My first discovery of cord blood banking was when I was still pregnant with my son, in 2004. Unfortunately during that time, cord blood banking can only be done in Singapore, which made its prospect outside of our back then very limited budget. Fourteen years since, I remain to be a believer. And if only we had the capacity to afford this back then, we surely would have given this a go.
Fast forward to 2019, and Cordlife is celebrating its 10th anniversary of giving chances and choices to save lives here in the Philippines. After all these years, the cord blood stem cell banking and its innovation, to me, remains to be nothing short of amazing. Especially when we round up all the stem cell treatable diseases that continues to be discovered at a revolutionary pace. I personally know of friends and loved ones who were given an extended lease to life, with their illnesses getting cured by stem cell therapy.
Cordlife is amongst the leading players for private cord blood banking services in most of the markets it operates in, namely Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam and the Philippines.
Cordlife Philippines was born in 2009
Cordlife was first introduced to the Philippine market in April 2009. 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.
It is the first and only stem cell bank to be registered with DOH and to be certified by ISO in the country since 2012. Cordlife is also the first in the Philippines to earn the prestigious AABB Accreditation in 2017.
Cordlife Philippines celebrates their 10th anniversary. It has been a fulfilling decade of giving chances and choices to help save lives. From an initial staff of less than ten, their highly talented team has grown to almost a hundred.

Ten Years of Quality Blood Banking
Cordlife Philippines does not just take pride in their expertise on cord blood banking. They also have kept their integrity in delivering the the highest quality standard in their service and product offerings.
Cordlife also provides families with more treatment options as they launched their cord lining banking service in 2013. And when a company thrives, offshoot fruits are inevitable. With their clients’ health in mind, Cordlife Care360° Safeguard Program, Cordlife Shield, Cordblood Network, and Cordlife Transplant Care were introduced along the way.
