BioLife Solutions (NASDAQ: BLFS) is trading higher after announcing its 10-year supply agreement with TissueGene, a developer of regenerative therapies for the treatment of various orthopedic diseases. BioLife’s CryoStor clinical grade cell freeze media is integrated into TissueGene’s manufacturing process for Invossa, a drug designed to treat osteoarthritis of the knee through a single intra-articular injection. “We are very pleased to support TissueGene and Kolon with this long term supply agreement, which further supports our growth potential of the franchise we have built in the high growth cell therapy industry. We believe that CryoStor and HypoThermosol are incorporated into more than 230 customer pre-clinical validation projects and clinical trials of cell-based therapies targeting blood cancers, solid tumors, vision loss, heart disease, stroke, and movement disorders such as osteoarthritis. 2017 should be a pivotal year for BioLife, as we expect further customer progress in late stage clinical trials and regulatory approval submissions. This momentum in the regenerative medicine market should drive increased demand for CryoStor and HypoThermosol,” BioLife president and CEO Mike Rice commented in the news release.
