HemaCare Memory B Cells Recall Their Primary Function

Jan 8, 2019 9:59:00 AM / by Nancy Andon, MSc posted in Cryopreservation, Immunotherapy


Global biotechnology company Immunospot cites using B cells isolated from HemaCare-sourced peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) [1] for their studies on post-cryopreservation functionality.

Expectations are high that emerging field of cell therapy will be able to deliver breakthrough treatments or cures for many diseases, including cancer. One of the most powerful facets of this new medical field is the concept of immunotherapy--using the body’s own immune cells to specifically target disease. Immune cell function is at the heart of this concept, so keeping immune cells fully operational is crucially important. In this recent study published in the journal Cells, biopharmaceutical scientists aim to investigate B cell functionality following cryopreservation.

Cell Cryopreservation: Key to Optimal Cell Therapy Development and Application

Jan 4, 2018 10:35:00 AM / by Stacy Matthews Branch, DVM, PhD posted in Cell Therapy, Cryopreservation


Cryopreservation of therapeutic cells allows the long-term storage of functional cells and prevents degradative processes. Fresh cells are also used for cellular therapy approaches; however, there are many circumstances that make the availability of cryopreserved cells a must for repeated and on-hand use of cells. Cell cryopreservation provides a reliable stock of cells, which reduces the variability of cell therapy product. This translates to a more standardized product that can be used on a larger scale and without constraints on optimal availability for clinical use.
