BMAC vs SVF
BMAC vs SVF COMPARISON STATISTICS:
Adipose tissue contains a large number of multipotent cells, an essential prerequisite for stem-cell-based therapies. It has been described that stem and progenitor cells in the uncultured stroma-vascular fraction (SVF) from adipose tissue usually amount to up to 3% of the whole cells, and this is 2,500-fold more than the frequency of stem cells in bone marrow . Others have also described that adipose tissue provides large numbers of stem cells compared to bone marrow. A bone marrow transplant contains approximately 6 × 106 (6,000,000) nucleated cells per mL , of which only 0.001–0.01% (600-6000) are stem cells . In comparison, the number of SVF cells that can be isolated from subcutaneous liposuction aspirates is approximately 0.5–2.0 × 106 cells per gram of adipose tissue [22, 24–27], whereby the percentages of stem cells range from 1 to 10% [26, 28, 29], most likely depending on the donor and tissue harvesting site. Therefore, approximately 0.5 × 104 (5,000) to 2 × 105 (200,000) stem cells can be isolated per gram of adipose tissue, varying among patients.
