London, UK and Woodcliff Lake, NJ, US, April 14, 2021 – ATMPS Ltd, a leader in blockchain-based “vein to vein” cell orchestration platforms for advanced therapies, and Ori Biotech, an innovator in cell and gene therapy (CGT) manufacturing platforms, today announce a global collaboration to create seamless integration between their respective data platforms to support the development of Advanced Therapies.
The non-exclusive partnership will result in the integration of Ori’s proprietary CGT manufacturing platform’s data architecture with ATMPS’ HataaliTM, a secure data sharing platform, specially designed as a scalable system for advanced therapies. The combination of the two proprietary platforms will provide improved product tracking, scheduling as well as live monitoring of the manufacturing status across the entire CGT supply chain from vein to vein.
“Ori selected ATMPS’ Hataali technology for integration with our platform to allow the secure sharing of relevant process data with therapy developers, contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs) and even clinicians or patients in real-time. This collaboration will provide increased visibility into the treatment process for those involved at each stage of the treatment process,” said Jason C. Foster, CEO, Ori Biotech. “The addition of established technologies from companies like ATMPS allows Ori to further its mission of enabling partners across the CGT industry to bring therapies as safely, cost effectively and quickly as possible to large numbers of patients with few alternative therapeutic options.”
Hataali encrypts and stores data using distributed ledger technology through a process known as hashing. This process ensures data security is protected through a system of private keys and cryptography. Hataali was the first cell orchestration platform installed in a hospital globally and ATMPS the first blockchain company to integrate with the UK National Health Service for the delivery of advanced therapies.
“Ori is an ideal partner for ATMPS, as both companies share a common mission to lower the costs and improve processes for cell and gene therapies. Ori’s work in helping innovators scale from preclinical to commercial is a massive step towards reducing complexity and bringing these vital therapies to patients more quickly,” said Raja Sharif, CEO, ATMPS. “We all know how challenging and expensive the development and manufacturing of CGTs can be. With the help of Hataali, Ori can securely leverage vein-to-vein data to advance their manufacturing solutions much more efficiently. This will enable real-time therapy tracking, improved patient trust and expediated clinical development.”
Ori continues to experience significant growth since closing a $30 million Series A round of funding as it prepares to bring its platform to market. The company is actively recruiting the best talent in cell and gene therapy technology through its networks and through www.oribiotech.com.
ATMPS Ltd provides patent pending advanced technical solutions for healthcare companies in the Advanced Therapy Medicines Products sector, including CAR-T treatments, stem cell and gene treatments.
