Imagine if you could capture the vitality of your youth. Now you can, with the unique StemCure Tissue Banking Program. Today we offer you a unique chance to stop your body’s aging process by preserving your own DNA sample. This opportunity was considered impossible just a few short years ago. Now, a simple 15 minute skin biopsy procedure is all that’s needed to preserve your health and protect your future.
1. What is StemCure’s Tissue Bank and why we need it?
2. Our Technology.
3. Protective Measures and Safeguards.
Stunning scientific discoveries have opened the possibilities for us to preserve our unaltered youth and healthy genome almost indefinitely. To do this, we propose to our clients to allow us to isolate and cryopreserve a small piece of tissue from their body in our unique tissue bank via a simple skin biopsy procedure. (To find out more about “How StemCure Differs From Other Tissue Banks” see our FAQ page).
Our methods provide 100% assurance that the tissues we preserve will remain viable, healthy and young. We guarantee that these tissues will correspond to the age and physical status from the time when they were collected and can be preserved for many decades to come.
In that way we strive to accomplish mankind’s most important dream –
to stop the hands of time and reduce the effects of aging. We will bring to a standstill the genetic program that is encoded in our cells that cause us to age and grow older. What is unique about this procedure, from a biological perspective, is that even as a person continues to live longer and get older, at the same time, part of his body remains invariably young. This well-preserved critical piece of tissue contains all the vitally important genetic material that harnesses the potential for invigorating one’s health. It will play an essential role in the rehabilitation and rejuvenation of human beings in the future.
Recent studies have shown that certain parts of our skin are the most optimal material to be used for our program. For this purpose we utilize fibroblasts, the cells of the connective tissues located at the bottom side of our epidermis. These cells are safely protected by the upper layers of our skin from the penetration of solar radiation and other external factors that might cause undesirable and often devastating alterations to the cell chromosomes and human genes. In order to properly extract fibroblasts from our skin we have to perform a basic skin biopsy procedure. This is a fairly routine procedure that can be performed by any physician or most competent medical personnel.
If you decide to participate in our program, after you fill out all the necessary forms, StemCure will send to you the standard Tissue Collection Kit. This Kit contains detailed instructions for how your doctor should perform the biopsy procedure, as well as all the necessary components for the collection and transportation of a biopsy sample. (To review detailed instructions, visit the Agreements and Forms page ).
StemCure will immediately start processing your biopsy samples once they arrive by overnight shipment to one of our laboratory facilities. We perform this very elaborate procedure because we understand perfectly well that our ultimate goal is not just the preservation of your tissue samples, but rather their subsequent utilization for the
production of embryonic stem cells, which is the next stage of our program.
Before subjecting the samples of your tissue to freezing, we will use the skin tissue to initiate the growth of the cell culture. Qualified personnel in our centers perform this procedure. This is a fairly complicated and arduous process. But we have to go through this step in order to significantly increase the number of surviving cells after thawing.
After initial testing of the cell culture for viability and physiological activity, we will start its preparation for cyropreservation. We will treat your cell culture with a special blend of cryoprotective agents that will enable us to preserve the cell structure from the destructive action of the deep freezing. This happens because cryoprotective agents such as glycerol and DMSO maintain the concentration of the soluble compounds inside and outside of the cell membranes in the required and balanced manner. When these processes have been completed, we will allocate your tissues into 12 equal parts and place them into a special device that programs the velocity of the freezing within the required temperature settings necessary for proper crypreservation. Only in this way, after having successfully completed all of our testing procedures and processes, will your tissue samples finally be immersed in liquid nitrogen (–196°C) for long-term storage.
We appreciate the uniqueness of your “Preserved Youth Genome.” The importance of these tissues increases with each passing year. StemCure will take every conceivable precaution necessary to preserve your samples properly. Our policy measures are to store your viable cells in different physical locations. Six vials will be stored in one of our Tissue Bank facilities. The other six vials will be transported to another securely remote facility. In both situations, if the client so desires, the tissues can be used for the regeneration of embryonic stem cells in the future. Such precautionary steps are taken in order to protect both our company's interest and those of our clients from any and all unexpected situations such as power failures, fires, floods, etc. Once we have successfully performed your cryopreservation procedure, you will be notified by our company.
StemCure will do everything in its power to ensure that the “Youth Genome” of our clients is safely protected and will remain a viable source for their healthy disease-free future.
