...Provia's underlying mission - to make stem cell technology broadly available.
Littleton, MA (PRWEB) September 30, 2015
The proper collection, transport, processing, testing and preservation of stem cells is a crucial and significant part of the regenerative medicine value chain. Companies have provided stem cell banking (Biobanking) services from bone marrow and umbilical cord blood for over two decades. More recent discoveries in the past 10 years have identified additional sources of valuable stem cells such as dental stem cell cells, adipose-derived stem cells, etc. Tissues that have commonly been discarded as biological waste contain valuable tissue forming stem cells called mesenchymal stem cells, and have shown to generate growth and repair of bone, cartilage, tendon, nerve and heart tissue. Thousands of patients have been treated with stem cells and well over a million families have privately preserved stem cells for their families' own use.
Provia Laboratories(tm) offers Store-A-Tooth, a service for families to preserve the valuable and non-controversial stem cells found inside teeth. Through a partnership with a consortium out of Kazakhstan, Store-A-Tooth(tm) will be made available in Russia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgystan.
"The extended reach of Store-A-Tooth with partners has always been part of Provia's underlying mission - to make stem cell technology broadly available. We are excited to be partnering with a top notch team to bring Store-A-Tooth to this part of the world." says Howard Greenman, Chief Executive Officer, Provia Labs.
Provia continues to expand its capabilities, capacity and reach. Having recently launched a state of the art 10,000 square foot cGMP cell manufacturing facility, they are prepared to serve a fast growing market.
The terms and details of this agreement have yet to be disclosed.
