Biotechnology stem cells laboratory
Thanks to the modern laboratory, the company easily copes with any complex issues in the field of working with the patient’s stem cells. The laboratory is divided into several blocks, according to the tasks facing them.
The first block is the general deployment of employees. In this block, employees conduct office work.
The second block is a tambour room (gateway). It separates zones with different levels of sterility. Employees from the first block enter the airlock and change the clothes of the first clean zone to sterile sets of clothes for work in the third block. The sluice system is used for premises with increased requirements to the degree of purity of air from pollution.
The third block is the main one where all the work with the biomaterial is flowing. It can be divided into three departments A, B and C.
Department A is intended for analytical research. It contains all the instruments connected with the measurements. To carry out analyzes related to the identification and “certification” of stem cells, very accurate instruments are needed.
Such instruments are flow cytofluorimeters. These are the most accurate instruments from all that exist to work with cells. Thousands of cells per second individually pass through the laser beam, which allows not only to separate stem cells from ordinary cells, but also to evaluate their “healing potential”.
This equipment allows us to study with great accuracy each cell individually and to sort out qualitative cells from the rest.Also in this department, other analyzes of the condition and composition of cells are carried out, which allows successfully growing stem cells without loss of quality.
Department B – is a place where actions are taken to isolate and purify the cellular material. Thanks to certified centrifuge equipment, stem cells are isolated with high accuracy and quality.
Speaking about the department C – it should be noted that it is, perhaps, the most high-tech department. It is here that all actions with cells go. It is here that the most stringent requirements for working with cellular material and biological safety are observed.
The necessary equipment for working in sterile conditions with any stem or other cell types is represented by leading manufacturers from all over the world. Stem cells in a special sterile box are transplanted into vials with a nutrient medium, where they begin their multiplication. During the growth period, these vials are updated many times and as the cells grow, they are transplanted into new vials. Such operations are carried out repeatedly, until the number of cells reaches the therapeutic dose.
