A Community Banking Program for Cordlife Families
Family Protection and Philanthropy Rolled into One
Cordlife Alliance allows members to help one another with their cryopreserved cord blood besides protecting their own family.
WHAT MATTERS MOST
Access to a diverse pool of cord blood units from various Asian countries where Cordlife operates to increase the chance of locating a match of the same race and ethnicity.
Unlimited search for samples during the term of the cord blood banking agreement.
LOW STEM CELL COUNT
Acts as backup security in case the cord blood unit has low stem cell count or in certain conditions that do not meet the standard requirements.
Since every family owns their child's cord blood, they can continue its storage for their own family's use or help another family in need of a matched cord blood and be entitled to reimbursement of the expenses paid for the cord blood banking service.
