Our Past, Present, and Future

Established in 1996 and encouraged by the increasing number of successful cord blood transplants in the USA, and envisaging the huge potential for regenerative medicine, CRYOLIFE officially began its cord blood storage service on January 1st, 1998. It was one of the first private Cord Blood Bank companies in Asia to introduce cryopreservation services of umbilical cord blood for the benefit of families.

The Mission to Match our History

As the most experienced cord blood bank in Hong Kong, CRYOLIFE has always stuck to its mission and values. Together with providing long term quality cryopreservation options, Cryolife’s mission is to promote public awareness and educate expectant parents with honest, accurate and balanced information on the benefits of umbilical specimen banking for critical medical treatments, as well as the enormous potential for regenerative medicine and cellular therapies.
