What is Cord Tissue?

Cord tissue is the structural material of the umbilical cord, containing a unique type of stem cell called mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).

MSCs have different capabilities than the hematopoietic stem cells from cord blood. They can rapidly divide and regenerate a variety of different cell types in our bodies, like muscles, nerves and cartilage.

How is Cord Tissue Collected?

Collecting cord tissue is a simple process that occurs right after birth. Once the umbilical cord is cut, your healthcare provider will collect a small segment and place it in a special container.

This procedure is safe, painless, and does not interfere with the birth process or bonding time with the new baby. Instead of being discarded, the cord tissue is preserved, offering a valuable source of stem cells for potential future use.

Benefits of Banking Cord Tissue

Banking your baby's cord tissue offers a range of potential benefits unique to the type of stem cell found in the cord tissue. Here's a detailed look at the benefits:

What is Cord Tissue?

Cord tissue refers to the umbilical cord itself. Traditionally, it was discarded as medical waste after the baby is born. But now, we know that cord tissue is a rich source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MSCs have different capabilities than the hematopoietic stem cells from cord blood. They can rapidly divide and regenerate a variety of different cell types in our bodies, like muscles, nerves and cartilage.

How is Cord Tissue Collected?

When you choose to preserve your newborn’s cord tissue, your delivering healthcare provider will cut a segment of the umbilical cord and place the umbilical cord in a provided collection vessel.

Banking cord tissue does not impact your birthing process. It is a quick and painless procedure that will provide your child and your entire family with lifetime access to a valuable source of stem cells.
