Adimarket, a subsidiary of Global Stem Cells Group, Inc., is preparing to launch Progenikine™, its new and approved SVF closed system kit using EmCyte technology, which is expected to be available to physicians July 2016. The Progenikine kit contains all of the elements necessary to process adipose tissue and obtain stromal vascular fraction (SVF) in a closed environment.
Adipose derived stem cells (ASCs) are used by physicians for a variety of indications. Most commonly, ASCs are isolated at the point of care from lipoaspirate (derived from liposuction) tissue as the stromal vascular fraction (SVF), harvested from the patient and immediately administered to the patient as an injection, or used to enrich fat grafts. Isolation of ASCs from adipose tissue is a relatively simple process performed routinely in cell biology laboratories, but isolation at the point of care for immediate clinical administration requires special methodology to prevent contamination, ensuring the integrity of the clinical procedure, and complying with regulatory requirements.
Developed in conjunction with Patrick Pennie, Emcyte CEO, and Maritza Novas, Director of Research and Development
for Global Stem Cells Group, Progenikine fuses elements from Emcyte systems with the Global Stem Cells Group SVF protocols. The kit can provide a low cost, rapid and simple alternative to traditional methods of isolating ASCs, particularly when smaller quantities are needed.
“We’re excited to launch the Progenikine kit, the newest product designed to help Global Stem Cells Group fulfill its mission to provide accessible products to our member clients,” says Benito Novas, CEO of Global Stem Cells Group. “These are the milestones that bring us closer to ensuring that more patients will be able to gain access to stem cell therapies.”

Fort Myers, Florida-based EmCyte Corporation is a leader in autologous cellular biologics with the GenesisCS Component Concentrating Systems. These systems provide patients with the best opportunity for rapid recovery and provide practitioners with the most advanced clinical point of care experience. EmCyte systems are developed to meet every clinical requirement, giving the physician better clinical choices. EmCyte devices have been independently reviewed and show to produce buffycoat concentrations of 6x to greater than 10x baseline in 7mLs, with yields ranging from 70 percent to greater than 90 percent.
EmCyte technology allows for the safe extraction of concentrated platelets and other regenerative cell types from the patient’s own blood. These cells are then re-suspended in a small volume of the patient’s blood plasma and then applied to the treatment site.
