ThermoGenesis Corp Signs Strategic Supply Agreement with Orthohealing Center Management to Provide it's PXP® Point-of-Care System to Orthohealing Method™ Physician Members

February 1, 2019

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Feb. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ThermoGenesis Corp., a private corporation owned by Cesca Therapeutics (Nasdaq: KOOL), has entered into a Supply Agreement with Orthohealing Center Management (OCM) that will allow the OCM network of physicians to utilize the ThermoGenesis PXP system to prepare a precise cell concentrate from autologous bone marrow in their office laboratories in order to provide the benefits of their Orthohealing Method to their patients.

Haihong Zhu, ThermoGenesis' President, stated, "We are pleased to support OCM's rapidly expanding base of physician members who provide regenerative treatments for orthopaedic, sports medicine and pain management. We believe this agreement benefits both parties as our market penetration of the PXP system grows and Orthohealing Method members obtain cost-effective, 'closed system' sterile cell processing with our cutting-edge technology."

The PXP system is laboratory equipment that automates the harvest of a precise volume of cell concentrate from bone marrow aspirate in a sterile, "functionally closed" process at the point-of-care. PXP can generate a concentration of bone marrow mononuclear cells, CD34+ progenitor cells and platelets in less than 20 minutes while depleting > 98% of contaminating RBCs and excess plasma for use in OCM's Orthohealing Method.  Processing data is captured using ThermoGenesis' proprietary DataTrak software to assist with Good Manufacturing Practice process monitoring and reporting information.
