Author information

  • 1Stem Cell Bank of AndalucĂ­a (Spanish Central Node), Hospital Universitario Virgen de las Nieves, Granada, Spain.


The use of cell cultures in research and in regenerative medicine programs has increased in the past few years, and control of the risks inherent to these procedures should be increased. People who work in stem cell bank installations should be aware of the risks implied in their work and take necessary self-protection measures for the known and unidentified risks. Work in stem cell bank installations is subject to different types of risks, such as toxicologic, carcinogen and, mainly, infectious risks. Different types of safety measurements should be distinguished and secured, for example for protection of personnel, protection of the cell cultures and protection in general of humans and the environment.
