New Closed Processing System Will Support
Commercial-Scale Manufacturing of Cell Therapies
NeoStem, Inc. and Invetech Pty Ltd announced an agreement for the development of a new closed processing system for cell therapy manufacturing. Under the agreement, Invetech will provide system design and engineering development and NeoStem will develop applications for performing closed cell processing manipulations such as separation. The agreement envisions NeoStem as the commercial supplier of "the System."

The System will be applicable to a range of cell therapy processes in development and commercialization stages, and will consist of an instrumentation platform, disposable flow path, and operating and application software for automated execution of user-selected protocols. The System will provide a flexible small-scale process suitable for GMP manufacturing of autologous and other patient-specific products where small scale is full scale, while also supporting efficient development of processes at lower cost prior to transitioning to scaled volumes.

Progenitor Cell Therapy (PCT) will carry out the work and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NeoStem. For more information, please visit
