Stem Cell Laboratory


The Stem Cell Laboratory processes hematopoietic progenitor cells for transplantation.  Patients receiving transplants suffer from hematological or non-hematological malignancies, myelodysplastic syndromes, hematological congenital disorders, aplastic anemia, inborn errors of metabolism, or congenital immunodeficiencies.  The sources of the progenitor cells are bone marrow, mobilized peripheral blood or umbilical cord blood.  The donor can be autologous or allogeneic depending on the type of transplant.  Processing for transplantation includes removal or enrichment of specific cell populations, cryopreservation, and thawing progenitor cells for infusion.

The following procedures are performed by the Stem Cell Laboratory:

The Stem Cell Laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT).
