CellSure Basic Overview | Birth Tissue Stem Cells: Why Donate or Store?
CellSure is a unique bank that stores stem cells from the placenta as an alternative to cord blood banking. Cellsure relies on the fact that a large proportion of the baby's blood remains in the placenta after birth. By processing the placenta to release stem cells, Cellsure offers parents storage of the same stem cells that are in cord blood, as well as additional stem cells that are found in the placental tissue. Cellsure does not separately collect and store umbilical cord blood like traditional cord blood banks.
CellSure is an L3C low-income limited liability company that empowers mothers to choose between public donation or private storage of birth tissue stem cells.
