CReATe is a Canadian family cord blood bank. We offer expectant parents the option to bank both umbilical cord blood and umbilical cord tissue (Peristem™) stem cells for future family use. Founded in 2005 by Dr. Clifford Librach, CReATe is the only bank in Canada that offers both cord blood and PeristemTM umbilical cord tissue stem cell banking. Umbilical cord tissue derived stem cells have great therapeutic and regenerative potential. Banking both sets of stem cells increases treatment options with cord blood, and also broadens the range of diseases that could be managed with umbilical cord stem cells.
