Fat-stem laboratories – a stem cell pioneer
Creating innovative, veterinary stem cell therapies is our mission
Fat-Stem Laboratories is the first company in Europe that uses adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells for therapeutic use. We were the first to offer an extensive range of commercial veterinary cellular and other treatments.
Originally focused on orthopaedic applications in horses and dogs, our portfolio has expanded continuously and currently also includes solutions for other types of injuries, like tendon problems in horses, kidney failure in cats, cornea ulcers, and many others. We keep pushing the boundaries of stem cell science through in-house clinical veterinary research in collaboration with acknowledged European universities, veterinary clinics and stem cell technology centers.
