Storage media is also one of the important factors that influence stem cells activity, irrespective of the expensive costs incurred, HealthBaby persists to use liquid nitrogen as the storage medium to safeguard every child and family's lifelong health. Best still, HealthBaby adopts sealed freezing bag for storage to eradicate cross-contamination21,22.

 

Liquid Nitrogen Storage


 
  • Only liquid nitrogen can keep stable -196˚C. Cord blood stem cells will suspend all physiological activities and remain dormant22,23
  • Almost all public cord blood banks, including worldwide large blood banks, use liquid nitrogen for stem cells storage
  • Most of the cord blood transplanted samples are stored in liquid nitrogen
  • "No matter the cord blood stores in liquid nitrogen or vapor nitrogen, a cross-contamination might happen if containers are not airtight. Only seal the containers in a second, over-wrap bag for prevent eventual cross contamination24,25." Therefore, some cord blood banks claim that liquid nitrogen causing cross-contamination is erroneously reported

To provide expectant parents with the highest quality services, HealthBaby not only adopts the most advanced storage and processing system, but also emphasizes the storage medium of both cord blood and umbilical cord. According to literature, only under liquid nitrogen of -196℃ could the stem cells be stored permanently19. Therefore, irrespective of the expensive costs incurred, HealthBaby persists to use liquid nitrogen as the storage medium to safeguard every child and family's lifelong health. If liquid nitrogen would cause cross contamination, how would the public cord blood banks, including New York Blood Center which has the highest number of successful transplant cases, and worldwide large blood banks still adopt the liquid nitrogen system?

On the contrary, there is no factual basis for the claim of stem cells being able to store permanently under -135℃. Noted that using the vapor nitrogen storage system would cause temperature fluctuation upon stem cells storage and thawing and seriously affect the viability of all samples' stem cells.
