The company looks to develop methods of cryopreservation through means such as stem cell storage, cell and gene therapy, bio banking, and stem cell collection. The service that Acorn Biolabs offers is to freeze a patient's cells for the purpose of fighting diseases in the future.
The company is able to transform any cell into a stem cell, preserve the cells in order to provide personal regenerative medicines, and is able to do so through the collection of a few hairs. The process includes reprogramming adult cells into stem cells. They are able to grow tissues, and 3D print organs. However, freezing the cells allows the company to use them for a specific use case in the future.
Acorn Biolabs has held over one-thousand clinical trials and has sixty-thousand patients enrolled with the goal of tackling diseases like Alzheimer's or diabetes, healing injuries anywhere in the body, regrowing skin, repairing sight, providing 3D printed implant organs, and more.
