“Dear Scott, I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help (always) but especially for this project in Germany. It has required so many additional details and time, including taking time out of your weekend, and you have been very helpful throughout the entire process. We truly appreciate it and the success of this project would not have been possible without your help and flexibility.” – Mobilized MNC customer transferring technology to a European CMO.
“Hi Scott, The product you sent last week was very good, as usual.” – MNC customer in U.S.
“Many thanks for you detailed email. You are correct the 5L product you offer is a very similar match to what we have been receiving to date from alternative suppliers.
However, the 3x109 cell amount is well in excess of what we typically require to start our process and hence our search for a supplier that can provide us with equivalent material, but in smaller aliquots (1-1.5x109 cells). That is what drew us to Key Biologics initially, your ability to offer a product we haven’t been able to source to date.” – MNC customer in Europe

Good job packing Key Biologics shipping team! Perhaps we won't be so frantic next time a refrigerated insulated box with $6K not-easily-replaced contents arrives a day late. Or at least a bit less frantic.” – Serum customer referring to weather-related delayed delivery of product.

“As a side note, how is the progress with being able to conduct bone marrow harvests. We do enjoy working with you and Key Biologics and it would be great to centralize our source for primary cells.”
Bone marrow aspirate collections are expected to be in place by the end of 2016. We intend to collect up to 100mL of marrow per subject, using multiple aspirations of 10mL or less to prevent dilution of the marrow with blood.
EXPANSION OF COLLECTION OPTIONS
“Also I am curious if you have these types of equipment, COBE Spectra, Spectra Optia and Fenwal Amicus. In talking to the development group, they wanted to be able to have the ability to ask for collections to be performed from specific equipment.”
“Do you have a time frame as to when you will purchase Optia? I have another client interested in collections with Optia in the very near future?”
As of August 2015, Key Biologics has all three apheresis platforms in house and available for collections.
REFERENCES FROM CUSTOMERS
“Hi Scott, Your company was recommended to me by few people in the field as reliable source of research products for validations. We are currently conducting validation of our revised cryopreservation procedure and struggling to get enough products here.”
"Hi, Scott, I’d like to connect you to Dr. L., a good friend of mine and a professor at [an academic medical center]. He may need mobilized peripheral blood cells or even purified CD34+ cells, hope you can help him out.”
We appreciate our customers recommending our products and services.
“Hey Scott, What’s it look like for collections the week of 8/18? We’d like two [mobilized MNC collections] if possible. Thanks! “
Key was able to meet this request to provide multiple mobilized MNC products collected in the same week to the customer.
“We have suddenly found ourselves in a position needing cells sooner than anticipated! I know it is very late notice, but would it be too late to put an order in for 1x109 cells (PB001-3) as previously quoted for, for delivery [in England 8 days from now]?”
While we prefer to have as much advance notice as possible, Key is able to provide products on short notice even to overseas customers.
