|26-6-2012 - SituGen presents its novel patent pending disposable device for Cord Blood collection
||My mood while writing this blog:|
problem of the existing method of Cord Blood collection is the relatively slow process, resulting in Cord Blood quickly
coagulating and therefore be fully extracted.
is a unique device
for Stem Cells collection, its User-Interface design optimizes the
extraction of Stem Cells. This is a significant breakthrough as Stem
Cells are widely tested in Clinical Trials for treating Alzheimer's disease,
Parkinson's disease, Strokes, Muscular Dystrophy, Paralysis, Cerebral Palsy,
Diabetes Mellitus, heart & lung diseases and others.
belongs to the fascinating, fast growing field of Regeneration Medicine based
on using Cord Blood Stem Cells – the next-big-thing. The limited volume of
blood collected from the Umbilical cord substantially limits the ability to
fully exploit its potential. Currently the average volume of blood collected
restricts the therapeutic use of cord blood stem cells to patients weighing an average
of only 77Lbs. which eliminates the majority of adult patients. SituGen
enhances Cord Blood collections over 81% more Stem Cells, making therapeutic
use of cord blood stem cells available for Adults.
is coming to be the new Golden-Rule of Cord Blood Stem Cells collection,
providing richer units of Stem Cells for use in Hematology and in Regenerative
solution is a disposable comprehensive all-inclusive kit for cord blood stem
cells collection. It is a needle free "open" collection system in a complete Closed & Sterile environment.
SituGen's kit includes the collection device and all the peripheral
accessories 2 clamps ruler scissors, a syringe with chlorhexidine solution,
preps for cleaning the Umbilical cord and blood collection bags. The three stages of collection are:
the cord into the device.
the Cord Blood in blood bags.
is active in R&D in the fields of Stem Cells, Cord Blood and Placenta –
Umbilicus Coagulation. The company was founded around its recent development of
the novel efficient and low cost SituGen device for a maximum-volume
extraction of umbilical cord blood for the purpose of Stem Cells harvesting. SituGen's
R&D team has been currently running other projects which focus on further
study of Cord Blood coagulation within the Placenta/Umbilicus system.
