Winston-Salem, NC – April 27, 2018 – Charter Medical Ltd., an innovative single-use medical device manufacturer, announced today that its Advect Fluid Transfer sets (formerly known as Cell Therapy Fluid Transfer Sets) are now FDA 510(k) cleared and CE Marked. They are available in the U.S. and EU and are intended for sterile transfer of bone marrow mononuclear cells from one container to another.
