Obstacles Preventing GMP Cell Therapy from Becoming Mainstream

Cell and gene therapies (CGT) are gaining greater popularity in the community as viable regenerative medicine options. Although there has been a lot of progress made in a relatively short amount of time, there are challenges to overcome before these treatments can become more mainstream. As a solution to the concerns with rapid, scalable manufacturing, … Continued

Cryopreservation: A Key Element in the Successful Delivery of GMP Cell Therapies

The Importance of Cryopreservation in GMP Cell Therapy Cryopreservation is a process that preserves cells and tissues by freezing samples to very low temperatures over a period of time. It’s important to the cell therapy manufacturing process because cell samples need to be properly stored in order to maintain their viability and functionality later down … Continued

CDMO: An Approach for Scalability and Manufacturing

Over the last few decades, cell therapies, such as stem cell and CAR-T, have become increasingly important in fighting cancer and are therefore creating a need for cell therapy companies to make these life-saving products available at a larger scale. Cell therapies have become personal, that is they can be tailor made to be an … Continued

Transient Warming Events and the Effects on Cell Viability

When it comes to cell processing and cell manufacturing, it’s extremely important that samples are collected and stored properly so that they retain the greatest viability for use in the future. As you can imagine, there are some logistical challenges associated with cryopreserving samples at just the right temperature for an extended period of time, … Continued

Red Blood Cells and the Effects of Cell Processing

What is Cell Processing Cell processing is the practice of concentrating, selecting and/or culturing cells from blood or blood products, for example bone marrow or cord blood, that can then be used to treat diseases.  The process begins with the collection of the blood or blood product (sample) from a person at a hospital or … Continued

Cell Storage Solutions for Cellular Manufacturing of Clinical Products

Cell and gene therapies have become increasingly popular in the last few decades, especially with the recent FDA approval of CAR T-cell therapies such as Kymriah and Yescarta. These life-changing therapies are the latest in scientific and technological advancements in the field of regenerative medicine and it is exciting to see the progress that has … Continued

Four Tips to Consider for Cryopreservation of Cell Therapies

Cryopreservation is the process of using ultra-low temperatures to preserve living cells for long periods of time. It is an essential aspect of the cell manufacturing process of many cell therapies. While there are multiple factors to consider for developing a cryopreservation process that will ensure safe and effective manufacturing of cell therapies, below are … Continued
