Bone Marrow Aspiration & Bone Harvesting Systems

Maximize Cell Yield & Percutaneous Bone Graft Harvesting

The Marrow Cellution™ System maximizes stem and progenitor cell recovery and minimizes peripheral blood contamination. Thus, it prevents the subsequent need for additional manipulation procedures such as centrifugation and/or chemical separation which usually require oversight by national regulatory authorities.

Marrow Cellution™ harvests high quality percutaneous bone graft dowels in the same surgical procedure via the same access site, significantly reducing the need for more invasive harvesting procedures that burden the patient and health care provider with more expensive, time intensive, traumatic techniques that increase post-operative pain and morbidity, pharmacologic demand and length of hospitalization.

Overcome Limitations

The regenerative qualities of bone marrow have been used for decades and are considered the gold standard for stem cell harvesting. However, after the first 1-2 mL of bone marrow aspirate from a traditional needle, the number of total nucleated cells (TNC) in the aspirate drops dramatically due to the lower viscosity of blood and the design of the needle, which operates most optimally for small biopsy volume. After aspirating the first 1-2 mL of bone marrow, peripheral blood will preferentially fill the vacated space, limiting the additional harvest of key stem and progenitor cells.

The Marrow Cellution™ Bone Marrow Aspiration System overcomes this issue. It allows the user to aspirate in a measured and controlled manner over a large geography inside the marrow space, while restricting peripheral blood infiltration.

In addition, the Marrow Cellution™ Bone Marrow Aspiration- & Autologous Bone Harvesting System (MC-RAN-8C) allows physicians to combine high quality bone marrow aspirate and percutaneously harvested cancellous bone autograft.

Functional design

The Marrow Cellution™ System includes two unique features:

  • a closed needle tip to prevent aspiration of excess blood from the entry channel, and
  • a handle with threaded guide for controlled movement of the aspiration cannula within the marrow space.
Marrow Cellution Autologous Bone Graft Harvesting

The MC-RAN-8C Marrow Cellution™ System provides the additional benefit to percutaneously harvest bone graft in the same minimally invasive procedure.

The ability to harvest bone graft percutaneously after the collection of high quality bone marrow, reduces donor site morbidity associated with standard harvesting techniques.

In most countries, the ability to harvest bone graft allows the surgeon to be eligible for additional Diagnostic Related Group (DRG) compensation for autologous bone harvesting and transplantation.

This is potentially a giant step in bone marrow processing. This needle will usher in a new age in bone marrow aspiration.

My patients outcomes have improved greatly and quicker since I started using the Marrow Cellution bone marrow needle.

I am always suspicious that when we centrifuge bone marrow aspirate we might be throwing away significant aspects of the regenerative potential of biologic.

Dr. David Harrell, Ph.D.

For the same patient and procedure, the measured number of progenitor cells per cc in the aspirate alone was comparable to the centrifugation concentrate protocol.

Hands down, the best method is the new Marrow Cellution needle. It’s a game changer. Far easier to use, only one insertion point through the PSIS (rather than multiple entry sites through the ilium), and a MUCH better stem cell yield than the traditional Jamshidi needle approach.
