AXP® II System Maximises Mononucleated Cell Recovery to Increase Transplant/Treatment Success
Automated Stem Cell Processing System
Stem cell isolation is a critical step in cord blood banking. It affects the number of stem cells that can be harvested or recovered from the cord blood. Cell recovery rates are critical because a higher number of stem cells could enhance the success of the transplant or treatment. That is why we invested in the latest automated stem cell processing technology – AXP® II System to harvest maximum stem cells for improved transplant or treatment outcomes.
AXP® II versus other processing methods
A U.S. FDA-cleared device that is capable of recovering more than 97% of Viable CD34+ stem cell, higher than other available processing systems.³ This safe, sterile and automated cord blood processing system also helps us to ensure your baby’s cord blood is processed with highly precise, reliable, and state-of-the-art technology, hence eliminating any possible cross-contamination of the cord blood unit.
