BioLife Solutions' CryoStor(TM) Adopted by Tissue Regeneration Therapeutics for Preservation Protocol for New, Non-Embryonic Source of Stem Cells
Date:9/17/2007

Umbilical Cord Tissue Provides Building-Block Cells for Muscle, Bone,

Connective Tissues

BOTHELL, Wash., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioLife Solutions Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BLFS), a leading developer and marketer of proprietary hypothermic storage and cryopreservation media products for cells, tissues, and organs, today announced that privately held Tissue Regeneration Therapeutics Inc. (TRT) has adopted and recommends BioLife's CryoStor as part of its standard preservation protocol for mesenchymal stem cells derived from umbilical cord tissue.

TRT holds patents and intellectual property rights to a process of removing and storing stem cells from umbilical cord tissue. Mesenchymal stem cells are the progenitor cells for muscle, bone, and connective tissues. Published uses of mesenchymal cells in cell therapy include treatment of auto-immune and inflammatory diseases, cancer, heart disease, and tissue engineering.

John E. Davies, President of TRT, Professor of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto, and inventor of the HUCPVC (Human Umbilical Cord PeriVascular Cell) technology, commented: "As with all cell-based therapies, post-preservation yield and viability are critically important and directly related to clinical efficacy and the overall success of product development, commercial production, and the cost of delivering the therapy to the patient. Our use of CryoStor was driven by a need for a high performance, serum free, fully defined, GMP compliant preservation media. CryoStor uses only USP or highest-available grade components. All of these safety and quality factors led to our decision to adopt this new enabling technology."

BioLife Chairman and CEO Mike Rice remarked: "We are very pleased to be able to provide a key component that substantially improves the preservation and utility of umbilical cord tissue derived stem cells. As a result, TRT and its partner
