NEWTON, Mass., May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Parcell Laboratories, a leading adult stem cell company based in Newton, MA, was awarded the prestigious 2012 Innovation Award by the Smaller Business Association of New England (SBANE). Parcell joins the select list of winning companies from the last 26 years whose innovations have delivered proven value to customers.

SBANE uses its highly competitive Innovation Awards program to showcase technology driven enterprises that are potentially "game changers" in their markets. Parcell's ELA® stem cell technology is a platform technology that has unlimited applications for tissue regeneration and is positioned to change the face of regenerative medicine. "We are honored to have been recognized by SBANE for our accomplishments and to be included among the roster of extremely successful companies that have been previous winners of the award," said Pamela Layton, the CEO of Parcell Laboratories. "The award is a testament to the dedication and tenacity of our terrific team." Past award winners include some of the most recognizable names in New England business, including Staples, Genzyme, Ben & Jerry's and Nantucket Nectars.

Parcell Laboratories holds the license and intellectual property to the ELA stem cell, which is considered to be the earliest lineage adult stem cell in the adult body. The cell is able to differentiate into all tissues and has the added benefit of being immune privileged, allowing it to be implanted without the risk of rejection. Parcell's ELA cells are being used by surgeons nationwide to enhance bone regeneration in the aging spine. The product is marketed under the name of PureGen® Osteoprogenitor Cell Allograft by Alphatec Spine of Carlsbad, CA. Parcell is also in the development phase of therapeutics using the ELA stem cell for disc and cartilage repair.
