X-Therma CEO Dr. Xiaoxi Wei welcomed her first baby into the world and is proud he became the first donor and “Patient” for X-Therma CORDX program. The medical team at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center collected the cord blood, cord tissue and placenta from the newborn with X-Therma’s collection kit. The precious cord and placental stem cells and tissues were seamlessly delivered to X-Therma’s facility in Richmond and cryopreserved with the XT-ViVoTM products series in liquid nitrogen (-196℃) following GMP standard practices. The future revival of such stem cells and tissues will benefit from non-toxic XT-ViVoTM solutions with excellent recovery from freezing. X-Therma continues to advance the hope for effective regenerative medicine treatments.

Dr. Mark Kline, Chief Technology Officer of X-Therma will deliver an enchanting entreprenuer story at the American Chemical Society (ACS) Entreprenuer Summit on Nov 15-16th, Washington D.C.
