Best Practices in Collection of Human Bone Marrow Aspirate for Pre-Clinical and Clinical Use

Bone marrow aspirate is one of the most valuable sources for stem and immune cells, yet the concentration of stem cells harvested from bone marrow donations has significantly decreased over time. This decrease is a direct result of a loss in specialized knowledge in the collection of stem cells from human bone marrow.

Mr. Darren Pelio, MHS, PA, Bone Marrow Aspiration Specialist, shares his technical expertise and over 17 years of experience when performing this complex procedure.

This white paper will discuss:

  • The collection methods geared toward obtaining the highest possible quality aspirate material
  • The importance of establishing a high value recallable donor database through trust and minimizing donor discomfort
  • How donor characteristics such as age, physical anatomy, and medical history, can help predict aspirate yield and quality
