University of Virginia inventors develop inverted well plate technology to optimize adult stem cell growth for wound repair

Dr. Adam J. Katz and his collaborators at the University of Virginia are pioneers in adapting various techniques to create an entirely new way of culturing adipose stem cells: upside-down. By using a special inverted well plate they designed, the researchers suspending the cells in high concentration — about 50,000 cells per hanging droplet. “It’s not just the cells you have, but how you prepare and grow them that impacts the in vivo therapeutic effect,” said Dr. Adam J. Katz. Apparently biological activity and therapeutic potential is significantly improved by culturing the adipose stem cells in hanging droplets which allows them to form more potent three dimensional structures which exhibit some astonishing characteristics. This optimized adult adipose stem cell growth can be used for wound repair caused by diabetic ulcers and other diseases caused by poor blood circulation and blood flow, such as cardiac ischemia, which leads to heart attacks; and severe burns.

It is encouraging to see basic scientific research such as Dr. Katz is doing to unwravel the mechanisms of life and injury repair. This author stands in awe of the body’s own ability to heal itself and under reasonably normal conditions maintain good health using its own adult bone marrow stem cell systems. Christian Drapeau MSc, a visionary voice for the real world application of Adult Stem Cell Technology, and his team of researchers have discovered a more natural approach to increasing the number of adult stem cells without any laboratory test tubes or surgical intervention. Stemtech Health Sciences Inc., the world’s first stem cell nutrition company, formed by Drapeau to extract, encapsulate and distribute to the general public a patented 5:1 concentration of a blue green algae know as Aphanizomenon flos aqua for a reasonable cost. 1 gram of this concentrate has been clinically proven to cause the body to release 3-4 million adult stem cells into circulation naturally within an hour of consumption. It is a general scientific concensus that the more adult stem cells in circulation the better chance the body has of being in good health.
