In addition to acquiring Silverstone Solutions, BiologicTx has announced the appointment of David S. Jacobs, founder of Silverstone Solutions, as Chief Technology Officer of BiologicTx.  With more than 30 years of experience in high-tech software innovation, including Microsoft's early stages of development, Marimba (now BMC Software), and Macromedia (now Adobe), Mr. Jacobs will be charged with setting the BiologicTx technology agenda, driving key development, and initiating new business expansion opportunities.

David Jacobs stated, "BiologicTx is uniquely positioned to expand the utilization of Matchgrid, giving thousands of patients facing ESRD better options for living donor transplants.  I'm excited by the opportunity to improve and expand BiologicTx technology solutions for all transplant patients.  It is an exceptionally rare opportunity for two industries to join forces to save lives. The software technology and treatment behind this advancement in the transplant community didn't exist ten years ago."

"The acquisition of Silverstone Solutions, combined with the addition of David Jacobs to the BiologicTx team, advances our commitment to Kidney Paired Donation and greatly expands our innovative technology platform immediately and in the future," said Darrin Carrico, President and Co-Founder of BiologicTx.

In addition, Sal Rafanelli, RPh, CEO, and Co-Founder of BiologicTx stated, "At BiologicTx, our focus has always been to provide a better quality of life to our patients.  By combining resources, BiologicTx and Silverstone solutions will be able to integrate our therapy interventions with this life saving technology, providing more options for those suffering from kidney disease."

Todd Krasinsky, RN, Chief Development Officer and Co-Founder of BiologicTx added, "This further confirms our commitment to bring effective solutions to the transplant community.  We are confident that this strategic combination of technology and drug therapies will serve as a paradigm shift in producing accurate and favorable outcome data, while improving efficiencies."
