Peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) Collection and Cryopreservation

Features

Peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) Collection and Cryopreservation

  • PBSCs are collected by leukapheresis from autologous or allogeneic donors.
  • PBSCs are frozen by computer-controlled cryopreservation for long-term storage with minimal damage to the cells.
  • PBSCs are used for autologous or allogeneic PBSC transplantation.

 

Procedure

The donors are administered drugs to stimulate the migration of progenitor cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood. Procurement of these cells is achieved by leukapheresis. These harvested cells are processed and cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen for future use.

 

Notification

  • In general, apheresis is a relatively safe procedure.
  • The most common complication caused by citrate-induced hypocalcemia is easily prevented or relieved by calcium supplementation.

 

Estimated Cost

  • The procedure cost:

PBSC Collection:63,882 NTD per person (3 collection cycles) .

PBSC Cryopreservation:67,908 NTD per person (Storage 1-3 month)

  • Prices are subject to change without prior notice, and need to pay in accordance with the actual medical expenses.
