Cryoport Designated as Exclusive Cryogenic Logistics Provider to Triangle Research Labs

December 29, 2014

Lake Forest, CA, December 29, 2014 - Cryoport, Inc. (OTC BB: CYRX) ("the Company"), the leading provider of advanced cryogenic logistics solutions for life sciences, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Triangle Research Labs, LLC (“TRL”).  Under the agreement, Cryoport becomes the exclusive cryogenic logistics provider for TRL, providing it with the ability to support its overall demand growth and meet its ever-increasing demand for same day cryogenic shipping.

TRL, located inResearch Triangle Park,NC, specializes in hepatocyte production for use in research focused on drug metabolism, drug-on-drug interactions, drug transporters, and hepatotoxicity.  The critical nature of the research that the company supports requires a fully validated cryogenic distribution solution to ensure that the integrity of the cell production is maintained throughout the delivery process.  To provide this solution, Cryoport has installed its secure staging model that allows TRL to meet its same day cryogenic shipping demands without compromise.

TRL is one of the fastest growing biotechnology companies in theUnited States.  TRL produces high quality hepatocytes for use in pre-clinical in vitro ADMETox applications. It provides both human and animal, fresh and cryopreserved hepatocytes, and their relevant media.  With decades of experience in the hepatic sciences, TRL is a leader in quality, service, and value in the industry.

With the integration of Cryoport’s cryogenic logistics solutions supporting the life sciences, TRL further strengthens the relationship it has with its customers while also fortifying its value proposition.  From an economic standpoint, TRL will be able to control its overall cost of operations through Cryoport’s fully-integrated system.  Cryoport’s validated dry-vapor shippers with temperature monitoring system and logistics management software will replace TRL’s existing internal dewar fleet.  From a distribution standpoint, TRL will be able to accelerate its growth domestically as well as internationally as a direct result of the support that Cryoport provides.

Matt Sherman, Executive Director of TRL, stated, “The implementation of Cryoport’s staging model for its advanced cryogenic logistics solution will provide the critical support that we need as our business continues to grow.  Our cryogenic shipping demands require a validated distribution system that Cryoport provides through their packaging and operating platform.  We look forward to advancing the value, quality, and service that we provide to our customers.”

Jerrell Shelton, Cryoport’s CEO, said, “We are excited to have TRL on board and using our leading edge cryogenic logistics system.  We think our validated solutions will provide great value to TRL as its production of high quality hepatocytes grows to meet customer demand.  We are very pleased to be a trusted provider to TRL.”
