Celltex’s mesenchymal stem cell banking is not just for adults. If you are expecting, have the peace of mind in knowing that the mesenchymal stems cells of your newborn baby are available in the placenta immediately after birth. This is a unique opportunity for the baby to bank their mesenchymal stem cells in an easy, completely non-invasive procedure. Once stored, the child would not have to go through another mesenchymal stem cell banking process.
What is the placenta?
The placenta is an organ that connects the developing fetus to the uterine wall to allow nutrient uptake, waste elimination and gas exchange via the mother’s blood supply. The placenta is a wonderful source for mesenchymal stem cells and Celltex has a proprietary process to extract these stem cells from the placenta. Because the placenta is considered medical waste, it can simply be collected after birth and shipped to us in one of our kits. The beauty of banking so early is that the child will never have to undergo a fat extraction procedure to bank their cells in the future. Their placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells are good for the lifetime of the banker.
