Q. Where does cell cultivation happen?
A. We manage cultivation and cell storage at our own specialized Cell Processing Center.
At CellBank we have a specialized Cell Processing Center (CPC) where we carefully cultivate and store cells for regenerative treatment at clinics across the country. A facility like this is absolutely essential for our goal of making regenerative medicine safe and accessible.
Our CPC is fully accredited by the MHLW and operates 24 hours a day with the highest standards of sanitation and hygiene. When our Cultivation Specialists head into the cultivation room they must first wash their hands at the entrance of the facility, and after changing into two sets of sterile clothing they must pass through a sterile hallway to the center of the CPC to prevent any potential outside contamination. It’s a very complicated system.
We also provide clinics with total support to make sure regenerative treatments are available to anyone, anywhere. In 2020 we helped 14 clinics start their journeys in regenerative medicine.
