Objective: Excised fat tissue (EFT) is an excellent source of adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) for autologous cell therapy. However, the current technique for excising fat tissues with conventional surgical scissors and using culture medium containing fetal bovine serum (FBS) may not comply with Good Tissue Practice (GTP) guidelines. We thus developed a semi-automated process complying with the abovementioned guideline to manufacture clinicalgrade ADSCs from small volumes of EFT. Methods: A semi-automated process was developed by using a disposable disperser tube operated on a Tube Disperser Workstation to obtain stromal vascular fraction (SVF) from EFT. A culture medium supplemented with human autologous serum (HAS) and mesenchymal stem cell culture adjuvant (MCA) consisted of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF/FGF-2) and antioxidants, was formulated to expand ADSCs from SVF in vitro. Results: The semi-automated process can markedly enhance cell yields and reduce the operation time for mincing tissues from an hour down to a few minutes. The growth of ADSCs was slower in the 10% HAS medium than that in medium supplemented with FBS, but their growth in the 10% HAS medium containing MCA (10% HAS+MCA) was superior to both media. The 10% HAS+MCA medium also promoted adipogenesis, osteogenesis, chondrogenesis and increased the expression of CD44, CD73 and the stemness genes in the ADSCs. Conclusion: Our novel semi-automated process provides an efficient isolation of SVF, and the 10% HAS+MCA medium accelerates the growth of ADSCs from small amounts of EFT without losing their differentiation ability.
