Following extensive research and development, Biostage has evolved its technology to optimize the interaction of mesenchymal stem cells seeded on a biocompatible scaffold. Preclinical studies suggest that, once implanted, the scaffold seeded with the patient’s own cells signals the stem cell niche to guide the regeneration of a biological structure.
Cellframe technology may enable the first truly personalized approach to organ regeneration.
Cellframe technology employs a multistep process in which the patient’s own stem cells are taken from a simple adipose/fat tissue biopsy, expanded and banked, and then seeded onto a proprietary scaffold that mimics the natural dimensions of the organ being regenerated. After several days in a rotating bioreactor, the stem cell-containing scaffold is ready to be implanted. Cellframe technology is designed to deliver the necessary cues for triggering, guiding and modulating the regenerative process.
