Only authorized licensed staff can access the laboratory, being required to login with their unique user ID and password in order to process each client’s sample. Client blood remains in a sterile environment from the moment it is collected. Throughout processing and storage the stem cells are never exposed to the environment. You can be sure your stem cells are handled to the highest standard with every step of the process recorded and documented. Each set of sample data is logged in our system and available to clients.
