MaxCyte to Provide Updates on First-in-class CARMA™ Platform at BIO Investor Forum

Oct 15, 2019

Gaithersburg, Maryland – October 15, 2019: MaxCyte, the global cell-based therapies and life sciences company, announces its planned participation at the BIO Investor Forum in San Francisco, California. CEO & President Doug Doerfler will present 22 October at 11:15 a.m. PT on how MaxCyte is driving the development of the next generation of cell-based medicines with its proprietary CARMA™ platform.

CARMA is MaxCyte’s clinical-stage, non-viral, mRNA-based cell therapy platform that allows for the transfection of mRNA into cells and provides a simple, rapid-to-manufacture, dose-controllable product. CARMA requires less than one day for manufacture therapies for patients, where existing CAR-T therapies require one to two weeks or more to manufacture. MaxCyte’s wholly-owned lead CARMA candidate, MCY-M11, is currently being evaluated in a Phase I clinical trial in patients with advanced ovarian cancer and peritoneal mesothelioma.

The BIO Investor Forum is an international biotech investor conference focused on early and established private companies as well as emerging public companies. The event features plenary sessions, business roundtables and therapeutic workshops, company presentations, and BIO One-on-One Partnering™ meetings. For more information, please visit: //
