Stem Cell Collection
The unit has apheresis machines which collect blood and separate the stem cells that are needed for transplant from most other blood products. The stem cells collected will regenerate your bone marrow.

Pheresis is a Greek word meaning separation. The growth factor injections which you may receive cause the number of stem cells to increase in your blood. The pheresis procedure collects these stem cells so that they can be stored for transplantation.
