Stem cells

The quality of the stem cell preparations thawed in the SAHARA-TSC has been tested in clinical studies. The vitality determination was carried out using Trypan blue dye and cultural procedures (CFU-GM). Compared to manual thawing processes in a water bath, a considerable improvement in hygiene conditions was achieved with the SAHARA-TSC. Towards the end of each thawing process, when the infrared sensor detects the free of ice state a visual and audible signal is output unless different filling volumes (60–120 ml), which led to consistent and high-quality preparations. The easy handling of the system was also highly rated.
