The most frequent concern we hear about this revolutionary new technology is where do the human tissue cells come from? This is a legitimate concern to many, and unfortunately there has been a great deal of misinformation.
Our tissues are donated to and collected by a premium biotech provider who works with hospitals across the country to save these amazing life sustaining compounds.
When a healthy mother gives birth via C-section she is given the option to donate the umbilical cord and potentially help people with that gift. She is then screened for her safety, that of her child, and for the donated tissues against specific conditions like HIV, hepatitis and others. The cells are then tested for purity and viability and once safety has been determined the cells will be cryofrozen to preserve cell integrity. This allows the amazing gift that brings a child into this world to potentially help others as well.
