Cordlife ambassadress Pauleen Luna-Sotto co-hosted the event with Gelli Victor

Cordlife is amongst the leading players for private cord blood banking services in the past ten years in the country, giving chances and choices to help save lives.   Cordlife was founded 2001  in Singapore, and now operates in  HongKong, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Earlier today at Crowne Plaza, Cordlife invited families to join in the 10-year milestone celebration. Expectant parents back then, they put their trust in caring for their family's health at the time Cordlife set its foothold in Manila.

It All Began with a Chance and a Choice

Cordlife blood banking service was first introduced to the Philippine market in April 2009. Since then, Cordlife Philippines has reached a significant milestone of 10 years in the consumer healthcare industry. And the greatest breakthrough in Cordlife's journey began with a decision they made a decade ago---a chance taken and a choice made a decade ago that eventually proved to be right.

Their cord blood processing and storage facility in UP AyalaLand Technohub in Quezon City was established in 2010. It has a storage capacity for 30,000 cord blood and cord lining units and is built in accordance to global gold standards to give local families peace of mind.

On top of being first and only stem cell bank to be registered with DOH and certified by ISO in the country since 2012, Cordlife  also pioneered in earning the prestigious AABB Accreditation in 2017.

A Decade of Quality Cord Blood Banking and Beyond

During the past 10 years, Cordlife Philippines has built a tradition of delivering the highest of quality standards in service and product offerings to every Filipino family. From less than ten, their team of highly talented and dedicated workforce grew to almost a hundred nationwide.

To provide families with more treatment options in the future, they launched their cord lining banking service in 2013. And to ensure that their clients’ health is well taken care of in the most holistic way possible, they introduced Cordlife Care360° Safeguard Program, Cordlife Shield, Cordblood Network, and Cordlife Transplant Care.

Now, more and more families are gaining access to cord blood and cord lining banking as the company extends their services in Visayas and Mindanao with the opening of their Cebu and Davao satellite offices.

Their prolific years of experience in umbilical cord blood banking pushed them further to offer more quality services. Hence, the introduction of their umbrella brand, Genscreen®. With Genscreen®, they launched genetic screening services such as: NICE and Prevue Non-Invasive Prenatal Tests and PlumCare DNA Advisor, the first and only family genetic testing in the Philippines.

More than just a Cord Blood Bank

With the power of cord blood stem cells in their care, Cordlife Philippines values great responsibility to their community as well. That is why in 2017, they pioneered a national advocacy called One Blood. The CSR program grants free cord blood banking to qualified pregnant moms with family history of diseases that can be treated by cord blood stem cells.

In celebrating the first ever World Cord Blood Day in the country, Cordlife Philippines joined hand-in-hand with healthcare professionals, celebrity brand ambassadors, and Cordlife moms to spread awareness about cord blood and cord blood banking through informative talks and lectures.
