Gaithersburg, Maryland - 5 February 2020 - MaxCyte, the global cell-based therapies and life sciences company, announces its planned participation at the BIO CEO & Investor Conference at the New York Marriott Marquis. CEO & President Doug Doerfler will present Monday, 10 February at 2:30 p.m. ET (Odets Room) on how MaxCyte is driving the development of the next generation of cell-based therapies through its ExPERT™ instrument family, supporting its Life Sciences Business, and with its proprietary CARMA platform.


The ExPERT instrument family represents the next generation of the industry's leading, clinically validated, electroporation technology for complex and scalable cellular engineering. By delivering high transfection efficiency with enhanced functionality, the ExPERT platform delivers the high-end performance essential to enabling the next wave of biological and cellular therapeutics and provides a single discovery and development platform from concept to clinical development to commercialization.  In 2019, the Company signed five clinical/commercial licenses with partners including Kite (Gilead), Editas Medicine, Vor Biopharma and KSQ Therapeutics, and now has more than 100 cell therapy programmes under license of which more than 70 are licensed for clinical use.


CARMA Cellular Therapies is developing its novel and proprietary technology for non-viral, human messenger RNA (mRNA)-based, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) or T-cell receptor (TCR) redirected immune cell therapies for solid cancer and offers the potential for a safer cell therapy, as a result of transient expression of receptor(s) and a non-viral delivery approach. MaxCyte recently established its CARMA program as a wholly owned subsidiary to facilitate independent investment and new partnerships to advance the CARMA platform.
