Cell therapy
Cell therapy

Since 2004, the Institute of Biophysics and Cell Engineering of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus has been conducting systemic studies of stem cells. The main areas of research: intercellular interactions during the proliferation and differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells, the mechanisms of stem cell differentiation into certain types of cells under in vitro culture conditions, the development of biomedical cell products based on stem cells, cryostorage (cryopreservation) of cells and biomaterial

Immuno-s and allergodiagnostics
Immuno-s and allergodiagnostics

laboratory of immunodiagnostics is a modern laboratory base for conducting wide specter of immunological researchers of human and animal development of new methods of diagnostic, treatment and precaution

Algology
Algology

Since the 60s of the last century research in the field of algology has been carried out at the Institute of Biophysics and Cell Engineering of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. A cycle of fundamental research was carried out, which made it possible to develop a low-cost technology for obtaining a suspension of chlorella, recommendations for use of a suspension of chlorella in agricultural production for feeding animals and poultry were issued, samples of an LED illuminator optimized for growing a suspension of chlorella were developed, microalgae as an effective producer of molecular hydrogen were identified

Biomedical Cell Products
Biomedical Cell Products

Since 2004, the Institute of Biophysics and Cell Engineering of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus has been conducting systemic research on stem cells. Based on the accumulated experience and global trends in the development of cell technologies, in 2010 the Institute created a production base for obtaining standardized cell transplants with high functional characteristics and organized the production of biomedical cell products (BMCP), which meets international GMP standards. Biomedical cell products - transplant material obtained on the basis of human cells, with the exception of embryonic, fetal, and hematopoietic stem cells, genetically modified human cells. Currently, the Institute produces 4 certified BMKP out of 8 registered by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus, being the leading commercial supplier. Cooperation with healthcare organizations in need of BMCP is implemented in the form of business contracts for their production and supply. The Institute has developed logistic algorithms that make it possible to organize the supply of these high-tech products to almost any healthcare organization in the country, as well as for export.
