Optimal Apheresis Collections

With an exciting number of new cell therapies progressing towards clinical trials, optimizing the quality of cell therapy starting materials has become an essential component to cell therapy development success. Cell collection methods and apheresis techniques greatly impact the quality and therapeutic potency of starting material. With over 40 years of experience, HemaCare has performed over 300,000 apheresis procedures. Their qualified collection methods provide high-quality leukapheresis material, demonstrating high purity prior to any further cell purification or isolation. Optimized collections are ideal for autologous process development work and starting material for allogeneic cell therapies. All collections from healthy donors are performed within HemaCare’s FDA registered, GMP-compliant collection center.

GMP-compliant Starting Material

Following GMP and GTP collection guidelines is often necessary for both pre-clinical and clinical development. Developing standardized protocols for tissue collection and handling will minimize product variability and protect downstream efficacy. Optimizing a production workflow helps ensure an effective and reliable product. HemaCare provides GMPrime leukopaks and bone marrow aspirates that support clinical trials and commercialized therapies, globally.
