FREEHOLD, N.J., Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Lifeblood Medical, Inc. has established Cell Preservation Solutions, LLC. The wholly owned subsidiary will conduct research and development on Lifeblood Medical's proprietary solution to enhance the technology for innovative applications.

"It is important for Lifeblood Medical to focus on the FDA approval process of Lifor® for organ transplantation," stated Joseph Fischer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lifeblood Medical, Inc. "However, I feel it is also important that if we have a proprietary solution that can improve a multitude of preservation applications to get that product-use to market, so to this end Cell Preservation Solutions will begin research."

Mr. Fischer continued, "We will begin our research and development efforts to optimize our technology for use with stem cells, primary human cells and tissue and cell cryopreservation. This will create efficient protocols for each use as well as possible patent expansion based on the application. From there we will investigate other cell and tissue lines that can benefit from our technology."
