Cytori to utilize Sistemic’s SistemQC™ to strengthen understanding of mechanisms & support design of next-generation cell therapies.

Sistemic Ltd. has formed a customer relationship with Cytori Therapeutics (“Cytori”). Cytori will utilize Sistemic’s proprietary SistemQC™ technology platform in its U.S. cardiac cell therapy clinical trial to molecularly characterize adipose-derived stem and regenerative cells (ADRCs).

“Research has shown that within adipose tissue, as well as other cell sources like bone marrow, there are multiple distinct cell types that can contribute to efficacy,” commented Sistemic chairman and CEO Jim Reid.

Reid continued, “Cytori selecting our SistemQC serves as another validation of our technology, particularly its flexibility to characterize a wide variety of cells for identity and potency, on a molecular level. We could not be more pleased to have reached this agreement with Cytori.”

The announcement was made at the 2012 Bio International Convention in Boston, where Mr. Reid is moderating a panel on stem cell therapeutics featuring leaders from the industry, on Wednesday, June 20, at the Boston Convention Center.

“SistemQC will be incorporated into our clinical development to understand which cell types within our Celution® System’s autologous heterogeneous population of ADRCs are the greatest contributors to efficacy,” said Douglas Arm, Ph.D., Senior Vice President Operations at Cytori.

Arm continued, “With Sistemic’s novel technology, we can strengthen the mechanistic understanding of our cell output and at the same time support the design of next-generation cell therapies.”
