American CryoStem Expands With New Stem Cell Processing and Cryogenic Storage Laboratory

Company Provides Interim Update

EATONTOWN, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 6, 2016) - American CryoStem Corporation (OTC PINK: CRYO), a leading developer and marketer of patented adipose tissue-based cellular technologies for the regenerative and personalized medicine industries with laboratories in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China, today announced that it has expanded with the opening of a new, state-of-the-art lab facility in Princeton, NJ.

The Company has moved from its original lab facility into a new, larger laboratory facility that provides processing and bio-banking of adipose tissue (fat) for cosmetic tissue grafting, Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF), and culturing of autologous adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSCs). The new laboratory will support the Company's increasing processing and bio-banking operations with far higher capacity, at enhanced efficiency to meet growing demand in the US and internationally -- in addition to increased R&D capabilities.

John Arnone, Chairman and CEO of American CryoStem Corporation, stated, "Our new, larger Princeton lab contains a suite of advanced biotechnology and stem cell processing equipment. This investment reflects our confidence in the growing global demand we are seeing for our patented technologies and services, as well as the solid progress achieved in our new business initiatives under active development.

"The move into a new, world-class facility is an important company milestone," Mr. Arnone added. "We're excited to be in the new lab as we successfully execute on plan to fully commercialize these advanced stem cell technologies -- with the promise of helping to revolutionize the regenerative medicine industry."

Today's announcement marks the culmination of strong company progress. American CryoStem's first US laboratory was in a New Jersey-based biotech incubator that provided capital efficiency during its development stage, enabling it to complete its initial stem cell platform, establish its brand in the industry and receive the Incubator Company of the Year award from the NJ Business Incubation Network. There, it established and validated its proprietary protocols, developed world-class Standard Operating Procedures (SOP's), filed eight US and three international patents and initiated revenue producing services around its adipose tissue collection-processing-expansion-storage platform.

Now, and going forward, this new facility increases storage capacity, shortens turnaround times for processing, provides a robust tech platform for additional research and allows the company ample space to deliver its proprietary consumable products to its growing global footprint of processing laboratories. It is located in the heart of New Jersey's biotech and pharmaceutical corridor at Princeton Corporate Plaza, 7 Deer Park Drive, Building 7, Suite C7, Monmouth Junction, NJ 08852.
