Cordlife Cord Blood Units (CBU)

On November 30, 2023, the Ministry of Health (MOH) issued a notice to Cordlife Group Limited (CGL), a cord blood banking service, to cease new collections and operations for up to six months. The action follows the discovery that seven of CGL’s cord blood storage tanks had experienced temperature excursions beyond acceptable limits, potentially compromising stem cells. Investigations revealed lapses in CGL’s processes and failure to address systemic issues promptly.

We will need to wait for CordLife to contact clients on whether our CBU was affected. I have stored it at the facility for 18 years and not sure whether it is in the affected tank where sub optimal temperature had been reached.
