BioLife Solutions Announces Exclusive CryoStor(TM) Supply Agreement With the New England Cryogenic Center, Inc.
Date:8/19/2007

Significant Improvement in Number and Viability of Stem Cells Derived from

Cord Blood Enabled by BioLife's Patented Preservation Media

BOTHELL, Wash., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioLife Solutions Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BLFS), a leading developer and marketer of proprietary hypothermic storage and cryopreservation media products for cells, tissues, and organs, today announced an agreement as the exclusive supplier of preservation media to the New England Cryogenic Center, Inc. (NECC), one of the world's largest providers of cryogenically preserved human cells and tissues.

The five year agreement includes volume based pricing and an exclusive commitment from NECC to purchase all of its demand for cord blood preservation media from BioLife.

New England Cord Blood Bank Chief Executive John Rizza remarked: "We continually strive to improve our cord blood preservation protocols and results, and we've seen significant improvement in post-thaw cell recovery and viability with BioLife's CryoStor, compared to our prior in-house media formulations. In addition, pre-formulated and sterile CryoStor eliminates our labor cost of mixing preservation media in our lab. CryoStor is also serum-free and protein-free, so this resolved an albumin supply issue we faced. Based on our early experience, we're quite interested in evaluating BioLife's preservation media for use by our affiliated sperm bank and for other emerging stem cell applications."

BioLife Chief Executive Mike Rice commented: "The New England Cryogenic Center and their affiliates around the world are on the leading edge of preservation science, so we're very pleased to become their exclusive supplier and count them as a key customer and research partner in developing new applications for CryoStor and other our preservation media products."

According to an August 2006 research report published by Jain PharmaBiotech, the total value of cell-based markets was $27 billion
