Discover the possibilities of stem cells for the
future of medicine. Umbilical cord blood,
umbilical cord tissue, placenta tissue provide
infinite possibilities for the future of medicine.
What is the difference between Hematopietic stem cells and Mesenchymal stem cells? Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can be found in tissues all over the body.
What are they?
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide to produce more itself.
Umbilical cord blood is a source of stem cells when a baby is born. This cord blood, along with the cord tissue itself and the placenta, is typically discarded after the birth is complete.
Learn more about Mesenchymal stem cells, their ability to differentiate into a variety of cell types, possible uses to treat diseases and illnesses and more.
Stem cell lingo can be a challenge. Check out our stem cell vocabulary cheat sheet that you can keep by your side as you do your cord blood banking research.
HLA typing helps create a successful stem cell transplant, through bone marrow or cord blood, by making sure the donor's and patient's genetic code match. Learn more about the transplant process.
