Cord Blood Banking
Cord blood is basically that blood which is left in the umbilical cord and placenta after delivering a baby. Upon the child’s birth, the umbilical cord is clamped & cut and the blood remaining in the cord & placenta is drawn from the cord into the collection bag using a surgical needle.
Despite the seemingly small volume of the collected blood, it contains millions of stem cell that can help in the treatment of various life-threatening disease. Thus, it is these stem cells that Cryoviva extracts and preserve for potential future use in the treatment of various disease or medical conditions.
Just like normal blood cord blood also contains red cells, white cells, platelets, and plasma. But the main difference between cord blood and the mother’s own blood is the foetal blood is abundant in the hematopoietic stem cell which goes on to compose the blood & immune system. These hematopoietic stem cells are isolated and stored while preserving the cord blood.
Cord tissue is an insulating material or the Wharton’s jelly which surrounds the vessels of the umbilical cord. When a baby is delivered, the umbilical cord is clamped and cut, and a section of the cord having tissues is saved. These cord tissues contain millions of different types of stem cells that go on to help in the treatment of a person’s nervous system, sensory organs, circulatory tissues, skin, bone, cartilage, etc. Cryoviva provides the facility of collecting and preserving these stem cells for potential future use in the treatment of disease or other medical conditions.
Cord tissue having clear jelly-like appearance contains fats, white cells, and stem cells. It serves as insulation for the two arteries and one vein that is found in the umbilical cord. While cord tissues contain epithelial & endothelial stem cells, it is a greater source of mesenchymal stem cells as well. These stem cells have the potential to become the tissues that compose the nervous system, sensory organs, circulatory tissues, skin, bone, cartilage, and more.
