The aim of the study was to investigate microbiological contamination rate during human pancreatic islet isolation. Between 1996 and 2002, pancreas preservation media and post-purification islet preparations were screened for microbiological contamination. After arrival in the laboratory, pancreata were washed prior to enzyme perfusion with either Hank's balanced salt solution (Group I, n = 170, 1996 to 2001) or decontaminated with polyvidonum-iodine, cefazoline, and amphotericine B (Group II… CONTINUE READING
