The Stroma Vascular Fraction (SVF) and Stem Cells

The stroma vascular fraction (SVF) is a cell population that resides within the connective tissue of the body. This cell population is made up of several cell types, including: adipocytes, fibroblasts, macrophages, and endothelial cells. The SVF is an important component of the body’s tissue repair and regeneration process. When tissue is damaged, the SVF…

Platelet Lysate (PL) Growth Medium for Cells

Platelet lysate (PL) is a liquid suspension containing a high concentration of platelets. It is prepared by breaking open platelets and is used as a source of growth factors for cells in tissue culture. PL has been used to promote the growth of a variety of cell types, including mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs), which are…

Wharton’s Jelly and Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found in many tissues throughout the body, including the bone marrow, adipose tissue, and even umbilical cord tissue. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into a variety of cell types, including osteoblasts, chondrocytes, myocytes, and adipocytes. MSCs can be extracted from…

Placenta vs Umbilical Cord and Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found in a variety of tissues, including the umbilical cord and placenta. While both the umbilical cord and placenta are rich sources of MSCs, there are a few key differences in how these cells are extracted from each tissue. The umbilical…

Growth in Cell Culture and Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found in many different tissues in the body, including the bone marrow, adipose tissue, and even umbilical cord tissue. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into a variety of cell types, including osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), and adipocytes (fat…

Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) Extraction From Umbilical Cord

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found in many tissues throughout the body, including the bone marrow, adipose tissue, and umbilical cord. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into a variety of cell types, including osteoblasts, chondrocytes, and adipocytes. In recent years, MSCs have been shown to…

How Does a Flow Cytometer Work?

A flow cytometer is a machine that is used to count and analyze cells. The cells are passed through a laser beam, and the light that is scattered by the cells is detected by sensors. The data that is collected by the sensors is used to identify the cells and to determine their size, shape,…

Bone Marrow Aspirate Risks Stem Cells

Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside some of your bones, such as your hip and thigh bones. It contains immature cells called hematopoietic or blood-forming cells. A bone marrow aspiration (BMA) is a procedure to remove a small amount of bone marrow from your body. This sample can be used for tests or for…

BMAC

What is bone marrow concentrate? Bone marrow concentrate (BMAC) is a type of regenerative therapy. It’s a concentration of cells and growth factors taken from your own bone marrow. These cells and growth factors can help repair and regenerate damaged tissues. BMAC is used to treat a variety of conditions, including: joint pain arthritis tendinitis…
