Many industries, particularly those developing new therapeutics, use contract manufacturers to develop their design/formula and support initial clinical trials. Blood and stem cell collection centers typically have significant expertise in manufacturing and quality/regulatory compliance as well as apheresis technology and cell processing capabilities which make them credible partners for firms seeking contract manufacturing. Such industries can benefit from blood and stem cell collection centers expertise to ensure the product meeting prespecified specifications and compliance with all regulatory agencies. Stem cell and blood collection centers can also benefit from diversification of their business and using such relationships to build capacity to serve multiple industry partners.
