Baby Cord Blood Bank

Having a child is a miraculous experience; most believe it’s the happiest day of their lives. There are a lot of things you need to know about for the birth of your child, and one thing every parent should know is the option of baby cord blood banking. At Health Banks, we provide baby cord blood banking services, ensuring that the cord blood and tissue are saved for future use. Why is this important? Cord blood and tissue could be vital in protecting your baby from some serious diseases later in life.

As a baby cord blood bank, we provide kits for safe and sterile collection, which is done by the doctor or nurse right after the baby is born. Cord blood is an amazing source of stem cells, similar to the stem cells that can be found in an adult’s bone marrow. When taken from the umbilical cord, these stem cells are easier to gather, and being younger cells, they can replicate for a longer period of time, so you can get more out of the same amount of source cells.

Cord blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma as well as the stem cells. The young stem cells that get stored by our baby cord blood bank can differentiate (change into other cells) as well as replicate themselves, which can be very helpful with treating medical conditions, either through transplantation or cell therapy. And since they are from the baby’s own body, they are a guaranteed match if your child needs to use those stem cells later in life. With a baby cord blood bank, you don’t need to wait for donor.

We are a very progressive baby cord blood bank. Previously cord blood was only stored, but with access to umbilical tissue stem cells as well, a different type of cell can be stored called mesenchymal stem cells (MSC.) While cord tissue usage is still in the research and experimental phase, it has a lot of potential for its ability to differentiate into various tissues and organ cells including cardiac, nerve, cartilage/bones, and muscle.

What can be done with your baby’s cord blood and tissue at our baby cord blood bank? The stored stem cells and tissue can be used in the future for medical issues that could come up for your child. With access to clean young stem cells, there are more options for treatment, especially if traditional treatments fail or your child requires a transplant. With the ability to differentiate into many different types of body cells, stem cells are very versatile for therapies that help repair tissues, organs, and blood vessels.

If you have multiple children, it’s also important to store each child’s cord blood and tissue. If additional resources are needed and the child’s stored cells have been used, the blood cells or tissue from siblings make for very viable donor options.

HealthBanks is the only US based company that offers both stem cell and immune cell banking services, and our cell banking is viable for all members of your family. We use the latest and most premium technologies to ensure that the cells from your baby’s cord are properly processed and preserved. We use the AXP™ II System, BioArchive™ Storage System, and the MCASS™ Immune Cell Processing System for high quality processing and years of safe, uninterrupted, storage.

We are invested in your long-term wellbeing. Contact us today to learn more.

Disclaimer: The use of cord blood and immune cells is determined by the treating physician and manufacturer of the final products and is influenced by many factors, including the patient's medical condition, the characteristics of the sample, and whether the immune cells should be further modified or expanded. Cord blood has established uses in transplant medicine; however, its use in regenerative medicine is still being researched. There is no guarantee that potential medical applications being studied in the laboratory or clinical trials will become available. Cord tissue use is still in early research stages, and there is no guarantee that treatments using cord tissue will be available in the future. Cord tissue is stored whole. Additional processing prior to use will be required to extract and prepare any of the multiple cell types from cryopreserved cord tissue. Immune cells has established uses in certain blood cancer treatment; however, its use in solid cancer is still being researched. There is no guarantee that treatments being studied in the laboratory, clinical trials, or other experimental treatments will be available in the future.

HealthBanks cryopreserves immune cells that have been collected from an individual for potential future cellular therapy use. HealthBanks does not provide medical advice, treatment or care. The use of cryopreserved cells for future immunotherapies is not guaranteed. Much is yet unknown about the future of immunotherapy and the immune cells that have been cryopreserved. The use of cryopreserved cells by commercial manufacturers for CAR-T therapy production is not currently approved by the FDA. There is active research ongoing, however, there is no guarantee that your cryopreserved cells will have a future therapeutic use. Only your health care professional can help you evaluate whether your cells might be used and if so, how they might be used. HealthBanks and its shareholders, directors, officers, agents, employees, affiliates, network of providers and provider facilities, will not be liable to you or any other party for claims relating to sample collection or if your cells cannot be used, or if any harm, injury, damage or loss results from the use of your cells.
