NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Celmatix, a next-generation women’s health company, announced that Lori Batta, a seasoned healthcare executive with more than 25 years of experience, has been promoted to the role of Chief Commercial Officer (CCO). This announcement comes on the heels of the recent news that the company’s Fertilome® genetic test has received full regulatory approval by the New York State (NYS) Department of Health (DOH) Clinical Laboratory Evaluation Program (CLEP), becoming the first multigene panel test for reproductive conditions to receive this approval.
In her newly expanded role, Batta will be responsible for the successful execution of the company's commercial strategy both organically and through strategic alliances for both the Fertilome test and the Polaris® analytics platform, as well as helping to evaluate opportunities for international expansion.

She has also held senior roles at MDR Specialty Pharmacy, EMD Serono, and Novartis.
“In Lori’s first 12 months with the company, she has already played a significant role in guiding our company through the initial commercial launch of our Fertilome test, laying a solid foundation for future growth,” said Piraye Yurttas Beim, PhD, Founder and CEO of Celmatix. “Now that we have full regulatory approval for the test, we will be ramping our commercial efforts in 2018.
