What is the difference between storing cord blood and cord tissue?

Cord blood contains HSC’s (Haematopoietic stem cells) which are used in the treatment of blood related diseases such as leukaemia, anaemia and thalassemia.

There have been over 40,000 lifesaving stem cell transplants, for 85 conditions, performed using these stem cells since 1988.

Cord tissue contains MSC’s (Mesenchymal stem cells) which are currently being used in over 300 clinical trials around the world for regenerative medical purposes and the treatment of life altering conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and cerebral palsy.
