Transplant Support You Can Trust
Vitalant Cell Therapy lab provides hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs), which are the precursors to red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
Our all-inclusive bio cell therapy service gives clinical teams continuity of providers while offering peace of mind: patients’ or their donors’ cells are treated with care and respect through every stage in their treatment process. The Vitalant cellular therapy lab is an FDA-registered tissue bank.
- Vitalant handles the processing, cryopreservation and storage for both autologous transplants (patients being infused with their own HPCs) and allogeneic transplants (when patients require HPCs from someone else) following collection, and coordinates the product transport and delivery when the patient is ready to be infused with the cells.
- For allogeneic transplants, Vitalant HLA laboratories perform HLA (human leukocyte antigen) testing on relatives or on unrelated donors who are registered through the National Marrow Donor/Be The Match Program.®
- In some markets, Vitalant provides HPC collections support for both autologous and allogeneic transplants.
