YaFarm Technologies Announces World Class Lab in ISCI Stem Cell Center

PITTSTON, ME -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/13 -- YaFarm Technologies, Inc. (OTC Pink: YFRM) (YaFarm, or the Company) announced today that the Integrative Stem Cell Institute (ISCI), a premier provider of point-of-care, stem cell- based therapies, is initiating design and development of a new, world-class cell processing and culture laboratory in Cancun, Mexico.

The Institute has begun construction of a class 10,000, ISO 7 clean room for the processing of autologous, mesenchymal cells for point-of-care therapies. "This lab is critical for the Institute," says Juan Castillo-Plaza, MD, founder of the ISCI. "As part of our commitment to patient safety, and our on-going clinical studies and research, we will be able to draw, process and then inject the patient's cells within the same facility."

The ISCI lab is part of a 2,000 sq ft facility that is housed in the Hospital Galenia in Cancun, Mexico. "This will be one of the most advanced laboratories in world," continues Castillo. The ISCI has brought in experts from around the world to both design the layout of the libratory space as well as develop standard operating procedures (SOPs) to assure the highest possible standards for quality assurance and quality control.

An essential element of the laboratory's design is the development of an innovative Cell Processing Program (CPP) to define the function and management of the facility. This process identifies specific processes for the selection, sorting and the differentiation of autologous progenitor cells, as well as the long-term cryo-preservation of these repair cells. The CPP has a vigorous quality assurance program built into it with on-going validation procedures, continuous quality control mechanisms, as well as robust record management and data storage systems.

The ISCI believes that the design and construction of this category of laboratory space within a hospital setting is critical for the continued advancement of the field of regenerative medicine. "And we are pleased to have this state-of-the-art facility in a hospital with the stature and quality as Hospital Galenia," continues Castillo. "It is the only hospital in Mexico that is accredited by both the Joint Commission International (JCI) and Accreditation Canada International (ACI)."

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon.

Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
