Texas A and M Health Science Center MSC Distribution

The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Scott & White has received a grant funded by the NIH to provide well-characterized human adult stem cells, rat stem cells, and mouse stem cells to academic researchers worldwide upon request. The adult stem cells are the plastic adherent cells from bone marrow referred to as colony forming units-fibroblastic, mesenchymal stem cells or multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs). The cells are isolated, expanded and extensively characterized in our own laboratories. We provide a detailed protocol for expansion of the cells. We also provide a Product Specification Sheet on each lot of cells summarizing the results of the characterization testing carried out on the frozen cells, including proliferation rates, data on colony forming units, bi-lineage and tri-lineage differentiation, and cell surface epitopes. HUMAN ADULT STEM CELLS Human adult stem cells are obtained from the bone marrow of normal, healthy donors pre-screened for infectious diseases under an IRB approved protocol with Informed Consent. The human MSCs are distributed in a single vial, containing 750,000 to 1,000,000 MSCs frozen at Passage 1 or 2. RAT ADULT STEM CELLS The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Scott & White also supplies samples of adult Lewis rat MSCs to academic researchers. Samples of these cells are provided as a single vial containing approximately 300,000 to 500,000 frozen cells. MOUSE ADULT STEM CELLS The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Scott & White also supplies samples of adult C57Bl/6J mouse mMSCs to academic researchers. Samples of these cells are provided as a single vial containing approximately 300,000 to 500,000 cells. Individuals interested in obtaining cell samples must first complete and return two signed originals of a Texas A&M Health Science Center Materials Transfer Agreement. There is a handling charge of $150USD (human), $100USD (mouse/rat), for the vial of stem cells. The charge can be waived in hardship situations.
