Private Cord Blood Banking

If you’re considering storing stem cells from your newborn’s cord blood, you only have one opportunity to do so – immediately after your child is born.

As you make this important decision, we’re here to provide unbiased advice about things to consider.  Simply put, when choosing a cord blood bank, your top priority should be to ensure your child’s cord blood is safe and effective in the event of a transplant.  In general this means extracting as many stem cells as possible, while  removing most of the red blood cells.

Since there is only a certain amount of stem cells in each collection, it’s important to choose the most effective processing method .  Naturally, every cord blood bank claims their process is the best and their yield is the highest.  We’re here to help you understand the differences in cord blood processing methods and what really matters.

Unbiased researchers from the Newcastle Centre for Cord Blood, Institute of Human Genetics, asked themselves which processing method was best.  They published their findings in the International Journal of Stem Cells, concluding that our method outperformed hetastarch, a first generation technology used by many cord blood banks.

We know there is a lot to think about during your pregnancy.  If you are thinking about any product claim made about stem cells in the cord blood industry, always ask for published research in peer-reviewed journals, like the International Journal of Stem Cells, to back-up marketing claims about stem cell yields!

Stem cells perform three important functions:  1.  They renew themselves; 2. Differentiate into other cells; and 3. Renew other cells. Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) can restore the immune system following  chemotherapy or radiation for leukemia, lymphoma, and other life-threatening diseases. Historically, HSCs have only been available from bone marrow and peripheral blood transplants.  As cord […]
