Global Biomedikal is the new Turkish distributor of Arteriocyte products

 Global Biomedikal, one of the top distributors of regenerative medical products in Turkey, has announced that it has entered into an agreement to become the local distributor for Arteriocyte, a leading clinical stage biotechnology company, whose products include platelet rich plasma (PRP) kits. The Turkish distributor agreed to complete half a million in sales for the first year of distribution.

Mr. Semih Soylu from Global Biomedikal invited the Global OrthoBiologic team together with Dr. Dzihan Abazovic to conduct medical trainings in Liv Hospital, Turkey. The training was very successful and impressive. The introduction of the innovative Magellan Technology and the proprietary BMAC with the bone marrow aspiration cannula was the main topic of the presentation. The audience in the operating room was quite impressed by Dr. Abazovic and his knowledge of the procedures.

The GOB Team is also pleased to announce that after a successful meeting with Professor Erdal Karaoz, he is now part of our scientific board.

Professor Erdal Karaoz is the Managing Director of Regenerative Medicine Research & Manufacturing Center at LivMedCell. Professor Karaoz received his Masters degree from Dicle University in Histology-Embryology in 1989 and his PhD from Gazi University in Histology-Embryology in 1994. He became an Associate Professor at Suleyman Demirel University in 1996 and a Professor at Suleyman Demirel University in 2002. From 2003 to 2014, he was the Founding Director of Stem Cell and Gene Therapies Research and Application at Kocaeli University. During that same time, he was also the Founding Chairman of the Stem Cell Division at the Institute COD Health Sciences. Professor Karaoz taught at Joslin Diabetes Center of Harvard Medical School in 2005.

Professor Karaoz is the author of over 100 national and international articles and 4 books. He is the recipient of 36 awards. He is a member of the Turkish Hematology Association; European Association for Cancer Research; International Cellular Medicine Society; Organ, Tissue, and Cell Transplantation Society; and Stem Cell and Cell Therapy Association, among others.

On the last day of visit, our team had a presentation in front of Dr. Ahmet Murat Bulbul from the Istanbul Medipol University. He was extremely impressed by the BMAC and he has invited us for training in May.

THE VIVOSTAT® SYSTEM

The uniqueness of the Vivostat® system is a novel patented biotechnological process that enables reliable and reproducible preparation of autologous Fibrin Sealant or Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF®) without using cryoprecipitation and without the need for a separate thrombin component.

THE FULLY AUTOMATED VIVOSTAT® SYSTEM CONSISTS OF THREE COMPONENTS:

  • The Processor Unit is a non-sterile, reusable, fully automated device that controls the biochemical process.
  • The Processor Unit is used to process the patient’s blood and prepare the Vivostat® Fibrin Sealant or Vivostat PRF® solution.
Vivostat Processor Product
  • The Processor Unit is operated by a single button and a display keeps the nurse informed of the remaining process time and status at all times. No specific installation is required and the large wheelbase makes moving it easy.
  • The Processor Unit can be located in any room or corridor in the operating department. It is most often placed centrally between the operating theatres. This way one Processor Unit can supply a number of operating theatres.
  • In approx.  25 min a concentrated fibrin sealant or PRF® solution is prepared from the patient’s whole blood.
  • The Applicator Unit is a non-sterile, reusable, fully automated device that controls the delivery of the Vivostat® Fibrin Sealant or Vivostat PRF®.
Vivostat Processor Product
  • The large display and integrated microprocessor automatically primes the Spraypen® and informs the surgeon of the remaining volume of fibrin sealant/PRF® throughout the entire process.
  • Different spray modes can be selected depending on the actual procedure or area to be covered. Like the Processor Unit it has a large wheelbase and can easily be moved if required.
  • The disposable set comprises of two parts: A Preparation Kit used to prepare the fibrin sealant or PRF® solution before surgery, and an Application Kit used to activate and apply the fibrin sealant/PRF® solution.

 

  • Preparation Kit
    The Preparation Kit contains the specially designed Preparation Unit – a sterile disposable device in which the patient’s blood is collected, the biochemical process carried out, and the fibrin sealant or PRF® solution harvested.

 

  • The Application Kit
    The Application Kit contains the Spraypen®1 and all other items required to prepare the system for the delivery of the fibrin sealant or PRF® solution. The Spraypen® is a sterile, disposable, hand held device which delivers the fibrin sealant or PRF® solution to the tissue. The revolutionary and patented design offers the surgeon unparalleled freedom in controlling the application unlike any other product on the market today.

 

1Besides the Spraypen®, the Vivostat® system offers different types of applicators, e.g. the Endoscopic Applicator. For a full list of application devices click here

Three easy steps to prepare Vivostat® Fibrin Sealant or Vivostat PRF®

1. Draw blood from the Patient

Fibrin Prep With Blood Inside

At the time of surgery or up to 24 hours before1, citrate (supplied with the kit) is added to the Preparation Unit. 120 ml of the patient’s own blood is then drawn into the same unit.

2. Process the patient’s blood

Vivostat Processor 800

The Preparation Unit is placed in the Processor Unit. At the touch of a button the process starts; after approx. 25 minutes, an autologous fibrin or PRF® solution is ready for use. No thrombin or bovine components are added to the blood at any time.

3. Load the Applicator Unit and spray

Vivostat Display Applicator

The Fibrin or PRF® solution is easily loaded into the Applicator Unit and applied to the surgical site using one of the unique application devices (e.g. the Spraypen). 1This depends on the type of kit being used. Always consult the “Instructions for Use” supplied with the kit to determine the correct preparation.

The following video illustrates how to prepare and apply autologous fibrin sealant.
