What if we told you that babies are not the only ones with stem cells and that this powerful cell type also exists in adults? This article will help you identify various stem cell sources, evaluate stem cell usefulness, explore harvesting and storage methods, and illustrate how they could be used in the future.
The hair follicle is valuable source of cells which can be used in regenerative medicine like the creation of 3D tissue grafts for wound healing, rejuvenating aged skin, or creating neurons. The therapeutic potential is becoming incrementally clear to researchers. Learn more about why we bank the hair follicle here.
Cell based therapies can leverage two types of cell sources: allogeneic, using donor cells and autologous, using a patient’s own cells. Learn more about each in this blog.
Biobanking is quickly becoming a popular way to preserve cells and allows individuals to leverage them for treating diseases and regenerative procedures.
Everything you need to know about Acorn Biolabs, from how it works, why we bank the hair follicle, and the best time to get banked.
