What is Cord Tissue?
A newborn’s umbilical cord tissue contains several different types of cells, each with different potential uses.
Because cord tissue research is still in its early stages, CBR stores your baby's cord tissue whole, preserving all of the cells within it for your family's potential future use. The cord tissue is cryogenically stored for long-term preservation so it can be processed to extract the cells needed using the best technology of the future.
CBR Saves the Entire Cord Tissue for the Widest Range of Treatment Options
A newborn’s umbilical cord tissue is comprised of several different cell types and each cell type has different potential.
Damaged tissue, ligaments
Contains unique and powerful stem cells that may help repair and heal the body in different ways than cord blood. These cells create structural and connective tissue and are currently being evaluated in 30+ clinical trials to treat heart disease, stroke and spinal cord damage, among others.
Saving cord tissue with CBR provides more options
Three key cell types from six cord tissue regions:
- Mesenchymal stem cells
- Endothelial cells
- Epithelial cells
- Wharton’s jelly
- Intervascular region
- Perivascular region
- Subamniotic region
- Blood vessels
- Amniotic epithelium
All cell types from a variety of tissues are being researched to potentially treat 11+ therapeutic areas:
