Stem Cells Banking
  • with people being increasingly afflicted by blood
    and immune system disorders, it is time to take a
    serious look at stem cell banking and how stem
    cells may change outcomes in disease prevention
    and treatment.
  • Stem cells are found in blood in the umbilical
    cord and placenta after the birth of the baby.
    Since the umbilical cord is the direct connection
    between mother and baby during pregnancy, the
    blood present in it is rich in stem cells that
    can be harvested for future use. Stem cells are
    used to treat over 80 diseases, and they may be
    taken from donors in the immediate family or a
    suitable anonymous match.

Why Stem Cell Banking?
  • Banking stem cells provides a reliable backup
    solution for future health issues that your baby
    may face. Cord blood cells are viable for use
    even after years have elapsed after collection,
    and by their very nature, they are less likely to
    cause a rejection during transplants because they
    seldom attack foreign substances, the way stem
    cells from bone marrow may.
  • Cord blood is the blood in your baby's umbilical
    cord. It contains stem cells that can grow into
    blood vessels, organs, and tissues. Your baby's
    cord blood can be collected at birth and stored
    for future use.

Advantages of Saving Stem Cells
  • 1. Save lives without hassle The umbilical
    cord which connects the mother and the baby also
    nourishes the baby in the womb. The cord and the
    blood inside it can be easily collected at the
    time of birth once the baby is separated. It is a
    safe and painless procedure and does not pose any
    risk either to the baby or the mother.

Advantages of Saving Stem Cells
  • 2. Cord blood transplant is regarded as a
    standard treatment for around 80 life-threatening
    disorders like lymphoma, leukemia and myeloma. A
    perfect match is a perfect chance of saving you
    Your babys cryopreserved cord blood stem cells
    will be a perfect match for your baby and also a
    ready source of genetically related stem cells
    for immediate family members.

Advantages of Saving Stem Cells
  • 3. Stem cells are known to replicate and renew
    themselves as well as differentiate and multiply
    into different types of cells. This unique
    ability to regenerate and repair damaged parts of
    the body has helped to create a potential
    treatment option of regenerative medicine. Cord
    blood is a rich source of hematopoietic stem
    cells which can be easily collected, processed
    and cryopreserved. Banking these precious stem
    cells at the time of birth offers a life-saving
    treatment option if ever required in the future.

  • With some of the advanced technology such as cord
    blood collected after childbirth, stem cell
    isolation, processing of stem cells and newer
    applications using these stored stem cells has
    made stem cell banking a promising proposition to
    safeguard the health of not only the child but
    also the entire family.
