Cord Blood Stem Cell Technology and Processing

Cordlife uses the most advanced fully automated Sepax®2 technology for processing the cord blood.  

Stem cell isolation is a critical step in cord blood banking. It affects the number of stem cells that can be harvested or recovered from the cord blood. Cell recovery rates are critical because a higher number and better Quality of stem cells could enhance the success of the transplant or treatment. That's why Cordlife has invested in the Sepax®2 automated stem cell processing technology, a safe, sterile and fully automated cord blood processing technology – so you get adequate and potent stem cells for maximum transplant success*.

Sepax2 Stem Cell Technology

The first private cord blood bank in Singapore to offer the Sepax®2 automated processing technology, a Swiss-made and U.S. FDA-cleared Personalized Processing Instrument which can recover as high as 99.46%[1] of Total Nucleated Cells (TNC) from cord blood; up to 57%[2] higher cell count higher than other processing methods. It is also a functionally closed processing system which ensures the sterility of the cord blood by eliminating exposure to air contaminants and also cross contamination.
