Vita 34 AG: Stems cells from the umbilical cord – safe with Vita 34

Vita 34 in Leipzig is a pioneer among the privately-run cord blood banks in Europe and is the largest private stem cell bank in the German-speaking region. As a full-service provider, Vita 34 offers collection logistics, preparation and stor­­age of um­­bilical cord blood and tissue. Using the so-called cryopreservation, cells and tissue are pre­­served at temperatures approaching minus 190 degrees Celsius and can, when required, be used as part of a medical ther­­apy. Currently, umbilical cord blood and tissue from more than 125,000 children from German and other European coun­­tries is being stored. Stem cell units stored at Vita 34 have already been used in 28 cases as part of treatments, individual cases and studies. These included using the umbilical cord blood in cases of infant brain damage and blood diseases as well as in a study on the treatment of Type 1 diabetes. The experience gained here is unique in the German-speaking region.

Since its inception in 1997, Vita 34 has not only been storing stem cell units, but has also been setting innovative standards through intensive research. In cooperation with renowned universities and research institutions Vita 34 is also active in applied research and is thereby playing an active role in the development of stem cell medicine.
