AT PROGENICS, WE USE THE UNIQUE, MODIFIED DOUBLE STEM CELL EXTRACTION PROCESSING TECHNIQUE DEVELOPED BY PROGENICS’ RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT TEAM.
DOUBLE STEM CELL EXTRACTION
Our fire-resistant storage facility is equipped with backup generators, in the event of a power failure. In addition, the storage facility and the temperature inside the freezers are monitored 24 hours daily by security, video surveillance and environmental monitoring and alarm systems.
In case of emergencies, backup liquid nitrogen freezers are available at our storage facility which can be used immediately to transfer the contents of a dysfunctional freezer.
We use Pall cord blood collection bags which have completed an extensive sterilization process (internally and externally). It is made safe and convenient cord blood collection for vaginal births and cesarean sections. The bag is FDA NDA approved and CE marked under the Medical Devices Directive for the collection of cord blood
At Progenics, we use Pall freezing bags which have two compartments. The cord blood stem cells can either be used for up to two transplants, or one compartment can be used for expansion, and the other for a direct transplant.
Progenics uses the unique, modified double stem cell extraction processing technique developed by Progenics’ Research & Development Team (Yang H et al., Transfusion (2011) 51;284-292 and Yang H et al., Transfusion (2015) 55:70-78).
This technique, allows us to obtain a significantly higher rate of TNC recovery.
