Advantages of Collecting Cord Blood

After a baby’s birth the umbilical cord will be clamped and the blood in the cord will be drained into a special bag.

This process does not harm the baby or the mother in any way as the collection is a simple process performed after the birth. This blood will then be tested, typed and stored in special conditions to be retrieved when required.

Cord blood has been found to be a rich source of stem cells. The current form of treatment for stem cell related diseases is a bone marrow transplant.

This is a tedious process and it is difficult to find a matching donor. Cord blood collection is simple and safe and it can be preserved for long time to be used quickly when required.
