Expert Industry Knowledge and Onsite Research

Our team of leading scientists have also developed an effective method to extract and store viable mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from umbilical cord tissue. These stem cells are being studied for potentially groundbreaking future applications in bone, cartilage, tendon and neuron regeneration.

Saving both cord blood and cord tissue stem cells gives your family the opportunity to access current and future therapies.
