RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Jan. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ThermoGenesis Corp. (NASDAQ: KOOL), a leading supplier of innovative products and services that process and store adult stem cells, said today, it had received an initial order for its BioArchive® System from a new public cord blood bank that will begin operations in Canada in early 2013.
