Cordlife has the most accredited cord blood banks in Asia

Two of Cordlife’s primary focus areas are providing reliable quality and being customer-centric. All of the Group’s facilities are accredited by the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies (“AABB”), an organisation dedicated to its mission of improving lives by making transfusion medicine and biotherapies safe, available and effective worldwide. Furthermore, Cordlife Singapore and Healthbaby Hong Kong are the only two private cord blood banks in Asia and five worldwide to be accredited by both AABB and the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (“FACT”), another world-class accreditation body for cord blood banks worldwide. In the area of clinical diagnostics, Cordlife India and Healthbaby Hong Kong are both accredited by the College of American Pathologists (“CAP”). This makes Healthbaby Hong Kong one of the few private cord blood banks in the world to be accredited by three international standard-setting bodies, and Cordlife India is one of the only two medical laboratories in West Bengal to be holding accreditations from the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (“NABL”) and CAP. These quality achievements reinforce the Group’s commitment to providing reliable healthcare solutions through innovation and technological advancement.
