"The entire Houston Methodist Transplant Team has a passion to achieve success for their transplant patients that far exceeds clinical requirements and expectations, it is, in a word, extraordinary," said Darrin Carrico, President of BiologicTx. "We are fortunate to have a partner that has embraced our technology, scientific directors, and clinical services. Dr. Gaber's vision and commitment of his team with BiologicTx will result in numerous transplants for years to come which would not have been possible."

About BiologicTx MatchGrid™
BiologicTx Paired Donation's MatchGrid is an advanced enterprise software application that provides doctors and clinicians with the tools necessary to rapidly and accurately match living organ donors with patients who have willing, healthy, but incompatible donors. Using advanced matching and optimization algorithms, for a single center, MatchGrid can evaluate all potential matches from 2-way all the way through 12-way combinations in minutes or even longer regional chains, saving transplant centers months of work previously required to assess a smaller number of pairs. The software can also optimize the number of transplants for a given pool of donor/recipient pairs, ensuring the maximum number of transplants for the most difficult people to match, with the highest quality matches for each transplant hub in a paired kidney donation network.
BiologicTx® was founded as the first, solely focused infusion and pharmacy provider of biologic and oral transplant therapy management. Since then, BiologicTx has expanded its services to integrate transplant therapies paired with digital health technology, providing a complete representation of the patient's response to therapy. Our team is comprised of dedicated professionals that strive to advance desensitization, immunosuppressive, and rejection treatments worldwide, resulting in progressive and favorable patient outcomes. We deliver efficient, start to finish services that establish therapeutic services in the home and clinic. These services act in concert with the transplant center medical team. In doing so, we provide hope and a better quality of life to our patients. For more information, visit us at: www.BiologicTx.com.
