ThermoGenesis Announces Approval of AXP® by India Ministry of Health

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ThermoGenesis Corp. (NASDAQ: KOOL), a leading supplier of innovative products and services that process and store adult stem cells, said today that India's Ministry of Health has approved the AutoXpress® System (AXP), enabling the Company to initiate commercial sales of the product in India.  The AXP is used for the processing of stem cells from cord blood.

"We are pleased to have achieved registration for the AXP in India and will be working closely with Fenwal, Inc., our AXP distributor in the market, to begin the commercial launch of the device," said J. Melville Engle, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ThermoGenesis.

"The AXP represents advanced stem cell technology and India is one of the largest and fastest-growing markets in the world," said Vikram Karnani, vice president, Therapeutics, for Fenwal.  We look forward to working with ThermoGenesis to introduce this important technology to physicians in India."

Engle noted that the AXP approval in India comes as the Company awaits approval of the product in China. "As we announced in October, the submission has been accepted by the Chinese Food & Drug Administration (SFDA), which represents successful completion of product testing and the administrative acceptance of the submission. The final professional review is now in process and we are hopeful that the AXP will receive regulatory approval in China in early 2012."
