Latest technology for automated cord blood processing
Cordlife invests in the advanced AXP® II system which is capable of recovering more than 97% of viable CD34+ stem cells, higher than other available processing systems.1 The processed cord blood is then placed into a fully programmable and automated cryoprotectant infuser that allows for the consistent preparation of stem cells for cryopreservation.
