Scientific research and clinical trials have indicated that cellular therapies could be a potent solution to strengthen the body’s own repair and maintenance mechanism. With their fuss-free harvesting methods, easy isolation and expansion potential with little immunogenicity, MSCs could potentially be used in future regenerative medicine applications.
Bank your stem cells now to secure your opportunity for potential stem cell treatments in the future. If you have missed out on banking your child’s cord stem cells, this is another opportunity to store their stem cells and safeguard your family’s future.
Stem cells are pluripotent cells which can multiply without limit to replenish other cells. They can function as a repair system for your body, and are capable of maturing into specialised cells like muscle, blood and brain cells.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), which can be extracted from the bone marrow, adipose (fat) or cord tissue, are able to regenerate structural and connective tissues by adapting into bone, cartilage, fat, heart, liver, muscle and nerve tissues.
In addition, MSCs are found to possess immunomodulatory functions which could potentially be used in the future to “correct” abnormal immune responses and treat illnesses like Parkinson’s Disease.
Stem cells can be harvested from three sources — the bone marrow, umbilical cord, and adipose (fat) tissue.
Umbilical Cord Harvesting
Stem cells are obtained from the umbilical cord blood shortly after baby’s birth.
Bone Marrow Harvesting
Stem cells are extracted from the marrow cavity of the hipbone. It’s a short process that takes approximately 30 minutes under local anaesthesia.
Adipose (fat) Extraction
Stem cells are harvested from fat tissues in the body via liposuction.
Everyone who has a healthy body can store their stem cells, but medical evidence shows that stem cells harvested from people at a younger age are more likely to produce better treatment outcomes. This is because younger people produce more high quality stem cells that are more likely to survive longer and expand into a larger variety of cell types. Bank your stem cells today to preserve them in their prime.
As stem cells age, they lose the ability to differentiate into other cell types and increase the likelihood of contamination by viruses, diseases, toxins and mutations.
licensed by Singapore’s Ministry of Health to process, cryopreserve and store stem cells, ensures that your stem cells are banked safely. Adhering to international standards, our well-maintained ISO Class 5 clean room laboratory is well equipped to perform sophisticated laboratory stem cell culturing as well as stem cell cryopreservation. All stem cells are carefully and properly handled to ensure no contamination.
“Stem Cells show tremendous potential in regenerative and rejuvenation medicine. There has been an increasing number of clinical trials being conducted worldwide”

Secure an additional form of biological insurance by banking your stem cells before medical illnesses develop. Research has shown that stem cells may be used as a potential treatment option for the following diseases*:
|Genetic and/or Metabolic Disorders||
Stem Med is the first private stem cell banking facility in Singapore that specialises in the processing, cryopreservation and storage of adult stem cells.
Vertically integrated and streamlined to safeguard our clients’ best interest, our cellular laboratory is licenced with the Singapore Ministry of Health and compliant with the most stringent guidelines and certifications.
We believe that preserving stem cells secures a lifeline for generations to come, and our role is to provide a biological insurance for your future.
