WHY ARE STEM CELLS SO AMAZING? 

RICH & POWERFUL SOURCE

Cord stem cells are the most powerful cells, undamaged by the ageing process.

FLEXIBLE

Able to replicate, regenerate and differentiate into any kind of specialized cell in the body (including heart, muscles and nerve cells!).

LIFE CHANGING

There is a 1 in 217 chance your child will need a cord blood transplant in their lifetime. Everyday lives are being saved with cord stem cell transplants world-wide.

EXCITING FUTURE

To date millions of blood cell transplants have been done and cord blood stem cells treat over 80 blood related diseases. Latest emerging therapies for cord stem cells include type 1 diabetes, Autism and brain injuries eg. cerebral palsy and many more.

STORING YOUR BABY’S CORD STEM CELLS CAN SAVE YOUR CHILD’S LIFE

As parents, from day one we want to do everything possible to safeguard our children’s future.

WHY CRYOSAVE?

CryoSave is the founding stem cell bank in South Africa. With no public stem cell bank in Africa, the CryoSave laboratory based in Pretoria has been providing access to private stem cell processing and storage services in Southern Africa for the last 20 years.

CryoSave SA is the trusted family stem cell bank in South Africa. CryoSave SA has partnered with PBKM Famicord, the number one cord blood bank in Europe and the 5th biggest in the world. PBKM Famicord offers services in over 20 countries around the world and also has the most experience in the transfer of material for transplantation.

CryoSave is passionate in the pursuit of world class processing:

• Unique in South Africa – Specialised cord blood processing through the Sepax II FAMCORD protocol using a BioSafe Sepax blood processing kit.

• South African market leader – Testing cord tissue stem cells to determine viability by fluorescent staining and photographic evidence of viable tissue stem cells.

The CryoSave laboratory is our state-of-the-art processing and storage facility. The cord blood and tissue are processed according to international standards.

All cord blood samples are processed using an internationally validated processing and cryopreservation protocol.

Viability, cell counts and sterility tests will be conducted on cord stem cells.

The cord blood stem cells and tissue will be kept in a liquid nitrogen storage tank (between -196 and -150 degrees Celsius) inside our secured facility for long term storage.

Established in 1947, AABB (formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks) is an international, not-for-profit association dedicated to the advancements of science and practice of transfusion medicine and related biological therapies. The association is committed to improving health by developing and delivering standards, accreditation and educational programmes and services to optimise patient and donor care and safety.

“The AABB Accreditation procedures are voluntary,” Dr Robert Crookes, Medical Director of CryoSave South Africa explained. “CryoSave South Africa has sought AABB accreditation as this programme assists facilities around the world in achieving excellence by promoting a level of professional and technical expertise that contributes to quality performance and patient safety.”
