Impact. Delivered ~4,000 patient treatments, while establishing the foundation of Vineti's future platform.


Two pharmaceutical manufacturers are competing to get FDA approval for the first cell therapy for leukemia, a blood cancer. The larger pharma company opts to build their own software solution. The smaller company partners with Vineti. At a small clinical trial scale, the logistical complexity of a cell therapy treatment can be managed with heavy manual coordination. In order to scale commercially, that logistical complexity requires automation and tracking in order to safely scale (and therefore be FDA approved) as a commercial product.
