Could there be other cells in my sample?

Both our Premium (Volume Reduced) and Standard (Whole Blood) cord blood packages make provision for future scientific development by storing more than just HSC’s.

If you opt for our Premium service, we will store what we call the buffy coat layer (this layer contains all stem cells found in the cord blood). This is likely to contain other types of stem cells like mesenchymal stem cells and VSEL’s which could be of benefit in the future as clinical applications progress with scientific research.
