LifeCell’s Community Banking - Aligns With The Recommendations Of Medical Bodies & Stem Cell Transplant Physicians

LifeCell's Community Stem Cell Bank works similar to a Public Bank. Parents contribute their baby's cord blood stem cells to a common pool for use by themselves and other members of the community. This increases the chances of finding a suitable matching donor and thereby expands the treatment options for patients. Thus, the Community Banking model completely meets the IAP and IMA recommendations. Not only does Community Banking solve the challenges of low inventory and high costs of the public banking model, it is also a more sustainable business model compared to public banks.

Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) recommendation


Private cord blood banking must be strongly discouraged. Public cord blood banking serves the actual purpose of preservation by providing a common pool of donor stem cells thereby increasing the chances of finding a match and expanding the treatment options for Indian patients.


Consensus Statement of Indian
Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) - 15th June, 2018


ACOG, AAP and ASBMT recommendation


Likelihood of using own cord blood is very small (less than 0.04%). Hence, the donation of cord blood to public bank is recommended because there is 100 times more likely chance of release of a unit from public bank compared to a private bank.
