GAITHERSBURG, Md., May 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MaxCyte announced today that Doug Doerfler, Chief Executive Officer, will provide a company overview at the 2019 BIO International Convention on Wednesday, June 5, at 1:15 p.m. ET at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.

In his presentation, Mr. Doerfler will discuss:

    --  The status of MaxCyte's Phase I dose-escalation clinical trial with
        MCY-M11, a wholly-owned non-viral mRNA-based therapeutic candidate from
        MaxCyte's CARMA(TM) platform. Investigators recently began dosing in the
        trial's second cohort of individuals with relapsed/refractory ovarian
        cancer and peritoneal mesothelioma. MaxCyte is one of a small number of
        companies with a cell therapy for solid tumours in the clinic, and
        successful dosing represents MaxCyte's unique approach to chimeric
        antigen receptor ("CAR") therapy, including its rapid manufacturing
        process.
    --  MaxCyte's commercial momentum including new multi-drug commercial
        agreements signed with CRISPR Therapeutics, Precision BioSciences  and
        with Kite, a Gilead Company.  All programs enable non-viral cell
        engineering for development of multiple CAR-T drug candidates. MaxCyte's
        total number of cell therapy partnered program licenses total more than
        70 including more than 35 partnered program licensed for clinical
        development.
    --  MaxCyte's newly launched next generation of commercially-oriented
        instruments and consumables, under the ExPERT(TM) brand. This includes
        three instrument formats with enhanced design and functionality, coupled
        with a wider range of consumables that offer expanded utility from early
        research to clinical and commercial use.
