How Banking Works
Cord Lining

Why Bank Umbilical Cord Lining

When you bank the umbilical cord lining, you are banking the stem cells found in it. The patented technology available at Cordlife allows the isolation of EpSCs and MSCs from the umbilical cord lining. In contrast, when you bank cord blood, you are banking stem cells found in it which are mostly hematopoietic (or blood forming) stem cells.

Storing both cord blood and umbilical cord lining will allow maximum recovery of all types of stem cells, thus increasing one’s options for possible therapeutic applications in the future. The patented technology provided by Cordlife allows isolation and expansion of EpSCs and MSCs, two types of stem cells found in the umbilical cord lining but not present in cord blood.

By storing a combination of HSCs, MSCs and EpSCs, you are availing your child to be part of a medical revolution with the access to the growing applications of stem cells and the therapeutic potential that they hold. These cells, being able to be collected at birth only, are the youngest and most potent cells available.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)

Epithelial Stem Cells (EpSCs)

Patented Technology only at Cordlife

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 cord lining. With CellOptima, you can give your family that additional protection coverage that you have always wanted. This technology is only available at Cordlife. Only Coldlife Hong Kong can store EpSC. Other cord banks cannot get EpSC in the future.
