"We are pleased to have been awarded this grant," commented Vartan Ghazarossian, PhD, President and CEO of StemCor Systems, Inc. "This SBIR award provides further validation of our scientific and clinical approach, to satisfy the unmet need to easily and effectively obtain marrow-derived cells. The grant will be used to broaden our capabilities regarding the harvest of bone marrow, as well as the processing of stem and progenitor cells it contains, for bone marrow transplantation. Additionally," he explained, "the MarrowMiner System has the potential to improve upon a growing number of therapeutic applications in the field of Regenerative Medicine including cardiovascular, neurologic, diabetic and orthopedic disorders."

About the MarrowMiner

The proprietary MarrowMiner System is designed to rapidly and easily harvest stem cell-rich bone marrow in a minimally-invasive manner, in the outpatient setting, and without general anesthesia. This is in contrast to the current practice of bone marrow aspiration through the insertion of a large gauge needle into multiple sites of the iliac crest of the hip, which usually requires general anesthesia, an operating room, and multiple clinical personnel, and results in marrow highly diluted with peripheral blood.
