Abstract

Skin cell gun, is an innovative medical device used in the treatment of burns and wounds.  In this device the injured person’s autologous stem cells are used which is a recent novel stem cell isolation technique that enhances the availability of stem cells for transplantation methods. The device is specially designed to spray the stem cells suspension on the burnt areas without exposing the stem cells to vanquish the conditions seen in general spray devices. Rapid wound healing is experienced in few days than in weeks or months. Generally when a skin wound is prone to the outside environmental conditions, that itself provides the best supplement’s for culturing of the stem cells. This review demonstrates the operation of skin gun, advantages, isolation of stem cells and wound healing process.
