Gaithersburg, Maryland - April 8, 2019: MaxCyte (LSE: MXCT, MXCS), the global clinical-stage cell-based medicines and life sciences company, announced today the launch of the new ExPERT™ technology platform. This family of instruments - the ATx, STx and GTx - represents the next generation of the industry's leading, clinically validated, Flow Electroporation® technology for complex cellular engineering that will further solidify the Company's leading position in the cell therapy and gene editing markets.

With these additions to the product portfolio, MaxCyte continues its uncompromising focus on high performance cellular editing, while delivering feature enhancements that will enable customers to use a single unifying technology, from concept to commercialization. ExPERT™ introduces new updated software, a touch-screen user interface and other features that deliver a significant improvement to the user experience. The combination of the new instruments, together with the launch of a new range of processing assemblies, will enable customers to standardize on a single, unifying technology from early research through to clinical and commercial use. 

"The ExPERT instrument family is the result of extensive customer research into feature design, functionality and performance that are considered critical to enabling the next generation of cellular therapies," said Brad Calvin, Executive Vice President of Global Commercial Operations for MaxCyte. "Creating cellular editing platforms standardized on a single, scalable, high performance technology can assist the industry in accelerating timelines, reducing costs and achieving milestones critical to the translation of this promising new generation of cellular therapies."

The ExPERT ATx, STx and GTx build on the solid technology foundation that has been the core of MaxCyte's historical instrument platforms, which are used by a broad client base, including all of the top ten biopharmaceutical companies by revenue, who are developing increasingly sophisticated biological and cellular-based therapeutics.

"We are proud to announce the launch of our next-generation ExPERT brand of instruments," said Doug Doerfler, MaxCyte's President and CEO.
