Company Leaders to Present and Host a Roundtable Discussion on Donor Selection, Management, and Leukapheresis Collection at Cell & Gene Therapy World in Miami, Florida

LOS ANGELES--()--HemaCare Corporation (OTCBB: HEMA), a leader in cell and tissue collection, processing, and cell therapy solutions, will be presenting and hosting a roundtable discussion at Phacilitate Cell & Gene Therapy World to be held at the Hyatt Regency Miami in Florida, January 17-20. Considered the largest gathering of cell and gene therapy experts in the world, Cell & Gene Therapy forums draw leaders from the pharma and biotech communities interested in the latest innovations in cell therapy.

“As we continue to expand our footprint in support of the cell therapy industry, we recognize a growing need from our customers and prospective partners not simply for quality and consistent cellular raw material alone, but also for collecting this material from donors who meet specific criteria”

The presentation, given by Lou Juliano, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development, and roundtable discussion will focus on the critical factors to maximize allogeneic cell therapy production. The information presented is of key importance to cell therapy researchers who depend on HemaCare as a source for highly pure, viable, and functional cells to develop their therapies.

“As we continue to expand our footprint in support of the cell therapy industry, we recognize a growing need from our customers and prospective partners not simply for quality and consistent cellular raw material alone, but also for collecting this material from donors who meet specific criteria,” said Pete van der Wal, HemaCare’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our expertise in donor selection and management, GMP/GTP-compliant cell collection, as well as handling and logistics places us at the forefront of this cutting-edge science.”
