3/18/2013. HALO®-96 SPC-QC FDA Master File.
HemoGenix has received a Master File Number from FDA CBER for its HALO-96 SPC-QC assay, a blood stem cell quality control assay for cord blood banks and stem cell processing transplantation laboratories. The assay is used to ensure that stem cell "quality" is not lost during a processing or cryopreservation procedure prior to use in the patient. The assay, first developed in 2005, is the second to receive a Master File Number from the FDA. HALO-96 PQR, the first commercially available potency assay for blood stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood, peripheral blood or bone marrow received a Master File Number in 2012. HALO-96 SPC-QC and HALO-96 PQR are two of seven assays developed by HemoGenix for cellular therapy and regenerative medicine. Receiving a Master File Number means that Biologics License Applications (BLA) and Investigational New Drugs (IND) applications can reference the Master File without having to provide documentation.
