MEDFORD, Mass., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Preservation of amniotic fluid stem cells is an innovative technology that recentlybecame available to expecting mothers in the United States with Biocell Center having launched its pioneering service here following its success in Europe. Today, the company announced
Innovative Medical Solutions will work with hospitals and private Ob/Gyn clinics to present to their patients an option to preserve amniotic fluid stem cells collected during routine second trimester amniocentesis. "With its highly successful track record in Europe, Biocell Center presents a great opportunity to collaborate and to bring cutting-edge technology to the U.S. and to the New York area," said John D'Angelis, President and CEO of Innovative Medical Solutions.
