MonoTx™ Cord Blood Cell Bank

MonoTx™ cord blood cell bank is AABB accredited and FDA registered public bank. Donated umbilical cord blood is collected after the birth of a newborn baby and is delivered to the MonoTx™ laboratory under controlled conditions. Cord blood processing is carried out in the cleanroom to isolate the hematopoietic stem cell (mononuclear cell enriched) by minimal manipulation. Cord blood mononuclear cells are tested to ensure the banking criteria are met including cell number, viability, potency, and negative of microbial growth. Human leucocyte antigen (HLA) typing is performed on the cord blood cells that will be important for patients to select the matched MNC for transplantation.

MonoTx™ public cord blood cell bank provides HLA typed cord blood cells for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, research and clinical studies of neurological and other disorders.

Cord blood Transplantation

Cord blood hematopoietic stem cell (HPC, Cord Blood) transplantation provides a treatment options for patients with leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell anemia, and many other malignancies disorders. MonoTx™ cord blood bank provides high quality HLA-typed hematopoietic cells for the treatment.
