Autologous orthopedic stem cell formulations are composed of a complex collection of cells and factors that promote tissue regeneration. The ability to separate concentrate, and fortify these stem cell formulations is essential for achieving the best possible outcomes. Automated bedside systems are often promoted for autologous stem cell treatment. These systems provide a simplified preparation of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow concentrates. When these systems are employed, rigid parameters and automation mean that there is little room to customize the final stem cell and PRP formulations.
In the Onsite Advanced Orthopedic Stem Cell Laboratory at iOBX®, we manually process your bone marrow and adipose tissue. Taking this approach allows us to customize our process for the needs of each individual patient. For example, we may need a concentrated cell formulation in a low volume for a small joint, tendon, or ligament.
