StemCor receives CE Mark for stem cell harvesting device

StemCor Systems : 11 September, 2008  (New Product)
StemCor Systems has received the CE Mark for its MarrowMiner System, which is a minimally invasive device used to harvest adult stem cells from the ilium (pelvis), and represents next-generation technology for use in bone marrow transplants.
The system accelerates bone healing in spinal fusions and other orthopaedic procedures, and an expanding array of clinical applications utilizing bone marrow-derived cells.

'We are excited that this regulatory authorisation gives us the ability to commercialise StemCor Systems' technology in the European Union. The use of adult-derived stems cells is expanding rapidly, especially in spine fusion and other orthopedic procedures. We are pleased to be able to offer this novel device to physicians outside of the US, whereby bone marrow can be harvested in a more facile and relatively atraumatic way compared to traditional methods,' said Vartan Ghazarossian, PhD, president and chief executive officer of StemCor Systems.
