Umbilical cord blood banking has been in the limelight for the last few years. It has become widely popular among expecting parent as a way to safeguard their new-born’s future health. We at Mycord believe that the decision to preserve your child’s umbilical cord blood and the stem cells within is one of the best decisions you could ever make. That is why we offer the very best umbilical cord blood pool banking services in Gurgaon.
Once you subscribe to our service, we collect the umbilical cord right after the delivery of your new-born is completed. It is then sent for processing and cryopreservation. But before that, the umbilical cord blood is collected and tested in our state-of-the-art laboratory to gauge its viability. It is then labelled accordingly to ensure that the sample belongs to the right client. The cord blood and the umbilical cord itself then undergoes numerous tests and medical procedures to eliminate any and all chances of contamination and to ensure the maximum yield of stem cells.
At this stage, the umbilical cord is further processed and all relevant components are extracted, leaving only the cord lining. The various components except the cord blood are then washed with buffer solution and divided into smaller portions. They are next decontaminated and cryoprotectant is added to the sample to protect it from the extreme temperatures of cryopreservation.
But before the cord blood is preserved, several tests are performed to check the viability and the cell growth rate. If everything checks out, it is then transferred into cryovials, ready to be cryopreserved. After the cryoprotectant is added, the samples stored in cryovials are then gradually cooled down using a controlled-rate freezer to preserve the viability of the stem cells. The cryovials are then carefully transferred to an anti-contamination vapour phase liquid nitrogen storage system at temperatures less an -190°C, for long term storage.
After successfully collection, processing, and preserving your new-born’s umbilical cord blood and cord blood stem cells, Mycord Gurgaon will provide you with a preservation certificate. This certificate will include important information such as the sample details, cell counts, preservation date, and much more. This is how Mycord Gurgaon offers the very best in umbilical cord blood banking.
