Frozen stem cells for future use
We are constantly searching for new methods that allow for a broader and more effective medical application of existing cells for future treatments.
In case you contract a disease and have to be treated, there are chances that it will impact your immune system and overall health. Finding new ways to store stem cells could mean your treatments can be designed specifically for you.
An overall smarter way to age
Embryonic stem cells are among the body’s most flexible cells. They can turn into cells that make up organs, blood, nerves and bone. After birth, these cells exist in our bodies as adult stem cells and have a more limited range of options, usually restricted to the tissue in which they reside.
Cells and the DNA within them accumulate injuries as we age and are therefore less able to carry out certain functions such as correcting damage to DNA, generating new cells or generating energy. That accumulated damage to the DNA in our adult stem cells makes them less effective in stem cell treatments and transplants. That is why we have to make the most of our cells before they age.
The big promise of tiny cells
For any cell therapy to be successful, the methods of isolating, growing and expanding cell cultures must be perfected. That means we must be able to produce millions upon millions of homogenous, long-lived cells that are free from contamination with unwanted viral, bacterial and chemical agents. Doing that becomes easier when we have access to the right cells, because the success of tissue generation varies from organ to organ. If we can discover the genes and proteins involved in every step of tissue and organ formation, it may be possible to manufacture more precise treatments and even the necessary body parts.
Things we didn't think were possible five years ago can today be done routinely in the lab. In the long term, it would be ideal to supply enough stem cells to replace tissue and organs for every patient who needed one.
Transforming traditional medicine
Our consulting services cover different aspects of stem cell cryopreservation:
- continuous development of new freezing / storage methods (including methods for organoid preservation)
- strengthen and improve existing methods for cell freezing
- explore areas of innovation in cryobiology and the creation and commercialisation of freezing kits
