Stem Cell Preservation

Cord blood banking involves collecting blood left in your newborn's umbilical cord and placenta and storing it for future medical use. Cord blood contains potentially lifesaving cells called stem cells. (The stem cells in cord blood are different from embryonic stem cells.) Stem cells are the building blocks of the blood and immune system. They have the ability to develop into other types of cells, so they can help repair tissues, organs, and blood vessels and can be used to treat a host of diseases.

Cord blood stem cells have been used successfully to treat more than 70 different diseases, including some cancers, blood disorders, and immune deficiencies. Among these are leukemia, aplastic anemia, thalassemia, Hodgkin's disease, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Cord blood transplants are also used to treat rare metabolic disorders that would otherwise be fatal for infants (Krabbe disease and Sanfilippo syndrome).

Cocoon has associated with Cryobanks International India a JV between Lifeforce Cryobanks International USA and RJ Corp founded in 2006. The company is focused on providing high-quality umbilical cord blood stem cell processing, and storage for both private and public donation purposes. Based at Gurgaon with networks in all the towns of India provides a high end processing and storage technology which are approved by International authorities. Cryobanks India has spread beyond the shores to Thailand, UAE, Nepal, Bangladesh and East Africa making it the only India Cord Blood bank available in International Market. Cryobanks India has set up 28,000 square feet, state-of-the-art stem cell processing and banking facility in Gurgaon Haryana. The company is working towards national and international collaborations to provide the “best of class” facilities in stem cell industry in India. Cryobanks India follows the “Closed bag” collection method for harvesting cord blood stem cells which greatly reduces the possibility of contamination of cord blood and uses technology accredited by AABB and other global certifications.

Banking & Benefits:

The primary reason for banking your child’s cord blood – peace of mind – is one any parent can relate to. Parent’s do so much to prepare for their child’s birth and ensure their child’s life will be a healthy, happy one. So is cord blood banking one of the things they ought to consider? To decide, it helps to know something about how the process works, and what cord blood may be able to do (and what it can’t), should they ever need it.

Cord blood comes from a newborn’s umbilical cord and is collected immediately after birth. Once the umbilical cord has been clamped and cut, the remaining blood in the umbilical cord is drawn into a collection bag.

This blood contains powerful stem cells that have been used to regenerate healthy blood and immune systems in more than 30,000 transplants worldwide. Doctors are using cord blood to save lives today and researching cord blood as potential treatment for diseases that currently have no cure.

Yes. Cord blood stem cells are biologically younger and are more flexible compared to adult stem cells from other sources like bone marrow. When saved, they have unique qualities and advantages:

  • Less risk of complications when used in transplants
  • Ability to use one’s own stem cells for conditions that currently lack medical treatment options, also known as "autologous transplantation"
  • Immediately available and can minimize disease progression in early treatment

Preserving them "stops the clock" and protects the cells from aging and being exposed to environmental factors and common viruses that can decrease their function.
