I have been attending Cordlife events for 3 consecutive years now. Though I have been blessed to have 3 healthy kids from a previous marriage. Still, I missed the chance of having my cord blood banked. As there were no available cordblood banks except from abroad during the 90s when my kids were born. The generation today are blessed to have a choice for cord blood banking. Imagine, the diseases that it would be treated in the future for your kids and family. It really is a gift of a lifetime to those you love.
To those who do not know. Cord blood is a rich source of blood stem cells. Stem cells are the building blocks of the blood and immune system. They have the ability to develop into other types of cells, so they can help repair tissues, organs, and blood vessels and can be used to treat a host of diseases.
The cord blood stem cell discoveries are nothing short of miraculous, especially with the list of stem cell treatable diseases that continuously grows at a rapid pace. Through this development, many illnesses that were deemed incurable now have cures, and cord blood banks have started to be set up all over the world.
Cordlife recently celebrates its 10th year anniversary last April 23 at Crowne Plaza. The event was attended by Cordlife management, Cordlife ambassadors and families who availed of Cordblood banking.
Cordlife is amongst the leading players for private cord blood banking services in most of the markets it operates in, namely Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam and the Philippines.
It All Began with a Chance and a Choice
This year, Cordlife Philippines has reached a significant milestone of 10 years in the consumer healthcare industry. But the greatest breakthrough in their journey began with a decision they made a decade ago. A chance they took and a choice they made back then that proved to be right.
Their cord blood banking service was first introduced to the Philippine market in April 2009, and was headquartered in Antel Corporate Centre in Ortigas.
Their cord blood processing and storage facility in UP AyalaLand Technohub in Quezon City was established in 2010. It has a storage capacity for 30,000 cord blood and cord lining units and is built in accordance to global gold standards to give local families peace of mind.
It is the first and only stem cell bank to be registered with DOH and to be certified by ISO in the country since 2012. Cordlife is also the first in the Philippines to earn the prestigious AABB Accreditation in 2017.
A Decade of Quality Cord Blood Banking and Beyond
During the past 10 years, Cordlife Philippines has built a tradition of delivering the highest of quality standards in service and product offerings to every Filipino family. From less than ten, their team of highly talented and dedicated workforce grew to almost a hundred nationwide.
To provide families with more treatment options in the future, they launched their cord lining banking service in 2013. And to ensure that their clients’ health is well taken care of in the most holistic way possible, they introduced Cordlife Care360° Safeguard Program, Cordlife Shield, Cordblood Network, and Cordlife Transplant Care.
Now, more and more families are gaining access to cord blood and cord lining banking as the company extends their services in Visayas and Mindanao with the opening of their Cebu and Davao satellite offices.
Their prolific years of experience in umbilical cord blood banking pushed them further to offer more quality services. Hence, the introduction of their umbrella brand, Genscreen®. With Genscreen®, they launched genetic screening services such as: NICE and Prevue Non-Invasive Prenatal Tests and PlumCare DNA Advisor, the first and only family genetic testing in the Philippines.
More than just a Cord Blood Bank
With the power of cord blood stem cells in their care, Cordlife Philippines values great responsibility to their community as well. That is why in 2017, they pioneered a national advocacy called One Blood. The CSR program grants free cord blood banking to qualified pregnant moms with family history of diseases that can be treated by cord blood stem cells.
In celebrating the first ever World Cord Blood Day in the country, Cordlife Philippines joined hand-in-hand with healthcare professionals, celebrity brand ambassadors, and Cordlife moms to spread awareness about cord blood and cord blood banking through informative talks and lectures.
And as a gesture of gratitude to their clients, Cordlife introduced their Privilege Card that offers discounts and promos from their trusted partner brands.
Their journey in saving lives does not end here. The gift of giving chances and choices in securing precious stem cells will continue as they remain steadfast in providing reliable healthcare solutions and delivering excellence in cord blood banking and more.
With a firm belief that their services may offer life-changing and life-saving therapeutic options for families in the future, their commitment to continuously offer quality services will never be compromised. Because after all, Cordlife is really all about celebrating the gift of life!
