China Cord Blood Services Corporation

China-based cord blood collector

Cord blood banking operator in China

China Cord Blood (NYSE: CO), was dedicated to the storage of umbilical cord blood stem cells and related services for parents and their children throughout China and the Asia Pacific regions, with its headquarters in Hong Kong. Cord blood and cord tissue are extremely valuable to parents and their children because of their ability to heal the body, promote recovery, and because of their incredible therapeutic potential across numerous indications from heart disease to stroke to spinal cord damage. China Cord Blood was the first cord blood banking operator approved by the Ministry of Health in China and had exclusive blood storage services in the Beijing Municipality, the Guangdong Province, and the Zhejiang Province, covering approximately half of total newborns in the regions licensed to provide cord blood banking services. EW exited its position effective April 2014.
