Only Patented Cord Lining Breakthrough Technology

over 40 countries Patent protection guaranteed

Exclusive and Patented Technology
available exclusively in Cordlife Hong Kong

More than 20 years ago, bone marrow was found to contain MSC then Wharton’s Jelly from the umbilical cord was found to contain MSC as well. More recently, a team of award-winning doctor and scientist from Singapore made significant inroad in the world with the discovery of two powerful stem cell types, MSC and EC, from cord lining. Together, the Cambridge and Stanford University trained duo developed a unique technology known as CellOptima, designed to harvest and multiply stem cells from cord lining. This revolutionary discovery subsequently led the team to receive more than 40 patent grants from 40 countries including United States, Europe, China, Singapore and Hong Kong. These patents prohibit anybody other than the patent owner from harvesting stem cells from cord lining.

Unlike conventional technology that can harvest Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) only, Cordlife’s exclusive patented breakthrough technology can isolate and expand not just Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) but also Epithelial Stem Cells (EpSCs) from your baby’s umbilical cord tissue. With CellOptima, you can give your family that additional protection coverage that you have always wanted. This technology is only available at Cordlife.

CellOptima Assurances for you and your Family

Optimal Condition Assurance

Using CellOptima proprietary cell biomarker verification, your baby’s cord lining will be tested after 4 weeks of cryopreservation. During this process, sample segments of the frozen cord lining will be thawed and MSC and/or EC will be harvested according to your choice of storage plan. This verification step is important as it helps ensure that your baby’s cord lining has been properly stored and can be used for future medical treatments. The objective of this process is to validate the following:

  • Cell type/s confirmation using MSC and/or EC biomarkers
  • Cell viability
  • Cell proliferation also known as the ability to multiply further
  • Cord lining sterility

Usability Assurance

Both MSC and EC harvested with CellOptima have been used successfully in human clinical applications. This gives you peace of mind knowing that what you are storing today, can really be used in the future to help your family.

Technology Accessibility Assurance

As long as you remain a cord lining client of Cordlife, you are a guaranteed member of Global Cord Registry. As a member, you will have automatic access to CellOptima for the isolation and expansion of MSC and/or EC to support medical treatments. This membership is only granted to Cordlife clients in Hong Kong.

Explant Purity & Dual Source Storage Assurance

If you choose to extract stem cells now from your baby’s cord lining whether MSC, EC or both for long-term storage, you will automatically enjoy complimentary storage of the cord lining in its original unexpanded form. This gives your family double access to both expanded stem cells which are “treatment-ready” as well as unmanipulated cord lining that can be used for multiple treatments and possibly the extraction of other cell types not identifi ed today. In addition to CellOptima proprietary cell biomarker verifi cation, the tests below will be done on the expanded stem cells to ensure that they are viable and safe for use.

  • Count of cells
  • Cell sterility testing
  • Endotoxin analysis
  • Mycoplasma analysis

What makes CellOptima special?

CellOptima is an original invention from Singapore. Patent protection of CellOptima has been granted by many countries because the technology is novel, first-of-its-kind and useful. All patents granted for CellOptima prevents other companies from harvesting stem cells from cord lining.

Why do parents save their baby's cord blood and cord lining?

Rich stem cell sources

Umbilical cord blood and cord lining contain more primitive stem cells than any other source, making it more powerful.

Proven to be transplantable

Cord blood can be used to treat more than 113 diseases, and 60,000 cord blood transplants have been performed worldwide.

Untapped clinical potential

Researchers around the world are learning how to use stem cells to treat more diseases and repair damaged cells.

Therapy alternative for families

The stem cells you stored are a perfect match for your baby and can also be used to treat other members of your family.

 Lifetime medical resources

If properly stored, stem cells can be kept indefinitely and can be retrieved whenever you need them.
