Mark Jones, Biologist & Laboratory Scientist, Cell Expansion Project “Innovation and Product Development”

10:30 – 10:45 AM   Break

10:45 – 11:45 AM   Business meeting

Main Program Information

Gain insight into how a new medical device goes from being an idea to becoming a reality.  What type of process does a new product go through in its years of development before it reaches the floor of your medical center?  The program will provide an overview of how innovations and market needs spur new product development.

The talk will highlight the latest system created for regenerative medicine:  the new Quantum Cell Expansion System.  Research in cell therapies shows promising treatment possibilities: to treat neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s Disease, to regenerate cardiac tissue following myocardial infarction, to reverse pancreatic disease in Diabetes, and to heal Graft-versus-Host-Disease following transplantation.  These therapies rely on large-scale cell culture, or cell expansion, to produce the required therapeutic dose.  However, isolating and growing stem cells has posed many challenges, and millions of stem cells are required for a single treatment.

In order to meet such a clinical demand, CaridianBCT has developed a method for the ex vivo expansion of mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow using an automated hollow fiber bioreactor system. The extremely compact sterile bioreactor culture system has rapidly grown therapeutic dosages of mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow aspirates within 14-29 days in experimental studies.

This new product from CaridianBCT, a worldwide leader in blood component technologies and therapeutics, is currently being released internationally.  Join us on November 19th for a program on innovative product development.

Security/parking instructions

CaridianBCT is easily reached from I-25/W. 6th Ave or West Colfax.  From Simms Street, go east on W. Collins Ave and follow the signs to Visitor Parking on your right.  Visitor parking is located closest to the 10810 building with the ramp on the front.  Please check in first with reception in the 10811 building to the north, just across the circle drive with the flagpoles.  Once you receive your visitor’s badge, proceed to the 10810 building where you parked.  Go up the ramp in the front of the building to the second floor where you will be met at the door and directed to the Learning Center and the Library.  Please try to arrive between 8 and 8:15 if you are attending the education program, or close to 9 am if you are coming for the tour and main program.
