At Americord, researching and developing new and better ways to serve the families who use our cord blood bank is a high priority. We have devolved a way to harvest stem cells from the placenta, in addition to the umbilical cord blood. Americord is the only cord blood bank to offer this service.
Our placenta tissue banking service is a new technique that we have developed. The placenta, which nourishes your baby all through your pregnancy, can also be incredibly valuable immediately after your baby is born since it contains vast quantities of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Placenta tissue banking, like cord tissue banking, enables you to preserve MSCs for future medical use.
Research has shown that placenta cord blood has more stem cells than the umbilical cord blood. When you choose Placenta Tissue banking as an addition to preserving baby cord blood, you are selecting the method that saves the most stem cells possible, ensuring that they are there if your child or family member ever needs them. We are continually innovating cord blood banking to help improve the lives of you and your family!
