Fenlu Zhu, PhD, professor of medicine in the Division of Hematology and Oncology and assistant director of the Lymphocyte Propagation Laboratory, and Bryon Johnson, PhD, professor of pediatrics in the division of Hematology and Oncology, explain how the CliniMACS Prodigy® device enables the cancer team to conduct the CAR-T cell immunotherapy through a contained, cell-filtering desktop system. The device collects the patient’s own T cells and augments them with cancer-fighting genes, producing new cells ready to be infused back into the bloodstream within 14 days. The entire process is performed in a laboratory on the Froedtert & MCW academic medical center campus, saving precious time for the patient.
