Why cord blood

CReATe offers you the opportunity to collect and save your baby’s cord blood stem cells for potential medical uses to treat life-threatening diseases. If you do not choose to bank your baby’s cord blood, it will be discarded after birth.


Peristem program

The Peristem™ program offers parents the option to bank a new type of stem cell that is found in the tissues surrounding the blood vessels of the baby’s umbilical cord.
