In this video, watch the fully automated AUTOSTEM pipeline in action! Our partners Fraunhofer IPT are credited with the creation of this video.
Take the virtual tour here: The AUTOSTEM platform concept was designed as a user-oriented, closed, automated system to provide an efficient pipeline for the delivery of large numbers of therapeutic cells (mesenchymal stromal cells or MSCs). The process starts with a bone marrow donation, taken from the hip bone of a donor using a novel[…]
