Clinical Grade Non-Transfusable Cord Blood CD34+ Stem/Progenitor Cells, Single Donor, Frozen-1 million/vial
CD34 is a glycosylated transmembrane protein and represents a well-established marker for human hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in peripheral blood, bone marrow, cord blood, and fetal liver. CD34+ cells are self-renewing, multipotent stem cells that give rise to all blood cells of the immune system through a process called hematopoiesis. As hematopoietic stem cells progress through hematopoiesis they generate the myeloid (monocytes, macrophages, granulocytes, megakaryocytes, dendritic cells, erythrocytes) and lymphoid (T cells, B cells, NK cells) lineages. The highly specialized cells that arise from hematopoietic stem cells work collaboratively in defending the body against infection and disease.
Cord blood CD34+ cells are positively selected using immunomagnetic anti-CD34 beads. All cell isolation components, including reagents, tubing sets, instruments, and buffers, are manufactured and controlled under an ISO 13485 certified quality system under FDA oversight. Cell culture procedures, including open manipulation of vials, final filling, and closure of finished products, are performed inside ISO 5 air quality processing chambers located within an FDA-registered cell manufacturing facility. Isolated primary cells are characterized by flow cytometry to ensure a highly pure and viable cell population.
Cells were obtained using Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved consent forms and protocols. All reagents and devices used to collect and separate the cells are certified clinical grade. This item is for research use only.
