As the cell and gene therapy industry rapidly advances across the United States, Europe and beyond, developing international standards has become an urgent need.
To further support the industry on a global scale, Be The Match BioTherapies® has announced plans for an expansion to Europe, including the launch of a new partnership with Cellex Cell Professionals to build international standards for the cell therapy industry. Under the agreement, the two organizations will partner to develop and deploy an international cell collection network, and to create and implement standards to ease the burden on apheresis and collection infrastructure across Europe.
In addition, Be The Match BioTherapies appointed an International Collection Network Manager, Petr Machalik, who will be responsible for strengthening and growing our vast collection center network.
According to Julie Smolich, our Senior Vice President of Product Delivery and Development, these international initiatives are a significant milestone in Be The Match BioTherapies’ broader efforts to define standards for the industry. “We look forward to working with our partners at Cellex to accelerate the development of international standards that will ease the growing strain on apheresis centers and transplant centers, and help ensure high-quality starting material so that patients can have the best outcomes possible,” she said.
