There are a number of approaches to the isolation of adipose-derived stromal vascular fraction (SVF) for the applications in regenerative medicine. Despite all advantages, existing approaches are expensive and therefore hardly available for the clinical use. Here we present a new automated system for the isolation of adipose-derived SVF which combines an acceptable quality with high speed and acceptable cost. We describe the requirements for liposuction, infiltration anesthesia, and preservation of lipoaspirate, an original protocol of SVF isolation, and a quality control experiment. According to the flow cytometry data, SVF isolated by system contained 66,000 cells (≥98% alive, ≥92% nuclear) per 100 μL. The proportion of lymphocytes/monocytes and target cell fraction amongst the nuclear cells was 91.8% and 7.5%, respectively. The proportion of adipose-derived stem cells in SVF was ≥0.5%. Therefore, system is efficient for the rapid isolation of adipose-derived SVF.
