Kolkata, West Bengal -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/22/2013 -- Cord blood banking in India, also called “placental blood,” is blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta following the birth of a baby. It is a unique and one of its own kind of facility provided in India. During pregnancy, the umbilical cord functions as a lifeline between mother and child. After a baby’s delivery, the cord blood present in the umbilical cord could offer future hope for the child or other members of the family.
At CordLife India, they offer hope for a child and for the family members to fight a number of fatal diseases in the future. The procedure only takes about three minutes and does not alter the birthing process in any way. It can be done with either a vaginal or caesarean delivery.
The collection, processing and storage of cord blood banking involve immediately clamping and cutting the cord after the delivery of a baby. The caregiver then collects the umbilical cord blood by inserting a needle into the cord vein, and drains the same into a blood bag.
Since their inception, CordLife India has established a quality system and proven track record and has emerged as a reliable cord blood banking services provider. Their capability was recognized when their facility in Singapore became the first private cord blood bank in Southeast Asia to be accredited by AABB, the world's gold standard in private cord blood banking.
