Fresh and Frozen Bone Marrow

AllCells are able to provide whole bone marrow aspirate and bone marrow cells collected from healthy individuals.  Up to 100ml of bone marrow can be collected per donor with sodium heparin used as a standard anti-coagulant (other anti-coagulants available as a custom request). (AllCells have compared and studied multiple aspiration techniques to develop an IRB approved protocol that minimises the amount of peripheral blood in the bone marrow.)  
  • Bone marrow is drawn into a 60cc syringe containing sodium heparin (80U/ml of bone marrow) from the posterior iliac crest, 25ml/site from a maximum of four sites per crest. 
  • Fresh whole bone marrow is routinely shipped from AllCells in the USA, to European countries. Typically fresh whole bone marrow is shipped at ambient temperature and in a transfer bag, providing a suitable environment for the cells during overseas shipping.  
  • As a custom request, AllCells can provide more than 100ml’s of bone marrow by utilising multiple donors with matched blood type, to allow for pooling of samples.  
  • Additionally, bone marrow smears are available and made fresh as a custom request.
Bone Marrow contains a higher concentration of haematopoietic stem/progenitor cells than found in peripheral blood.   In addition to whole bone marrow, AllCells can provide isolated mononuclear cells (MNC’s), CD34+ stem/progenitor cells, CD33+ myeloid cells, mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), and CD138+ plasma cells from bone marrow.   AllCells BM Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) are derived from BM-MNC, from the first culture passage and to optimise your research AllCells offers MSC Basal Media and MSC Stimulatory Supplement as well.  The bone marrow isolated cell types are available fresh or frozen.  However, depending on the specific isolated cell type needed from bone marrow will determine if they can ship fresh overseas.
