From day one, StemCord was established to focus on one main objective - the processing and preservation of your baby’s precious cord blood stem cells. We understand that this is a long-term commitment and are dedicated to being your trusted cord blood bank, providing you with the best possible service, now and into the future. The following are just some of the many undisputable advantages that place StemCord above other cord blood banks.
- StemCord is Singapore’s first private cord blood bank that is licensed by the Ministry of Health, Singapore and became operational on 6 March 2002. StemCord adopts the highest standard of quality control in protecting the viability of the stem cell.
- StemCord holds the honour of being the first cord blood bank in Southeast Asia and the only cord blood bank in Singapore accredited by FACT-NetCord. It was awarded the accreditation for the FACT-NetCord International Standards for Cord Blood Collection, Processing, Testing, Banking, Selection and Release of autologous cord blood units.
- StemCord is Singapore’s preferred private cord blood bank as it is the first and one of the largest private cord blood bank in Singapore. As at March 2007, we set a new milestone in Singapore, as we had more than 10,000 stored units of cord blood stored in our laboratory. Our numbers are set to grow as we set up more representative offices in the region.
- StemCord is dedicated to only processing and preservation of cord blood stem cells. While we support research and development efforts, we are not tied, in anyway, to financially risky research ventures that may compromise the integrity and medical excellence of the company. As a company, we are profitable and are able to walk alongside you as your cord blood bank for life.
- The uniqueness of StemCord lies in the fact that its main shareholders are doctors who understand the biology and intricacies of stem cells, and as such, have a better foresight of how stem cells can be best utilised in the future. Just like their medical practices, the clients’ best interests, like the patients’ interests, always come first.
Dependable & Superior Processing and Storage Methods
- StemCord is the only cord blood bank in Singapore that stores cord blood in multiple units. With promising developments in using stem cells in Regenerative Therapy, storing stem cells in multiple units provides the capacity for multiple treatments if needed. Our double-containment system eliminates the potential risk of cross-contamination during long-term storage is provides the most secure, long-term cryogenic storage available.
- StemCord splits the cord blood units into two locations for added security and peace of mind. This can only be achieved with StemCord’s foresight to store the cord blood in multiple cryo units.
