Standardized Technology to Operate an Adult Stem Cell Bank

All production stages are standardized, from the reception of adipose tissue to separation, cultivation and storage of stem cells. We ensure the stability of our stem cells through gene tests and other quality tests. Therefore, our stem cells retain their characteristics and cell conditions even after they have been stored for a long time until the time when they are needed. This is made possible by the special technologies applied to the standardized stem cell bank operation system of Biostar Stem Cell Technology Research Institute.

Blood and Genetic Tests

  • Hematological test – basic test for diagnosis and treatment
  • Immune Serum test – virus test, hormone, cancer mark test, test related with metabolic diseases
  • Blood test – hepatitis B test, hepatitis C test, AIDS test, syphilis test
  • Biochemical test – liver function, kidney function, protein, blood sugar, lipid
  • glycated hemoglobin test – assesses the average blood glucose concentration
  • HLY Typing – histocompatibility antigen test

Cell quality test

  • Sterility test – checks for contamination under cultivation conditions where bacteria and mycetes can grow
  • Mycoplasma test – rapidly detects living mycoplasma (a type of pathogenic microorganism, one of the smallest primordial cell) by measuring specific enzyme activity
  • Endotoxin test – checks for endotoxin to ensure the safety of the products. Endotoxin is a heat-resistant toxin, even the smallest amount of which demonstrates strong thermogenic activity

Stell cell separation, cultivation and storage

  • Stem cell separation – separate stem cells from human tissue
  • Stem cell cultivation – uses standardized cultivation technology capable of separating pure stem cells from a small amount of tissue and proliferating them several thousands times
  • Microscopic observation – observes cell growth during stem cell cultivation
