  1. 1. STEMCELLS21: WHO WE ARE
  2. 2. StemCells21 is a Biotech company based in Bangkok, Thailand. The company was established in 2008, founded by Mr. Paul Collier, with the first Regenerative Medicine facility & lab opening its doors in 2011. StemCells21 offers: • Premium Regenerative Medicine @ IntellliHealth+ • Allogenic Stem Cells Supply & Technology • Autologous Stem Cells in-house laboratory services • Product/Protocol R&D: Serum & Essentials STEMCELLS21: THE COMPANY
  3. 3. IntelliHealth+ centres were established to offer patients stem cell based treatment programs, in 5* modern facilities. When patients undergo a treatment program at IH+, an appropriate stem cell source is selected and a supportive therapy program is designed. Stem Cell Sources: Umbilical Cord, Peripheral Blood or Adipose. Supportive Therapies: Peptides/Growth factors, Bio-photon laser treatments, Oxygen therapies and Nutrition/Enzyme/Hormones.

  6. 6. STEMCELLS21: STEM CELLS What Are Stem Cells? Stem cells are biological cells that can an self renew to produce more stem cells and differentiate into specialised cell types.

  8. 8. STEMCELLS21: STEM CELLS How stem cells work These cells are capable of performing three important functions with unique abilities: - Plasticity: Potential to change into other cell types like nerve cells - Homing: To travel to the site of tissue damage or under stimulation - Engraftment: To unite with other tissues

  12. 12. Mesenchymal & CD34+ Cells: Fully characterised, early passage stem cells are available ready for use in cryo-storage. All products undergo extensive testing including characterisation studies. This gives detailed information on genetic stability, gene expression, and differentiation potential. STEMCELLS21: MSC & CD34+
  13. 13. Source: human umbilical cord-derived ▪Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stem cells that can differentiate into a number of cell types including osteoblasts, chondrocytes, myocytes, adipocytes, neurons, etc. ▪These can have immense applications in regenerative medicine. STEMCELLS21: MSC

  20. 20. STEMCELLS21: ADIPOSE SVF
  21. 21. How it Works: Our technology process yields SVF which is a functionally diverse population of cells that is believed to be synergistic and able to communicate with other cells in their local environment. Ultrasonic Cavitation Separation process is: • Clean/Safe – no animal products or enzymes • Efficient– complete time 30 - 40 minutes with cell counting • High number of SVF • Extra cellular matrix present which aids in the regenerative process • Can be applied to a variety of diseases STEMCELLS21: ADIPOSE SVF
  22. 22. STEMCELLS21: ADIPOSE SVF Prior to our process, the cell membrane's are clearly defined Contents of the Adipose cell begin to emulsify. Emulsifications of the fats and water content to occur. Homogenization of the Adipose tissue has occurred!
  23. 23. ▪Derived from Blood Vessels in adipose (fat) tissue ▪Capillaries are primary source (see inset below) ▪Same-day clinical procedure ▪Easy to harvest fat ▪High cell counts Blood vessels Adipose (fat) cells Capillaries The isolated SVF contains: ▪ Adult Stem Cells ▪ Endothelial Cells ▪ Fibroblast Cells ▪ Pericytes ▪ Red Blood Cells ▪ White Blood Cells … and much more STEMCELLS21: ADIPOSE SVF

  26. 26. Extracellular matrix (ECM) • Basement membrane (type 4 reticular collagen) • Interstitial matrix (Type 1 collagen) ECM regulates cell function and is a reservoir of growth factors. Triggering protease activity releases growth factors ECM controls growth, wound healing and fibrosis; is able to block the immune reaction of inflammation and scarring to allow replacement tissue to grow in the absence of scarring.
