Laboratory Services

The stem cell laboratory carries out the analysis, processing and storage of cells collected from bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cells intended for autologous or allogeneic transplant.

The list of processes performed includes:

  • Peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) harvest, processing and storage (HPC-A)

  • Bone marrow harvest (BMH), processing and storage (HPC-M)

  • Preparation of T cell therapeutic (TC-T) aliquots, formerly called donor lymphocyte infusions (DLI)

  • Flow cytometry - immunophenotyping for CD34 and lymphocyte subsets CD3, CD4, CD8 and CD19

  • Manipulations that can be arranged include:​

    • Reduction of product volume

    • Depletion of red blood cells

    • Concentration of mononuclear cells

Products are cryopreserved in vacuum-packed double bags with 8-10% DMSO cryoprotectant using passive freeze method in a -80°C freezer.

 

Reference sample from cryopreserved cells are frozen and stored in cryovials for further testing if required.

Products are stored in vapour phase liquid nitrogen vessels, and are monitored (24/7) to ensure maintenance of temperatures between the range of -140 to -190°C
