Our processes used in order to store cord tissue have been shown to result in the banking of live cells.

We are constantly improving our validation studies in order to further to prove cord tissue samples stored do contain MSCs which will retain their ability to differentiate into many different tissue types including bone, cartilage and fat after the samples have been frozen.
