RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ThermoGenesis Corp. (NASDAQ: KOOL), a leading supplier of innovative products and services that process and store adult stem cells, said today that its customer Beike Biotechnology Co., Ltd.

A leading stem cell and regenerative medicine company in China, Beike will be using ThermoGenesis' AXP® AutoXpress® (AXP) and BioArchive® Systems for the processing and storage of stem cells from cord blood.

Beike produces a full line of products derived from umbilical cord tissue, cord blood and bone marrow stem cells. It also operates three stand-alone cord blood processing and storage facilities, 18 specialized laboratories processing cord blood collection, five stem cell banks and two stem cell research laboratories.

"This AABB accreditation represents a major accomplishment for Beike and demonstrates its leadership position in China's regenerative medicine sector. It provides Beike a strong platform from which to further develop what we believe will be an increasingly prosperous cord blood stem cell market in China. We are pleased to be providing them our market leading tools to realize their strategy," said Matthew Plavan, Chief Executive Officer of ThermoGenesis.

"We are delighted to become the first bank in China to receive AABB accreditation for the processing and storage of cord blood and cord tissue. Our adoption of the AXP and BioArchive technologies is a critical component of our market vision to become the country's technology and quality leader in cord blood processing and storage," said Dr. Shengqin Ye, Chief Executive Officer of Beike.
