Vericel is a biotechnology company that is developing and manufacturing autologous cell-based therapies for the treatment of diseases and health conditions.

Vericel is committed to improving the lives of patients who are suffering from serious conditions by developing and manufacturing innovative cell therapies and specialty biologics.

Vericel uses a proprietary cell-processing technology to expand naturally occurring populations of cells derived from the patient’s own tissue. Specific to the type of therapy needed, a small sample of tissue is taken from the patient. The sample is then sent to Vericel's laboratory in Cambridge Massachusetts for cellular expansion. Rigorous testing ensures the quality and viability of cells before they are delivered back to healthcare professionals. These cells, in conjunction with rehabilitation regimes, have demonstrated the ability to restore function to patients with serious medical conditions.
