Laboratory for SCT and Immunology

Our center is specially focused on haplo (=half) identical stem cell transplantation. This procedure offers the possibility for parents to serve as stem cell donors for their children. Complex purification of stem cell products is necessary in order to avoid severe graft rejection due to half compatibility of donor and recipient.

Manufacturing of our cell products is performed under GMP conditions by German Red Cross Donor Service Baden-Württemberg-Hessen (BSD) according to the German Medicine Act (German drug law, AMG). This is done in close cooperation with our laboratory and our physicians.

In order to realize the transplantation from autologous, allogeneic and especially haploidentical stem cell products we are performing several modern purification procedures using CliniMACS technology in special cleanrooms and in the context of the manufacturing authorization of BSD.

Being a delegated testing laboratory of BSD (Test activity according to §14 Paragraph 4 No. 4 AMG) our focus is on quality control of these stem cell preparations. In accordance with strict drug law regulations we determine cell amounts by flow cytometry.
