Through cord blood banking, families now have a chance to survive fatal genetic diseases like leukemia and other blood-related diseases.

Cordlife Group Limited is an international provider of umbilical cord blood and cord lining services.  It is also among the first to offer this service and technology in Asia.

As a matter of fact, in February 2010, Cordlife Philippines was officially launched.  It is the country’s first and only private cord blood processing and cryopreservation facility aimed to give the Filipino the chance to benefit from the advantages of having a readily available supply of cord blood.

To create awareness on cord blood banking’s importance as an available standard option for families who may need stem cell transplant, Cordlife recently launched One Blood.
