Cryopreserving a small piece of skin tissue today can significantly change your life in the future. Remember, the sooner you preserve your tissue, the younger you are, the higher the chance for success!
4 steps to save your tissue sample:
What is the advantage of preserving one’s cells today?
What is Cryopreservation?
Cryopreservation is a process where cells, whole tissues, or any other substances susceptible to damage caused by chemical reactivity or the passage of time are preserved by cooling to ultra-cold sub-zero temperatures. At low enough temperatures, any enzymatic or chemical activity (including the aging process in cells) which might cause damage to the material in question is effectively stopped.
How does StemCure acquire and preserve the cells?
To preserve their cells, our clients must go through a simple, painless biopsy procedure in which a small sample of skin tissue will be recovered. This sample will be safety tested, deep-frozen in a liquid nitrogen freezer and then maintained at a temperature of approximately –170º C (-274º F). At this temperature, viability and metabolic characteristics – the biological “age” of the cryopreserved tissue sample – will be stable for decades, waiting for re-thawing for therapeutic use as soon as such opportunity arises.
StemCure’s future plans.
StemCure’s long term plans anticipate the future commercialization of the development of stem cells from cryogenically (ultra-cold) stored human tissue. The creation of donor specific stem cells from skin fibroblast cells, although already a well established laboratory procedure, has not yet been safety tested or validated for human clinical use (in worldwide and in the US). Therefore, as a licensed Tissue Bank, StemCure, Inc.’s activities are limited to collection, processing, and long-term storage of skin tissue. StemCure, Inc.’s possession of a New York State license for such collection and long-term storage does not indicate approval or endorsement of possible future uses or future suitability of skin tissue-derived cells.
