Gurgaon, Haryana (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
Cryobanks International India, a leader in umbilical cord blood stem cell banking In India, has entered into an agreement with Biosafe S. A., Switzerland, which is the industry leader providing an extremely stable platform for processing cord blood utilizing a closed-system technology named SEPAX®. The SEPAX® is a fully automated and sterile stem cell processing equipment that delivers higher yields than are possible using current manual technologies - up to 95%. This eliminates the variability in end-product yields possible due to differences in operator training and abilities. SEPAX® is currently utilized by more than 70% of the public cord blood banks registered with Netcord – the world’s leading organization for facilitating cord blood transplants by providing a channel through which potential patients and public cord blood banks can connect. This advanced technology with proven transplant track-record has been US-FDA approved, CE-marked and accepted by the Japan MHLW (Ministry of Health and Labor Welfare).
Umbilical cord blood is a rich source of stem cells and Cryobanks will facilitate the storage of the cord derived cells and tissue for any family looking to store them for a certain fee – these cells could be of great value to the family if any of them are struck down by blood cancer, thalassemia and requiring a bone marrow transplant. It is also expected that in the future other diseases can also be resolved using cord blood derived stem cells and tissue. A representative of Cryobanks stated that “Expectant parents can save the cord blood and tissue of their baby for a period of 21 years with a small investment that has life-saving potential if the need ever arises. Our bank stores the stem cells in advanced nitrogen vapour tanks at -196 degrees Celsius and has invested in comprehensive monitoring, safety and redundancy systems.
