ScaleReady Introduces the Cue® Cell Processing System From Fresenius Kabi

New Technology Platform Replaces Manual Processes and Brings Unmatched Precision and Efficiency to Cell and Gene Therapy Organizations

ST. PAUL, Minn., October 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ScaleReady, a joint venture between Bio-Techne (NASDAQ: TECH), Fresenius Kabi and Wilson Wolf, announced today the market launch of the Cue Cell Processing System from Fresenius Kabi, available exclusively from ScaleReady.

Cue, an automated small volume cell processing system, can precisely concentrate, wash, dilute, formulate and aliquot cell suspensions. Cue automates critical labor-intensive and highly variable tasks in the manufacturing workflow. This automated and functionally closed system will provide cell and gene therapy developers a much-needed solution for commercial scale cGMP final fill and finish.

"Our engineers developed Cue as a breakthrough technology for small volume cell processing," said Dr. Christian Hauer, president of MedTech at Fresenius Kabi. "We are committed to innovating for the unique needs of the cell and gene therapy community. Cue combines novel closed system syringe pumps with best-in-class hardware and software — an exciting addition to the ScaleReady portfolio."

Therapy developers are often required to modify their manufacturing processes to fit the constraints of existing automated equipment. Cue offers the flexibility and reliability demonstrated by Fresenius Kabi’s Lovo® Cell Processing System. Fully customizable mid-procedure sampling and recalculation enables the system to fit easily into any process, ensuring final concentration and formulations are achieved every time.

Starting today, Cue is available exclusively from ScaleReady in the U.S., Canada and Europe with other countries soon to follow. Cue has a laboratory use indication. For companies looking to use Cue for applications requiring regulatory clearance or approval, they may request technical documentation from Fresenius Kabi to support their submissions to local health regulators.
