The Marrow Miner – A Better Way to Harvest Bone Marrow

Posted Jul 29 2009 10:42pm

With all the recent technology with stem cells, this is fascinating to watch how this physician has created a device and procedure to harvest bone marrow with very little discomfort for the donor. 

 

Daniel Kraft demos his Marrow Miner -- a new device that quickly harvests life-saving bone marrow with minimal pain to the donor. He emphasizes that the adult stem cells found in bone marrow can be used to treat many terminal conditions, from Parkinson's to heart disease.
