Ras Al Khaimah, UAE (PRWEB) January 07, 2015 -- Private equity and international research firm, Grace Century, recently announced that its bio-banking project, Provia Laboratories, LLC, had record year in 2014 for Store-A-Tooth™ - its cryogenic storage service for dental stem cells. Provia reported a 20% year over year increase of families storing the stem cells found in their children’s baby teeth, wisdom teeth, or teeth extracted for orthodontic purposes.
As research continues to make groundbreaking advances for potential therapies using mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, families are utilizing Provia’s services in anticipation of future uses. The company’s ability to expand the cells and test every sample for stem cell volume, has ensured an ample supply of useable cells, which continued to set Provia apart from its competitors.
"The company (Provia) believed from the very start that that it was critical to educate both the dental professionals as well as the consumer,” Scott Wolf, CEO of Grace Century commented. “This commitment has, in our opinion, made the Provia and the Store-A-Tooth™ brand, the unrivaled leader in this new industry.”
“With 2013 and 2014 being a proof of concept in their marketing strategy, Provia now has sufficient resource to service most of the U.S. and enter Europe in the first quarter with already signed strategic partners. This is a turn-key alliance allowing for fast market penetration,” Wolf added.
“Provia has built an extraordinary team which has focused on both quality and education. The investments we’ve made in building a high-quality platform and working with the dental community to educate families of the importance of these stem cells has paid off,” according to Howard Greenman, Provia Laboratories’ CEO. “The pace in which families enroll with Store-A-Tooth keeps accelerating – confirmation that we have the right strategy,” he added. “Working closely with the Grace Century team on issues related to international expansion, marketing strategy, strategic financing, and client services, has been instrumental to our success.”
”As research on the use of stem cells continues to accelerate, we believe that 2015 will be a remarkable year for Provia,” Wolf concluded.
