Power of the Placenta

Placental Stem Cells

Too Precious to Throw Away

Discover the power of placental stem cells + cord blood stem cells

Your baby’s umbilical cord and your placenta are both rich in stem cells that have life-saving potential. Collecting and banking these precious stem cells can offer your family a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take advantage of today’s treatments and ongoing developments in the field of stem cell research.

Placental Stem Cells

Placental blood is richer than cord blood in stem cells that have life-saving potential.1 Placental blood also contains a type of stem cell that’s being explored for the treatment of:

  • Immune disorders2,3
  • Spinal cord injury2
  • Blood cancers3
  • Blood disorders3
  • Scarring in the lungs (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis)4
  • Lack of oxygen to the brain at birth (Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy)5

Pioneers in Retrieving Placental Stem Cells

You Have One Chance to Secure This Life-Saving Potential

Every stem cell banking company will tell you the more stem cells you bank, the better. But LifebankUSA is the only company to have pioneered the advanced technology to collect both placental stem cells used for today’s treatments as well as the unique placental stem cells that can be used for future medical advancements. We discovered unique stem cells that remained trapped in the blood vessels of the placenta, so we created an innovative retrieval method to collect those cells. Collecting more stem cells means that your child or a close family member (blood relative) could benefit from multiple life-saving treatments well into adulthood.
