Medical Need Program

Medical Need Program 


Insception Lifebank Cord Blood Program established this program to offer compassionate support to Canadian families who have an immediate family member possibly requiring a stem cell transplant within the first year following the expected baby’s birth. This is the largest program of its kind in Canada, with more than 400 participants who have benefited from free cord blood processing and 18 years of storage courtesy of Insception Lifebank.



Approval is on a case-by-case basis on the recommendation of the treating Oncologist, Haematologist or Medical Geneticist with the condition that the cord blood unit might be required for transplant within the first year of storage.
