We are stem cell storage facilitators to ensure that your stem cells are stored for medical use, so far more than 35 000 cord blood transplants have been performed worldwide. Stem cells from umbilical cord blood and tissue have successfully been used to treat more than 80 serious diseases, including conditions like leukemia, lymphoma and osteoporosis.
Cord blood and tissue stem cells can be found in a newborn
baby’s umbilical cord and are classified as adult stem cells.
They have the ability to create and regenerate our organs, blood, tissue and immune system, and are responsible for growth and healing throughout our lives.
Umbilical cord stem cells have greater therapeutic potential than bone marrow stem cells. They are
young and active in comparison with stem cells from other sources – ‘a maximum of nine months old’
– which means that they can differentiate faster
Because your baby’s stem cells were collected at birth, they are ready to use if necessary.
Unlike bone marrow, there is no need to take time to locate a possible donor and then determine
whether he or she is still willing and able to donate if required for a transplant
