Mayo Clinic to open stem cell laboratory in summer 2014

Mayo Clinic in Arizona which has one of the most active bone marrow transplant programs in United States, recently announced the opening of its own stem cell laboratory in the next summer. Initially, the laboratory will be dedicated to storing and processing stem cells for bone marrow transplants at Mayo Clinic Hospital and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Mayo Clinic is a regional referral center and performs more than 200 adult stem cell transplants each year and approximately 30 pediatric transplants with Phoenix Children’s. The program is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy and the National Bone Marrow Donor Program.
The new 6,200-square-foot lab will be located on the Phoenix campus of Mayo Clinic in Arizona. According to Mayo Clinic physicians, the new lab will help increase capacity, improve turnaround times for processing and provide the potential for research-related activities including regenerative medicine.
