MaxCyte to host webinar:
"Non-viral cell engineering: enabling a therapeutic revolution"
Gaithersburg, Maryland - 16 November 2018: MaxCyte (LSE: MXCT, MXCR), the global cell-based medicines and life sciences company, will host a webinar, entitled "Non-viral cell engineering: enabling a therapeutic revolution," for investors and sell-side analysts between 15:00 - 16:00 GMT on Tuesday 20th November 2018.
MaxCyte has established itself as a world leader in non-viral cell engineering - offering a rapid, safe and clinically-focused means of delivering the next generation of cell-based therapies, which is underlined by the Company's recent commercial and research partnerships with leading biotech companies including Kite, a Gilead Company; CRISPR Therapeutics; and Precision BioSciences.
This webinar will showcase and explain how MaxCyte's technology enables its partners to unlock the potential of their cutting-edge product development programs by giving them the means to create drugs using gene-editing technology in the treatment of inherited genetic diseases and cancer without using viral-vectors, which can be complicated and expensive to manufacture.
"Recent years have seen the emergence of a remarkable new class of cell-based therapies targeting many indications - from ultra-rare diseases affecting a handful of patients to some of the most common forms of cancer," said Doug Doerfler, President & CEO of MaxCyte, Inc. "These therapies are made possible by the extraordinary vision of scientists and clinicians and by a common core capability, the ability to engineer cells for patients."
"MaxCyte is at the forefront of this revolution in therapeutics and brings a uniquely powerful, validated and differentiated approach to cell engineering that is enabling pioneers in the industry to develop these new treatments as well as powering MaxCyte's own therapeutic development programs," he added.
MaxCyte's business model provides not only a stable and growing recurring revenue stream from its technology access fees and disposable sales but offers significant medium- and long-term upside from potential milestone- and sales-based payments from its partners' therapeutic development programs. This has been demonstrated in the licence agreements recently entered into with CRISPR Therapeutics and Precision Biosciences. Milestones for MaxCyte's clinical licenses are generally followed by sales-based payments as products using MaxCyte's technology progress to commercialization.
The webinar will be followed by a Q&A session.
