The entire activity of the Freezlife laboratory will be moved to Biogenis, which boasts higher storage capacity for stem cells.

Cristian Lacraru, marketing and communications director at Biogenis, said the FamiCord Group is currently analyzing the acquisition of other stem cell banks both in Romania and the EU.

Biogenis has been active in Romania since 2007. The company is a founding member of ARBACS (Association of Accredited Stem Cell Banks).
