Established in 1996 – the FIRST cord blood bank in Hong Kong

Encouraged by increasing number of successful cord blood transplant in the USA plus envisaging the huge potential for regenerative medicine, CRYOLIFE was officially put in service on 1st January 1998. It is the first private company in Asia, earlier than countries from Japan, Singapore, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, to introduce cryopreservation services of umbilical cord blood for benefits of families.
