Stem Cell Banking
Store Your Stem Cells
At the SC21 lab we provide access to new born and adult stem cell banking.
Stem cells are unspecialised cells that have the potential to multiply and grow into many different types of cells throughout the body, from bone to muscle to neuron and beyond. By extracting and freezing cells as young as possible from your own body, and banking them, you essentially safe guard your future.
When your health starts to decline or ageing becomes an issue, you have an answer.
If you start suffering from arthritis, for example, in the future your stored stem cells could be inserted into your joints so healthy cells will multiply and take over, theoretically eliminating your pain. This scenario could be looked at in many conditions.
Types of Stem Cells Banked
Human MSCs (hMSCs) are the non-haematopoietic, multipotent stem cells with the capacity to differentiate into mesodermal lineage such as osteocytes, adipocytes and chondrocytes as well ectodermal (neurocytes) and endodermal lineages (hepatocytes).
MSCs express cell surface markers like cluster of differentiation (CD)29, CD44, CD73, CD90, CD105 and lack the expression of CD14, CD34, CD45 and HLA (human leucocyte antigen)-DR.
hMSCs for the first time were reported in the bone marrow and till now they have been isolated from various tissues, including adipose tissue, amniotic fluid, endometrium, dental tissues, umbilical cord and Wharton’s jelly which harbours potential MSCs.
MSCs hold many therapeutic benefits which can be harnessed in future therapies.
Mesenchymal stem cells have been used across the world in a wide variety of trials which have collected very positive data. With increased understanding of cellular functions and cell-to-cell signalling, more powerful cell based therapies will be developed.
