Attracted to Start-Up Success: An Innovative Use of Polymer Coating for Cell Separation turns Northeastern Researchers into Entrepreneurs

Beginning in 2010, Chemical Engineer Professor Shashi Murthy, Ph.D, and his graduate students worked to develop a hydrogel coating that would adhere to individual cells, protecting them and allowing them to be separated from surrounding cells, blood and tissue. Eager to get their product- dubbed QuickGel™– into the hands of researchers, drug developers, and clinicians, the team filed for a …

Development of a Novel Cell-Separation Platform: Discussion with Quad Technologies CEO Sean Kevlahan

Releasing and separating cells from surfaces and capture molecules are critical steps in cell therapy development. Research into such therapies as chimeric antigen receptor T cells (CAR-T) cancer therapies and stem-cell regenerative medicines demand the isolation and purification of viable and functional target cells. A number of cell-separation strategies can be used to produce such cells, but they are not …

Overcoming the Roadblocks to Successful T-Cell Isolation

New Method for High-Efficiency Capture and Label-Free Release of High-Purity Target Cell Populations Cell-based therapeutics, such as CAR-T cancer therapies, are poised to transform 21st century medical care. These innovative medicines require highly specific isolation and purification of large numbers of viable, functional cells, a process that is often technically complex and cost-prohibitive. Consequently, demand is growing for novel approaches …

Novel Hydrogel-Based Approach for Cell Isolation, Purification and Release

The purification and enrichment of specific cell populations from complex starting samples is a critical component of multiple life science workflows. While the key objective of most protocols is to obtain a highly pure and viable population of cells for downstream applications and analysis, most do not meet this goal. Issues with conventional cell separation methods, such as traditional magnetic …
