The umbilical cord is a harbour of miracles, both during and after pregnancy. Stem cell banking harnesses the potency of the umbilical cord through a unique preservation system that stores your baby’s cord cells to offer tremendous healing benefits for over 80 life-threatening diseases. Cryonine on Cloudnine is a world-class stem cell banking service, enabled by Cryoviva, that provides a superlative ecosystem for end-to-end stem cell preservation. Cryonine allows immediate access during times of need.
Stem cell banking refers to the process of collecting and storing blood from inside the umbilical cord immediately after the birth of a baby. This blood is then processed to extract precious, life-saving stem cells, stored in optimal conditions for future use.
Stem cell preservation can serve as an essential shield against a plethora of life-threatening diseases. This is because blood hosted within the umbilical cord holds a remarkable number of blood-forming stem cells, which can offer therapeutic and healing benefits against over 80 fatal diseases, to not just your baby, but also close family members. In particular, stem cells are powerful in treating diseases requiring stem cell transplants, such as leukaemia, lymphoma, aplastic anaemia, severe sickle disease and severe combined immunodeficiency.
Step 1. Clamping and Cutting
The umbilical cord is cut and clamped.
Step 2. Cord Blood Is Collected
Cord blood is collected by inserting a fine needle inside the cord vein.
Step 3. Cord Blood Is Securely Packed
The blood is drained and secured into a blood bag. It is then transferred to a lab within 24 hours.
Step 4. Sample Quality Is Evaluated
A series of tests are performed to check the quality and integrity of the sample.
Step 5. Stem Cells Are Extracted
Cord blood is sieved by patented technologies to yield the maximum number of stem cells.
Step 6. Stem Cells Are Stored
The filtered stem cells are stored at -196°C for up to 21 years.
