Why Mycord


THE ONLY BANKING RULE IS THE MYCORD POOL

Umbilical Cord Banking Redefined

It is an accepted fact endorsed by the medical fraternity world over that 95% of blood related disorders can be treated only by donor (allogeneic) UCB. Less than 5% can be treated by your own (autologous) UCB.

In most blood-related disorders Umbilical Cord Blood Transplant (UCBT) is recommended to be that of another person (allogenic) and not your own (autologous). If the child develops a disease such as leukemia or genetic/inherited disorders etc, the cord needs to be discarded rendering it unusable. Understanding the limited utility of your own cord blood unit for therapeutic application, Mycord has introduced the first Private Umbilical Cord Pool Banking concept in the country. Banking with us allows your family to become members of a combined pool of donor units via its Mycord Precious Pool Plan (MPPP). Mycord advocates that each UCB unit privately banked be stored as part of a pool thereby providing an easy access to the best-matched cord blood unit.

It is imperative that every ‘parent-to-be’ must understand the gravity of the situation as summarized and act accordingly.

  • Use of your own cord blood in majority conditions is not recommended
  • UCB Transplant requires a matched unit from another person, related or unrelated
  • Procurement of cord blood from a public bank outside of India, if available is very expensive
  • Most patients in India needing UCB transplant are deprived due to unavailability of matched units

Preserving your baby’s cord blood stem cells with Mycord Precious Pool Plan (MPPP) along with cord tissue stem cells offers a complete cover from a wide range of blood-related and tissue degenerative ailments.

Mycord One for One


Mycord offers ONE cord blood unit for ONE cord blood unit privately banked at NO EXTRA COST. Mycord to provide one cord blood unit for each cord blood unit privately banked. That is, if cord blood unit is required by either one of the family members including the child, sibling or parent, instead of depending on your banked cord only, you shall be provided with the best matched cord from those available in the pool. Similarly your cord shall be made available to anyone who matches the cord and is part of the pool. This is done at no additional cost of procuring a cord which otherwise, if available in a public bank is very expensive.

This unique plan is specifically designed for the advantage of those parents who have opted to bank their umbilical cord blood (UCB) with Mycord Precious Pool Plan. It is imperative for parents to understand that only Umbilical Cord Blood is part of the pool. The cells derived from the Umbilical Cord Tissue, the Amniotic Membrane and the direct storage of the cord are exclusively for personal use only.

Storing UCB with Mycord Precious Pool Plan (MPPP) offers protection to the entire family, the much needed ‘Medical Insurance’.
