Step 1

Stem cells are collected from voluntary donors.

Step 2

The stem cells are then frozen in nitrogen vapor, and stored in a cell bank before “entering production”.

Step 3

The production phase is divided into 4 phases:

  • thawing of cells
  • cell culture over a 21-day perio
  • purification of red blood cells
  • filling of packed red blood cell concentrates into transfusion bags

Step 4

Quality control is carried out according to health authority requirements in each country.

Step 5

The cRBC bags are then placed in storage.

Step 6

The bags are then ultimately administered to patients who need transfusions

Industrial scale-up of the RBC production process will open up a new industrial sector, with the creation of skilled jobs.
