CordLife collects, processes and stores cord blood stem cells which may later become potential source material for lifesaving treatment. They provide families with high quality cord blood processing and storage services to protect their children's cord blood stem cells.

Doctors have used cord blood stem cells to treat more than 14,000 patients suffering from over 80 diseases including certain cancers and bone marrow failure syndromes, inborn errors of metabolism, blood disorders and immunodeficiencies.
