  • What is it?

    Umbilical cord blood is found inside the baby’s umbilical cord. It contains many of the nutrients and oxygen that the baby needs to grow. However, it is also a very rich source of stem cells. Cryo-save scientists have shown that these stem cells are some of the earliest adult stem cells known in the human system and have been grown into many different tissues such as liver, pancreas, nervous tissues, blood vessels, blood and immune system.
  • How is it used?

    Treatments with cord blood stem cells are one of the major successes of modern medicine. Over 70 routine therapies and around another 15 clinical trials are current applying cord blood stem cells in hospital based treatments. Over 20,000 patients have already been treated with cord blood stem cells for blood system diseases alone. But, new treatments for Cerebral Palsy, Type 1 Diabetes, Thalassaemia, Sickle Cell Anaemia and many other metabolic diseases have also been proven.
  • How are they processed?

    Cryo-Save has worked with leading companies to select a rapid clean and safe system to process the stem cells out of umbilical cord blood. This means Cryo-Save can store your child’s stem cells for at least 20 long years safely in its freezing system. Company's research and development program means that your stem cells will be stored to the best possible specifications, now and in the future.
  • How is it done?

    After your baby is born, at no risk to you, or your baby, the obstetrician or midwife can use Cryo-Save's specially designed collection kit and in less than 3 minutes it is possible to collect your child’s cord blood. The kit is sent by special courier to Company's state-of-the-art laboratories for processing by it's specially trained staff, to the highest possible quality.

  • What is it?

    Umbilical cord connects the baby to the placenta in the mother’s womb. It allows the blood to carry oxygen to the baby. Originally, it was thought that the cord was only holding the blood vessels. However, scientists showed that the tissue between the skin and the blood vessels – called “Wharton’s Jelly” – is one of the human body’s richest sources of a stem cell known as “Mesenchymal Stem Cells” (MSC). However, scientists have also shown that other areas of the Umbilical Cord have progenitor cells which are useful for regenerating tissues after damage.
  • How is it used?

    MSC’s are found in several body tissues including bone marrow, but not as rich a source as Umbilical Cord. However, already, MSC’s have reached hospital treatments for heart problems, bowel disease, bone, cartilage, ulcers and other clinical interventions. They have also been used in combination with Umbilical Cord Blood as a dual therapy to reduce immune system complications.
  • How are they processed?

    Cryo-Save has developed its own proprietary process to take the Cord and store it in a low temperature system, which still allows it to be unfrozen and processed into not only MSC’s but also still make available all the other useful progenitor/tissue cells, which themselves might be used for therapies, or, for medical diagnosis. Cryo-Save is the first company in the world that started offering the cord tissue storage and follows every European Parliament GMP level regulations.
  • How is it done?

    After your baby is born, at no risk to you, or your baby, the obstetrician or midwife can cut the cord and put it into our specially designed kit. The kit is sent by special courier to Cryo-Save's state-of-the-art laboratories where it will be quickly processed and frozen. With its own in-house technology, Cryo-Save will store your cord, making it available to you later if required.
