Cryoviva, as India’s foremost umbilical cord blood stem cell bank is fully aware of this responsibility of providing easily accessible quality services to its masses. Hence we are providing our stem cell banking services ensuring international standards through our high-end automated processing technology and globally certified R&D facilities. Cryoviva stands out as the preferred choice for parents deciding to bank their baby’s cord blood stem cells and this has led to more than 2.6 Lakhs parents choosing Cryoviva as their bank of choice.

Based at Gurugram with networks in all the towns of India, Cryoviva has spread beyond its shores to Thailand, Singapore, UAE, Nepal, Bangladesh, and East Africa, making it the only Indian Cord Blood bank available in international markets. Cryoviva has their operations in over 15+ countries with laboratories in India, Thailand and Singapore.

Cryoviva India follows the “Closed bag” collection method for harvesting cord blood stem cells which greatly reduces the possibility of contamination of cord blood. Cryoviva has been accredited by international quality standards including AABB (formerly known as American Association of Blood Banks), CAP, NABL, WHO etc. Cryoviva is licensed by the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI).

Collection Kit

Every Kit Box issued to its clients by Cryoviva is UN3373 certified and contains all the important contents: Cryoviva uses Terumo penpol 150ml blood bag that is sterile and can be used for cord blood collection during C-section delivery. The cord blood collection bag is prefilled with anticoagulant CPD with a needle protector that helps in preventing accidental pricks during cord blood collection. The kit also contains 2 falcon tubes, one filled with washing solution for initial decontamination of the umbilical cord at the time of collection, along with another falcon tube with transportation medium for safe transportation of umbilical cord tissue to our facility, a secondary leak proof ziplock to hold cord tissue containers, 95 KPA Bag as per the IATA requirement, an insulated aluminum foil pouch for the blood bag, absorbent pad, alcohol swab, maternal blood collecting vacutainers, povidone iodine prep-pad, sterile plastic cord clamp, para film, blood collection needle with luer adapter, vacutainer holder and tourniquet, a pair of sterile surgical gloves, gel pack etc. These are all the supplies that are required at the time of cord blood and cord tissue collection.

Transportation container

The cell quality and viability of the collected cord blood sample is maintained optimally during the transportation with the help of UN3373 certified Kit boxes. The kit box is carefully designed to ensure that the optimum temperature as per the regulatory & accreditation requirements is maintained during the transportation of collected cord blood samples. The kit box is made up of thermocol with outer hard cardboard packing as per the international guidelines. The twin frozen gel packs are used to sandwich the blood bag, which in turn is packed using a 95 KPA bag, followed by an insulated foil pouch which ensures the optimum temperature maintenance for up to 72 hrs.

The client receives a preservation report that includes all the details related to transportation of their sample to our facility: temperature, collected cord blood volume, processing time, preserved volume, preserved temperature etc.

Processing Method

Purity begins at child birth & so does the preservation of life saving stem cells. It has always been an endeavour of Cryoviva to provide the best technology; hence the first fully automated cord blood processing technology, Sepax was brought to India by Cryoviva in 2009.  

“SEPAX - A fully automated US FDA approved, AABB accredited, FACT Netcord Compliant Swiss technology for umbilical cord blood processing.”

  • Eliminates any possibility of cross contamination.
  • Smooth & precise cell separation as manual intervention is not involved.
  • Process every cord blood unit individually.
  • Safe & highly sterile during processing.

Maternal Blood Sample:

Infectious diseases tests like HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HTLV, CMV, Syphilis, Malaria Infections & NAT (HIV1 RNA, HBV DNA & HCV RNA) are performed at the time of processing and storage. Additional maternal serum & plasma are also preserved for future testing purposes, if any.

Cord Blood Sample:

ABO grouping and RH typing, Total Nucleated Cell (TNC) count, Mononuclear Cell (MNC) count, CD34 cell count, cell viability, sterility testing for microbial culture, microbial contamination, Colony Forming Unit (CFU) assay & Hemoglobinopathies.

Cord Tissue:

Characterization report (both positive & negative), viability test, sterility, mycoplasm analysis, differentiation potential, endotoxin test, positive surface markers like CD 105, CD73, CD44 & CD90, negative surface markers like CD45, CD34, CD14, CD19 & HLA-DR, characteristics of differentiation into Osteoblasts, Adipocytes & Chondroblasts. All these tests are performed at the time of retrieval upon approval from respective government bodies in India and abroad.

Additional Testing:

HLA typing is performed on the 2nd birth anniversary of the child by Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). If the cord blood unit is retrieved for therapy additional tests are performed at no cost to the client:  HLA typing for both donor & recipient by NGS, TNC count, MNC count, sterility test, viability test, CFU test.

Storage Method

Cord Blood:

The processed Cord Blood is preserved in a FDA-approved multi-compartment cryobag encased between specially designed aluminium cassettes. It is cooled by the standard process of controlled rate freezing in the vapour phase of cryogenic nitrogen until reaching a temperature below -150 degree Centigrade.

Cord Tissue:

At Cryoviva, Cord Tissue goes through a process of decontamination and is preserved directly in vials. Cord Tissue stoage gives a once in a lifetime opportunity to our clients, to extract Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) through our patented technology. Cryoviva uses explants cell culture method if a unit is released for treatment. This will be offered without any additional cost, in case any God-forbid event arises in the future, upon approval by respective government bodies in India and abroad.
