Uses & Safe Storage of Cord Blood Cells
It is found
that there are many people suffering from Leukemia and Anemia. Leukemia
is a condition in which the patient suffers from excess blood cell production
and Anemia is a condition in which the patient suffers from lack of blood
cell production. In both these conditions the cord blood cell has to be
If there is no infection in the umbilical cord then blood from the cord is taken and stored for future use. This serves the purpose when there is a need for the replacement of the stem cells in our body. Cord blood cells are taken very easily by just clamping the umbilical cord and then taking out the blood from the cord. The blood is taken only after diagnosing the blood and the umbilical cord for any possible infections. The blood thus taken in stored in the blood bank in the temperature that is required for proper storage.
blood cells thus taken can be stored in any type of blood bank whether
it is private or public. The cord blood cell that is stored in a public
blood bank is available for use for the public who are in need of the
cord blood cell. In a private bank the cord blood cell that is stored
is used primarily for the purpose of the donor and his family. In case
of scarcity for a particular type of cord blood cell it is not easy for
the public to get from a private bank without the consent of the donor.
Special banks for the purpose of storing cord blood cells are available
throughout the world. The cord blood cell bank ensures the quality of
the cord blood that is stored in its bank prior to storing it.
