Cord Blood Banking


“By choosing Cord for Life® you are assured that you will have the highest quantity and quality of stem cells available when you need them most.”


You have one chance to bank your newborn’s stem cells, so you’ll want to be sure you make the right choice.  At Cord for Life®, we’re here to help with unbiased advice about cord blood banking options for your baby.

When choosing a cord blood bank, your top priority is getting the highest number of stem cells possible.  Since cord blood stem cells don’t regenerate, there is only a certain number in each collection.

It’s our job to get as many of these stem cells out of your newborn’s cord blood as possible.   This is where the processing method matters.   Naturally, every cord blood bank claims their process is the best and their yield is the highest.  We’re here to help you understand the differences in cord blood processing methods and what really matters.

Unbiased researchers from the Newcastle Centre for Cord Blood, Institute of Human Genetics, asked themselves the same questions you have about which processing method was best.  They published their findings in the International Journal of Stem Cells, concluding that our method outperformed hetastarch, a first generation technology used by many cord blood banks.

We know there is a lot to think about during your pregnancy.  If you are thinking about any product claim made about stem cells in the cord blood industry, always ask for published research in peer-reviewed journals, like the International Journal of Stem Cells, to back-up marketing claims about stem cell yields!
