The department comprise an allogeneic bone bank receiving bone tissue from patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery in hospitals in the Sjælland region. Additionally, it provides a highly specialised cleanroom class B, where cell products are being prepared for patients’ use. Currently, the department has established a method for cultivating mesenchymal stem cells in the purpose of building an allogeneic stem cell bank for use in clinical studies. The department performs various flow cytometric analyses, including analyses for the characterisation of hematopoietic and mesenchymal stem cells. Specifications for all starting materials, intermediate and finished products in the quality system and also, in the blood bank IT system ensure correct labelling and full traceability of all materials and products.
