Life's tough but we are built tougher!

Every baby is born with the strength to defeat over 80 major illnesses, but they can’t harness it unless we make the choice to safeguard their health for good.

Fighting the nasties starts from Day One with your child’s cord blood stem cells.

Cord blood packs a punch!

The umbilical cord is a tube-like structure that connects the foetus to the placenta in the mother’s womb. It provides oxygen and nutrients and also helps to remove waste from the baby.

Cord blood, which is also called ‘placental blood’, is blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta following the birth of a baby and after the umbilical cord is cut post-delivery.

Cord blood is a rich source of Haematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs) which are responsible for replenishing blood and regenerating the immune system. HSCs are known as ‘precursor cells’ as they have the unique ability to differentiate into the different types of cells found in the body.

Why save cord blood?

1 in 217 persons1 will need stem cells for treatment in his/her lifetime.                                  
In Singapore, 40% - 60% of patients2 who require stem cell transplants are unable to find a suitable match from bone marrow donors or public cord blood banks each year. The odds of finding a match within the same racial group is only 1 in 20,0003.
Cord blood does not require a perfect match between donor and patient, making it easier to find a suitable match within the family.4
Cord blood stem cells as regenerative medicine.
Cord blood stem cells are increasingly being used and trialed as an alternative in regenerative medicine to repair or replace damaged or diseased tissue and organs.
1 in 3 persons5 will benefit from regenerative medicine therapy.                                  
Own stem cells required. Regenerative therapies usually require the patient’s own stem cells for safety reasons.
