Cordlife Phils. Inc. is the FIRST to bring your family Sepax® 2 – the Standard in Cord Blood Banking.
Stem cell isolation is a critical step in cord blood banking. It affects the number of stem cells that can be harvested or recovered from the cord blood. Cell recovery rates are critical because a higher number of stem cells could enhance the success of the transplant or treatment. That's why Cordlife upgraded from processing cord blood manually to using a fully automated cord blood processing technology to help you maximize your investment. Cordlife is the FIRST cord blood bank in Philippines to offer the world's most preferred fully automated cord blood processing technology, known as Sepax® 2.
Sepax® 2 is a Swiss-made and U.S. FDA-cleared device offers safe and sterile technology to recover as high as 99.46%* of stem cells* from cord blood; up to 52%* higher than other processing methods. The system is functionally closed which ensures the sterility of the cord blood by eliminating exposure to air contaminants.
Cordlife is the FIRST private cord blood bank in the Philippines to bring you Sepax® 2!
Sepax®2 is a Swiss-made automated processing technology and U.S. FDA-cleared device that can recover as high as 99.46%1 of Total Nucleated Cells (TNC) from cord blood; up to 57%2 cell count higher than other processing methods.
Features of Sepax® 2 and what it means to You, as a Parent
