3 Ways that Lifebank® Maximizes the Potential to Save Lives
Did you know that Lifebank® can help maximize the potential of cord blood? There are a number of reasons that Lifebank® is the smart choice for cord blood banking, but there are three that stand out:
1. The Power of Placental and Cord Blood Banking:
Lifebank offers placental blood banking as well as cord blood banking. Banking placental blood in addition to cord blood can preserve 60% – 70% more CD34+ stem cells than cord blood banking alone. This is important because transplanting more stem cells increases the probability of transplant success and survival.
2. More Cells for Therapeutic Treatments and Potential Developments in Regenerative Medicine:
Banking placental blood in addition to cord blood can also provide more CD105+ mesenchymal-like stem cells compared to banking cord blood alone.† This is why 50% of Lifebank® customers bank placental blood and cord blood.

3. The Purest Cord Blood Bank Processing:
Lifebank® offers transplant-ready stem cells that are available when you need them. We achieve the purest collection of cord blood stem cells through our unique red blood cell depletion process, resulting in over a 99% purity level. Lifebank’s red blood cell removal process eliminates the need for additional manipulation and preparation of your baby’s stem cells, should a transplant ever be needed. Our first commitment has always been to provide the best possible service to the parents who choose Lifebank.
In the end, choosing the right cord blood bank for your family is an important decision. Lifebank® is here to help you every step of the way. Call us at 1-877-543-3226 to find out more cord blood, placental blood, and tissue banking.
†Studies suggest that mesenchymal-like cells may prove to be useful in regenerative medicine as they have the ability to differentiate into several other cell types. Regenerative medicine is an emerging field and the quantity of mesenchymal cells necessary for treatment is not yet known. Treatments using mesenchymal cells for regenerative medicine are investigational only and are not approved therapies.
Cord blood and placenta-derived stem cells banked with Lifebank® are approved therapies only for reconstituting blood (the reformation of blood cellular components) for autologous use or in first or second degree blood relatives.
