Date:7/22/2013

SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SynGen Inc., a company focused on the clinical implementation of medical systems that harvest stem and progenitor cells, from cord blood, bone marrow, peripheral blood, and other tissues, announced today that it has appointed Frank Pascale, formerly Senior Vice President of Business Development for Pall Medical, to lead its Cord Blood Processing business unit.

This appointment follows the 510K clearance of three integrated cord blood processing products provided by the FDA on July 10, 2013.

Philip Coelho, SynGen's CEO, hailed the hiring as a major step forward for the company.  "Frank is one of the truly accomplished veterans in the field of cell therapy and regenerative medicine.  His customer focus, experience, reputation and skill sets are exactly what we need at this time as we begin the commercialization of our advanced products.

"As Senior Vice President, Business Development, for Pall Medical, Frank successfully negotiated Haemonetic Corp's choice of Pall's leukodepletion blood filters for their automated blood collection equipment and orchestrated, along with Pall's sales, technical, and legal counsel groups, the successful closing of numerous agreements for the sale of Pall's leukodepletion blood products into the marketplace in US, Europe and Asia.  He then acted as a key member of the Pall team that concluded the sale of Pall Medical's blood businesses to Haemonetics.

"Most recently Frank focused on Pall's Cell Therapy applications. His efforts concluded in important agreements with industry leaders including ViaCord, Smith & Nephew, and Cord Blood Registry (the largest private cord collection bank in the USA). Frank's 'hands-on' and varied background involved such activities as a special projects manager, which developed a custom collection set for Cord Blood Registry.  Recently focused on orthopedic applications, Frank concluded agreements with two partners for Pall's cell harvest systems."
