Sepax®2 - fully automated cord blood processing system(only available at Cordlife Singapore)
Stem cell isolation is a critical step in cord blood banking. It affects the number of stem cells that can be harvested or recovered from the cord blood. Cell recovery rates are critical because a higher number of stem cells could enhance the success of the transplant or treatment.
That's why Cordlife upgraded from processing cord blood manually to using a fully automated cord blood processing technology to help you maximize your investment. Cordlife is the only cord blood bank in Singapore that offers the world's most preferred fully automated cord blood processing technology, known as Sepax®2.
Sepax®2 is a Swiss-made and U.S. FDA-cleared device offers safe and sterile technology to recover as high as 99%* of stem cells* from cord blood. The system is functionally closed which ensures the sterility of the cord blood by eliminating exposure to air contaminants.
