Preservation of stem cells from adipose tissue

Adipose stem cells (ADSCs) are mesenchymal stem cells, i.e. multipotent cells that can generate many different cell types – from adipose tissue to cartilage, including bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, blood vessels, the nervous system and more.

They can be isolated from the so-called stromal vascular fraction (SVF) and then multiplied in a clean room. Cell expansion makes it possible to produce large quantities of stem cells, for clinical applications, even from small samples of adipose tissue.

Adipose tissue is the main source of mesenchymal stem cells because it contains a high concentration of them and therefore avoids the removal of large quantities of fat (20 cc of fat is enough to obtain, after expansion, the necessary quantity of cells for a treatment).

Why store ADSCs?

Stem cells from adipose tissue can generate different types of tissues and are considered to be the ideal cells for various clinical applications.

Their use is safe and effective. This is demonstrated by numerous preclinical and clinical studies in which ADSCs have been used: breast reconstruction, nerve regeneration following trauma to the spinal cord, treatments against skin aging and hair loss, advanced orthopedic surgery, reduction of scars, etc.

What to store?

The sample to be sent to the Bioscience Institute for the preservation of adipose tissue stem cells consists of at least 20 ml of lipoaspirate.

Bioscience Institute activates the procedure for the collection and transport of the sample by courier. Once in the laboratories, the lipoaspirate is treated according to standardized operating procedures for the extraction, culture, and cryopreservation of ADSCs.

Guarantees offered

Bioscience Institute guarantees quality, solidity, reliability, and transparency. It has chosen to comply with the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standard and to use all the methods and controls necessary to ensure maximum safety of its business through compliance with GLP (Good Laboratory Practice), ISO certifications (UNI EN ISO 14644 – 1/2/3/5 and UNI EN ISO 14698 – 1-2) and LBM (Laboratory Biosafety Manual WHO FDA).

Quarantine is a mandatory biosafety requirement by law (Legislative Decree No. 16 of 2010). Stem cells intended for storage are kept in a temporary storage container until the analyses required by current legislation have given a negative result. Only at the end of this period are they transferred to the final storage container.

Contract and costs

Bioscience Institute, as the owner of the cell factory, are directly responsible for the work as direct manager of the laboratories where the ADSCs are physically stored. It proposes a direct cryopreservation contract which allows you to have a single point of contact.

Costs vary depending on the service requested. In any case, they include the first 3 years of ADSC cryopreservation, at the end of which the contract can be extended for another 3 years, upon request and payment according to the price list.
