cell types and tissues. Scientists have found MSCs in many tissues from young to old. As we age, we appear to have fewer MSCs with the older MSCs typically behaving differently from the younger MSCs. MSCs have exciting potential and have shown great promise, whether we use our own aged MSCs or a graft from postnatal sources. MSCs have demonstrated indirect local effects (similar to paracrine activity) that appears to be active for many weeks – possibly longer. It is thought that they may be responding to their local environment and, like healthy refreshed soldiers, may be able to effect change and regeneration in a customized way the host cells may no longer be fully capable of. Postnatal tissues have high concentrations of MSCs across multiple compartments/tissues and these MSCs exhibit a more robust secretome and more rapid cell division frequency yet with a lower rate of teratogenesis.

Types of Stem Cells

Totipotent Stem Cells

Also known as embryonic stem cells, totipotent cells can become extraembryonic (placental cells/tissue). “Totipotent” means that these cells can differentiate into any type of cell or tissue which would indicate vast potential. However, because of the risks of teratoma, this type of stem cell is unsuitable for therapeutics and using it is illegal in the United States.

Pluripotent Stem Cells

Pluripotent stem cells can differentiate into any of the cell types in a body. Pluripotent cells give rise to the endoderm, mesoderm, and ectoderm.

Multipotent Stem Cells

These cells give rise to many types of cells but are more limited than pluripotent cells. Multipotent stem cells are found in postnatal umbilical cord and placenta tissues, as well as in adult tissues. They serve as a reservoir of cells for growth and repair. Each type of multipotent stem cell gives rise to a limited range of cell types. These cells are more difficult to isolate for clinical use but are ethical. Examples of multipotent stem cells include hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSC).
