Although there are several sources of stem cells discovered, there are only two clinically established sources namely
- Umbilical Cord
to be residing them for clinical use. At the time of delivery, Umbilical cord and the residual blood is collected at the theatre to process the stem cells in the lab for banking under controlled conditions. The milk teeth are collected at the dental clinics before they naturally fall off, to be processed in the lab for harvesting stem cells before banking them for intended applications.
Blood stem cells are for transplantations to treat blood and related diseases while Mesenchymal stem cells are for repair, regenerate and reconstruct damaged organs to manage diseases.
Pregnant women and kids aged between 5 and 11 years of the family are the donors of these sources from which Transcell has established the process to collect stem cells to bank today for treatments.
According to medical researchers, families with stored stem cells will have more medical options later in life.
