Pharmacells™ complies with all legislative and regulatory criteria. UK legislation is amongst the most highly regarded in the world and offers you extra piece of mind. You can learn more about these requirements below.
Our activities are licensed by the HTA (Human Tissue Authority) and therefore we comply with the Human Tissue (Quality and Safety for Human Application) Regulations 2007. This piece of legislation aims to maintain the highest standards possible at all times and comes with tough compliance regimes. It is an important factor when investigating any type of human biotechnology product. The HTA implements the EUTCD (European Union Tissues and Cells Directives) which is complex legislation that sets the benchmark for the standards that must be met when carrying out any activity involving cells used in human application.
The HTA is the UK Government regulatory authority for tissue banking organisations such as Pharmacells™ and ensures quality of service and helps guarantee the highest quality systems are in place, thus establishing the excellence required for safe future use of any cells.
We hold HTA compliance licence number 22622 and work closely with another fully accredited licence holder, Vindon Cryobank Ltd.

The HTA require that the integrity and quality of our processes is guaranteed at all times. To that end, we use only Grade A laboratory environments to process cells and all private data is held on our custom built server and software systems. Through Oristem®, not only do we offer a unique service but also a high quality service.
Other legislative bodies can require licencing or registration according to local law and custom. We always follow these requirements and you can learn more about your local laws by contacting the appropriate Oristem® representative in your area.
