VetCell Bioscience Limited is the leading provider of stem cell technology to the world of animal health. VetCell is a trading company of MedCell Bioscience Ltd and was formed in partnership with the Royal Veterinary College and the Institute for Orthopaedic and Musculoskeletal Science to develop the veterinary use of stem cell technologies.
VetCell has rapidly commercialised a technique for the multiplication of equine stem cells which can be used in the treatment of tendon and ligament injury. This service is now available to veterinary surgeons in the UK and internationally. VetCell has also developed a simple method for separating and storing stem cells from the umbilical cord of foals.
VetCell also sells a product designed to generate Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is used to promote wound, bone and ligament/tendon repair.
For horses with collapsed heels there is a hoof support product which helps to eliminate the associated side effects. The hoof support, which was designed by farriers and the locomotor research group at the Royal Veterinary College, is a device that increases the bending strength of the equine hoof wall and thereby helps to prevent collapse and deformation.
These products provide the platform from which the company will expand to provide a new globally available range of veterinary therapeutic options in cats, dogs, horses and other domestic species.
