Americord is also a pioneer of cord tissue and placental tissue banking. These tissues are a valuable source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that can differentiate into many other types of cells in the body, including organ, muscle, skin, bone, cartilage, and fat cells. These cells are the subject of hundreds of exciting clinical trials worldwide to discover treatment opportunities for a host of different medical conditions, potentially revolutionizing medical practice.
Banking cord blood and cord or placental tissue is much like an insurance policy, an investment in your family’s future. We hope you never have a need for these stored stem cells, but if one should ever arise, we hope you will be relieved that you banked them with us for safekeeping.
