  • Cordlife Philippines Launches Affordable Umbilical Cord Banking Services

    Umbilical cord banking shows greater promise in future therapeutic applications.
  • <>

    “Banking the umbilical cord, which is rich in EpSCs and MSCs, will allow the child and his/her family to have ready access to a lot more medical options in the future,” commented Dr. Faundo.

    To facilitate collection, a personalized kit will be provided to umbilical cord banking customers which can be brought to the hospital during delivery. The specimen will be picked up by Cordlife within 24 hours from actual time of delivery and, afterwards, processed and stored in cryogenic storage tanks at its UP-Ayalaland Technohub facility in Quezon City within 48 hours.

    Looking forward
    Apart from its highly-secure world-class facility which operates 365 days a year, customers also benefit from Cordlife’s use of CellOptima™, an advanced technology for stem cell isolation. Developed and patented by Singapore-based clinician-scientists and exclusively available at Cordlife, the technology can isolate and expand EpSCs and MSCs from the umbilical cord lining.

    Moreover, unlike other stem cell banks, Cordlife cryopreserves stem cells in its original form, allowing superior quality cells to be derived for future medical therapy. This also lets families take advantage of future advancements in stem cell technology.

    Cost
    Cordlife's umbilical cord banking service starts as low as P35,000 (one-time upfront fee for collection, processing and testing), and P8,000 yearly fee. Clients can pay using 0%-interest credit card installments up to 12 months. There are also pre-payment plans available that offer more savings.

    “At the heart of umbilical cord banking is helping parents secure their child’s future well-being,” stated Yee. “Cordlife, with its expertise and access to best-available technology, allows them to do exactly this by preparing for any eventuality and safeguarding their family’s health.”
