Cord Blood Banking

Cord Blood Banking

The foundation of stem-cell banking

Collected immediately after birth, your baby’s cord blood is a rich source of stem cells. These unique, powerful cells are used to treat diseases, including leukemia, with clinical trials taking place to explore even more possibilities for improved health.

The Power of Placenta

Unlocking health today — and tomorrow

Placental blood is another significant source of stem cells, including progenitor cells, which are more versatile than the stem cells found in cord blood. Plus, placental tissue contains cells that are of interest in the developing field of regenerative medicine.
