Cord blood is the blood that remains in the placenta and the umbilical cord after delivery. This blood is considered as waste material and is discarded if not collected.
Haematopoietic stem cells are found in cord blood. These cells have the ability to differentiate into other types of cells of the human blood. Many families choose to store their newborn's cord blood for the potential future use in supporting the treatment of life threatening diseases. 
Lifebank offers the chance to all parents expecting a child to cryopreserve the haematopoietic stem cells from their newborn’s cord blood.
Stem cells can be found in a number of tissues and regenerative organs of the human body, including the umbilical cord and blood and the human skin.
Mesenchymal stem cells can be isolated from umbilical cord tissue. Mesenchymal stem cells comprise a population of stem cells that has been found in the laboratory to be able to differentiate into a number of different cell types, like heart cells, muscle cells and skin cells.
Lifebank provides the chance to its clients to cryopreserve mesenchymal stem cells isolated from their newborn's umbilical cord or from an adult's skin biopsy.
