Why save Cord Blood

Stem cells are the body’s “master” cells because they have the unique ability to replicate and differentiate into other types of cells in our body.

Cord blood is a rich source of haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), which are primarily responsible for replenishing blood and regenerating the immune system in our body. The hematopoietic stem cells differentiates into all other blood cells.

Only one chance to store

The only time to collect your baby’s cord blood is immediately after birth – so do not miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!


The best cord blood is one’s own

Your baby’s cord blood will always be a perfect match to him or her. It is readily available for a number of conditions if needed in the future.


Benefit from emerging applications

Be the first to take advantage of the latest developments. To date, cord blood has been used to treat nearly 80 diseases1 with over 35,000 cord blood transplants2 done over 20 years. At StemLife, we have done 15 cord blood transplants in 14 years.


Protecting your child against the unpredictable

The lifetime probability of an individual needing a haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) transplant increases tremendously to 1:200 by age of seventy3.


Protection for your family too!

60% higher chance4 of locating a matching cord blood unit in the family versus bone marrow.
