Canadian regulators have given ThermoGenesis the all-clear to sell its automated system for harvesting stem cells from cord blood. The AutoXpress (AXP) device, which automates what was typically an 18-step manual process, harvests the cells in a functionally-closed processing set without requiring expensive clean rooms and labour intensive processes, said the Rancho Cordova, California firm. It also improves the recovery rates of the stem cells. The product will be marketed by its exclusive distributor, GE Healthcare.
