Aastrom Biosciences is a biotechnology company based in Michigan in the USA, which developed the Aastrom Replicell System bioreactor to process cells obtained from bone marrow aspiration. By means of a fully-automated progenitor cell selection and culture process, it produces a cell product with high doses of mesenchymal progenitor cells and endothelial cells for regenerative medicine. In collaboration with the Blood and Tissue Bank (BST), ITRT conducted initial trials using this bioreactor, which yielded very satisfactory results in bone fractures refractory to standard treatments.
