In this strategic partnership, RoosterBio becomes the first US-based service provider approved by NanoFCM to perform contract analytical services using the NanoAnalyzer platform
NanoFCM today announced that RoosterBio a leading supplier of human mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (hMSCs), highly engineered media, development services, cell engineering, and advanced therapy bioprocess solutions, is approved to provide analytical services worldwide using NanoFCM’s NanoAnalyzer.
In this strategic partnership, RoosterBio becomes the first US-based service provider approved by NanoFCM to perform contract analytical services using the NanoAnalyzer platform. RoosterBio has leveraged the NanoAnalyzer in its exosome / extracellular vesicle (EV) analytics workflows for over a year and offers this technology as a stand-alone service as well as integrated within broader exosome process development programs.
In recent years, exosomes have emerged as a powerful new therapeutic modality, and the number of EV-based products in preclinical and clinical development is increasing rapidly. Traditional methods for exosome characterization have been limited to population-level analysis, while conventional flow cytometry lacks the sensitivity required for single nanoparticle analysis. NanoFCM’s NanoAnalyzer instrument has become established as a powerful tool for multiparameter characterization of natural and synthetic nanoparticles at the single-particle level. RoosterBio is routinely applying this technology to accelerate its customers’ path to the clinic as part of a comprehensive suite of analytical methods to characterize the quality, identity, purity, and potency of both native and genetically engineered exosome products.
RoosterBio and NanoFCM will leverage their combined expertise to develop updated protocols, procedures, and expanded analytical capabilities for NanoFCM’s NanoAnalyzer instrument.
“The in-depth knowledge and expertise in EV characterization provided by RoosterBio will allow new and existing EV platforms to thrive in this exciting field” said Ben Peacock, Head of Research for NanoFCM Co., Ltd. “Coupled with innovative technologies like NanoFCM’s NanoAnalyzer these analytical services will drive promising advancement in EV research, therapeutics and prognostics.”
“We are delighted to be selected as an approved provider for state-of-the-art exosome analytical characterization using NanoFCM’s NanoAnalyzer technology,” said Tim Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of RoosterBio. “Exosomes offer extremely high utility as a new therapeutic modality with the potential to address unmet medical needs, but perhaps the biggest obstacle the field faces is the lack of sensitive, quantitative technologies for EV characterization. Together with NanoFCM, we are solving these key challenges and creating the framework for a truly well-characterized EV biologic.”
