Founding principle of CordSavings
To build a concrete, solid and effective medico-technical bridge that links the very legitimate desire for the autologous storage of neonatal stem cells for family purposes that many parents have worldwide with the needs, requirements and seriousness of public health systems.
Our goal is to prepare the ground, both on a biological and financial level, for the explosion of regenerative medicine based on stem cells as part of a technically and ethically approved approach. More personalised treatments, faster and more complete recoveries: these are the main issues in this medical field that needs to be patiently constructed starting now.
Our aim is above all to offer a new aspect of storing umbilical cord blood stem cells, for the parents and families, that will (finally) rectify the serious shortcomings in the field of autologous storage for family purposes.
1. First and foremost, our action positions itself on the medico-technical and biological excellence offered by our swiss stem cells biobank
At CordSavings, your family cord blood is treated with exactly the same quality requirements as those applied to public transplants. We believe that parents who have chosen autologous storage for family purposes have the right to the same conditions of treatment and storage for their child's stem cells as those reserved for public samples (known as allogeneic), in others words, the highest quality of medical standards.
In terms of family and autologous services, CordSavings' action is assuring the highest laboratory quality approach, at all stages of the process : from the initial analyses and the informed consent of the parents to the long-lasting cryopreservation of cord blood units within the frame of the Swiss platform entirely dedicated to this purpose.
Our action thus provides perfectly secure hematopoietic stem cell rich grafts, for truly transplantation treatments, if the need arises.
Through the quality of its biobank's intrinsic process, CordSavings intends to play a key role in henceforth affording stem cell storage for family purposes the same quality approach and stability as those applied at the best state-of-art biobanks.
2. But also on an economic level
Indeed, through CordSavings, cord blood private storage is becoming a real health savings process in both senses of the term: primarily biologically but also financially.
CordSavings is therefore, a biological investment (the storage of your child's cord in the most secure and most durable conditions), but also with a unique opportunity to greatly reduce the costs thanks to the savings side.
We offer to the future mothers the possibility of placing a significant amount of the money paid for autologous storage in a socially responsible savings account for their child. Thanks to the many years of our team's specialisation in the field of life science industries, this savings account greatly reduces the costs by offering an attractive investment for the child's benefit. Furthermore, through its work with institutional health actors, it contributes simultaneously to supporting the universal allogeneic system from which anyone can benefit.
By establishing these new basis, we have positioned ourselves at the heart of the Impact Investing movement. This means that the various CordSavings teams have worked for many years, and each in their respective specialised field, to combine an individual improvement with a universal social impact (future health that will be based on our cells and more exclusively on simple chemistry) and a carefully calibrated return on savings.
As you will have understood ! The major focus for CordSavings is quite simply bringing together savings and baby birth to enable a boarder, less expensive and more secure collection of umbilical cord blood in all aspects (family and public)
This project has been carefully developed over many years. It is led by a group of men and women who are both qualified and passionate. It brings together the most highly specialised expertise in obstetrics, stem cell research and public-private institutional financial structuring on a large-scale.
Our team comes from various geographical backgrounds. It has deliberately chosen the Swiss foundation "The Ark", the prestigious institution firmly focused on the most promising evolutions in life sciences, to anchor its action in the best protected and the safest territory possible in order to achieve its objectives: Switzerland.
